Nigel Farage has repeated his attack on the first-past-the-post voting system, saying he felt the 3.8 million voters who backed Ukip should be better represented.
Writing in the Independent,he said: “It is my view that the first-past-the-post system is now totally bankrupt. It has turned general election campaigns into “please vote for me, I’m not quite as ugly as the other one” situations, rather than parties fighting over policy positions and serious issues. It has directly led to a campaign of total negativity and triviality.
Mr Farage also said he would “think seriously” about his next move, and hinted he wanted to play a role in an referendum on the EU.
He said: “I say that, though it nags in the back of my mind that this majority Conservative government has promised a referendum on Britain’s EU membership. I guess I face some tough decisions.”
When a political party gets 12,6 per cent of the votes, are honored with only one of 650 seats in a parliament, “Houston” we have a problem.
The British Independence party (UKIP) came in second in 156 constituency. In the british system you can get 49 per cent of the votes, and possibly not win a single seat.
The Conservative party got 36 per cent of the votes, and captured a clear cut majority. The Scottish Nationalist party got 5,4 of the votes, and was handed 56 seats. No doubt that the people of Wales and Northern Ireland feels the discrimination.
Let us at least hope that David Cameron and the Conservatives see that the people in Britain wants to remain independent. And not be assimilated into the European Union. Let us pay for a “no” vote in the upcoming promised referendum.
Romans 13: 1-3
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
David Cameron has earlier said that England is a “Christian nation”, and should remain so. Let us hope he do not compromise. Unlike Obama, who have said that Islam is as American as all other religions. Every government is permitted to take office by God the Bible. May Jesus the Messiah bless the next government in the United Kingdom.
