    MEPs are elected on a PR basis.

    It's still better than first past the post and the mess is a reflection of the method chosen and the indifference people with which people view the european elections. So what is your suggestion to sort it?

    Most people in this country do not vote tory, indeed in most tory seats most of the electorate vote for anyone but the tories yet we have a tory government. Very few MP's get more than 50% of the vote to win outright most are on less than 1/3rd of the vote. We imposed proportional representation on germany, austria and italy post ww2 as it is a system that prvents a minority taking control. hitler did it with less than 1/3rd of the deputies in the reichstag the first thing he did was prevent opposition members being able to vote. There are rioght wing parties in germany nand austria yes they get seats ad make headway but they are not able to take over in the way brexiteers have in this country.

    Boris johnston was elected by less than 1% of the electorate in this country you are trying to defend the indefensible.

    Unionists are now talking aboutb imposing a 2/3rds of the electirate in favour for a future indyref in scotland. Yoo bad they didnlt do that for brexit.

    Why is westminster so terrified that scitland become independent if we are such a drain as they keep suggesting we are.
