I’m a great supporter of proportional representation, in particularly STV, and not a foul-weather friend like Gordon Brown (my election 2005 first thoughts were “55% of the seats on 36% of the vote though. Can we have PR?”). Thus I was quite surprised last night in Nick Clegg’s interview to see that he didn’t seem to be aware that a party could win most votes but not most seats. It was quite strange – he genuinely didn’t seem to understand Paxman’s point. I guess he might have been pretending not to understand, in order to ignore it, and I suppose it would hardly lose him votes.
