The statistics are quite striking: Labour: 36% of the vote cast led to 356 seats (or 55%). Conservative: 33% of the vote cast led to 197 seats (or 30%). Liberal Democrat: 23% of the vote cast let to 62 seats (or 10%). Add to this the disastrous postal voting system, with many people not being able to vote and with the threat of ballot rigging. John Humphrys turned up to vote and found that a postal ballot had been issued (to someone else) in his name! Any Questions/Any Answers on Radio 4 today stated that they were overwhelmed with telephone calls about the electoral system. I think this will be a priority issue in the minds of the public for the next Parliament. I am sure Bliar would like to see the status quo continue, but with a majority of 64 he is on shaky ground! The Electoral Commission are sure to investigate the problems with the system and it sounds as if the public at large do not agree with the view of the media pundits that the bloody nose for Labour was what the electorate wanted. I think the electorate wanted Bliar out and are now angry at the skewed anf failing electoral system.
