Why the British Electoral System Has To Change

Alongside 1.15 million people in  UK , I voted for the Green Party on May the 7th. Our ‘First past The Post ‘ electoral system means that this translates to just one seat in the house of commons. Contrast this with the Scottish National Party  who received 1.4 million votes and yet have gained 56 seats, a result hardly representative of the wishes of the British people. It is high time for our electoral system to change.
