“The non-Conservative parties are divided and fractious.
Under the pressure of the election campaign it is just possible that some of them might come together to present a united front.” – ELECTORAL CALCULUS
Will the dominant, non Tory part of the Electorate settle for more Divide & Rule? Or will they be smart and box clever? During this election campaign the anti Tory majority could use social media and their united opposition to the Tories to organise a voting effort.
The voters could put aside their differences and have a government that represented the range of views in the British electorate, instead of minority Tory rule.
As Donald Trump’s election & the Brexit referendum proved, a shift in public opinion during the campaign can do much to change the outcome. Corbyn’s Labour need a National vote share swing of 7% to comfortably stop the Conservatives having an outright majority.
For Corbyn’s Labour to be the largest party in the House of Commons, Labour need to see a swing of 11% in the national vote. To get a majority Labour Administration in the Government benches, Labour need a swing in the National vote of 15%.
This is because, as UKIP & Liberal Democrat voters know, First Past the Post is bad for voters, bad for government and bad for democracy. The system we use to elect our MPs has a real impact on Britain. It has a direct effect on government policy and whether we can hold them to account if they let us down. First Past the Post is the worst possible system for electing our representatives. However, it is the voting system we’ve got, and that being the case non Tory voters must look for a route to stop another minority tory government being foisted on the majority.
The 63% could stop the Tories from getting back in. Theresa May has rolled the dice with stacked odds. If non tory voters use social media to co ordinate, they could make her regret it. To keep the Tories out, all non Tory voters need to vote for the strongest non Tory candidate in their constituency.
“THEY WOULD BENEFIT UNDER THE FIRST-PAST-THE-POST ELECTORAL SYSTEM, SINCE IT WOULD BE EASIER TO WIN SEATS. AND A UNITED GROUP MIGHT ATTRACT MORE VOTER SUPPORT AS WELL. THE PUBLIC MIGHT DO THE POLITICIANS’ WORK FOR THEM.” – ELECTORAL CALCULUS
