I wished we had the British system so we could quick call an election before vast chunks of the electorate forget what turds the Republicans are, but I learned that the British don't have the British system anymore.

It was an impressive combination of gerrymandering, message discipline so that CPC (non-communist) members aren't actually allowed to speak, and people who are terrible at math voting against their own interests.

Also, a demonstration the downsides of sticking a Bush Republican as the leader of the only serious non-CPC party.

There were dozens of ridings, enough to flip the election, where idiotic third-party voting put CPC (non-communist) MPs into office despite them receiving only 30-40% of the actual votes.
