Who came second?

Posted on

This map comes from a tweet by someone called Jo Wood, posted on Twitter yesterday. It shows the UK electoral result, and who came second in each seat:

Why is it relevant? Because it shows who missed out in our first-past-the-post system.

The Tories should have more seats than they got.

And look at the SNP performance - which shatters the idea that they are off the agenda.

And yes, the Reform list is long, but there are also really big patches of Green - often in cities.

Unsurprisingly, the LibDems and Labour have little to gain: FPTP suited them well this time.

This issue is not going away, I suggest. We have a two-party electoral system where one of those two parties has failed and the country supports many parties. FPTP's party is over, I suggest.

Thanks for reading this post.
