Electoral Calculus have looked at the share of the vote UKIP would require to get at least one MP and estimate that they’d need at least 24% of the vote to do so. In some circumstances they’d need even more votes. But that’s not all - to win a majority, they’d need just 34%.This suggests a voting system which is fundamentally unstable and can’t cope with our multi-party politics. You can play with the figures here (and look at, for example, what share of the vote the Greens would need to make significant in-roads) by going to their website:http://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/Analysis_UKIP.html
