No UK party has received a majority of votes since 1931. The Conservative Party is a minority party. The Labour Party is a minority party. All UK parties are minority parties. Why should a minority be allowed to govern all of us alone? #ChangeTheVotingSystem https://twitter.com/MakeVotesMatter/stat...
