Isn't it a bit...interesting...to give as a feature, rather than a bug, of the Westminster system that opinions that some of the people hold that other people don't like are unrepresented in parliament?

"Why doesn't my vote count?" shouted short-memoried fools, despite the fact that the Tories in 2010 got more votes than Labour did in the previous election... I'm not pro-Tory, but I am anti-hypocrisy.)

Re:the cake is a lie!

The cake is not a lie. Now please remain where you are while someone comes to transport you to your party. If you leave then you will miss your party and not get any cake.
