To give you more information on the British system. It's not really a three party system more like a two and a half. The Liberal Democrats only got 22% of the popular vote, but they gained 10 seats. They did these because they ran regionally in places like Wales and large urban section of England. The conservative party stays strictly in England the Labour Party is all over. The liberal democrats used to get in the uper 20%, but they didn't get any seats because it's a single distric system instead of a PR. It will be interesting to see if the Liberal Democrats can tried to spread more into labour territory and get an election where this is no majority government. In which case there will have to be a coalition government which is rare in a single distric system.
