One person one vote

POSTED: Friday 6 May, 0340BST

As anyone who took part in our Take Ten election game will know, in the 2001 election the candidate who polled the lowest number of votes was Amos Klein, who got 43 votes in Hampstead and Highgate.

That record has been well and truly shattered this time.

Catherine Taylor-Dawson scored just one vote in Cardiff North, standing for the Vote for Yourself Rainbow Dream Ticket, though she did also stand in the three other Cardiff seats where she had more success (37 in Central, 79 in South, and 167 in West).

Actually, that got broken later on by the Veritas candidate in Chester, who polled 0 votes :)

Please can we have a video clip of Catherine Taylor-Dawson's post-results announcement speech(es) - she brought a guitar along and sang a song in front of the election hall!

Catherine Taylor-Dawson won? Oh, right...

I wonder who voted for her...

When will this country get proportional representation? This sytem is antiquated and needs changing - soon!
