Re: Wow, it's almost...

In reality, it is far more democratic - the makeup of MEPs is far more reflective of peoples views than the broken british FPTP system.

For example Cornwall

MEP wise, the south west region has 2 Con, 2 UKIP 1 Lab 1 Green - those four parties combined representing just shy of 86% of the votes cast (lib dems got a further 10%, and then the rest split between various fascist parties like ED , BNP, AIfE)

MP wise, Cornwall has 6 Con MPs, who managed 48% of the vote , meaning 52% of peoples political views aren't reflected.
