Well what we seem to be seeing in a lot of european countries like Netherlands is far right parties increasing their grip and influence so im not sure i agree. 

They might increase their numbers but they can't do much with it.  With FPTP who knows what the Netherlands be like.  Maybe Wilders being leader due to the freak way the system can disproportionately reward one party more than others.

On the contrary, I think it would clip the wings of any far right party.  Parties that are supposedly on the left would win more often or at least together would win more often.

At the moment the Tories are so frightened of Farage they do what he wants without him having any MPs at all.

I think it is FTFP that makes the UK look more right wing than it really is.

Was there not an election where UKIP got more votes than SNP and got 50 less MPs, or something?    Sometimes it works.

I read that as "quincenonces" and was almost about to stand up for the National Front/BNP/Referendum/Veritas/UKIP/Brexit/REFUCK parties, you monster.

(I know I'm bound to have missed a few incarnations of the Monster Raving Racist Party there, so apologies)

My apologies. It's a Spike Milligan usage that I've always liked.

Maybe but I always thought that the credibility of the SNP rested mainly on its strength in the Scottish Parliament rather than it bloated presence at Westminister.

Also I despise UKIP and similar but I actually think they would be  damaged by operating out in the open instead of hiding in the shadows influencing public opinion while pretending they have no platform.

Anyone who is pleased that FPTP keeps UKIP out is basically saying "God bless the Tories."

Or, "I like democracy, but not too much of it".

Everyone should've been worried when the proto-fascists started picking up larger voter share with no representation outside of regional government. It only plays into their surreal oppression fantasies.

Pretty much what happened to the BNP. Griffin getting on Question Time did them much more harm than good.
