    I agree with that Pat ----- which was in fact the essence of my earlier post....to make the UK election results more democratic......still, nice to find a level of agreement between us.......;o)

    Right - which is a somewhat inappropriate issue in a General Election, as constituents cannot even vote for their preferred representative in Parliament......albeit, I would agree that in reality, it isn't a major issue as many electorate members end up with a Parliamentary representative that they clearly didn't want!!
