Our democracy is broken. Here are the the numbers of votes each party received, followed by the number of MPs they got:
Party Votes Seats
Conservative Party 11,300,303 (36.9%) 330 (50.8%)
Labour Party 9,344,328 (30.4%) 232 (35.7%)
UK Independence Party 3,881,129 (12.6%) 1 (0.2%)
Liberal Democrats 2,415,888 (7.9%) 8 (1.2%)
Scottish National Party 1,454,436 (4.7%) 56 (8.6%)
Green Party 1,157,613 (3.8%) 1 (0.2%)
So as you can see, 3.8 million people voted for UKIP (a bunch of wankers, but still...) but ended up with just one MP and no power at all. The greens got the same number of MPs with juste 1.1 million votes. Only 1.5 million people voted for the SNP and they got 56 seats.
The system is rigged so that power is always held by either Labour or the Conservatives. No-one else can get a look in, even if like UKIP they manage to gain quite and impressive amount of support. 12.6% of the vote, 0.2% of the seats. See how it works?
So at election time the choice is basically Labour or the Tories. The Tories will sell our freedom off with glee, and Labour aren't much better. But no-one cares about that come election time. Since the system is designed to avoid hung parliaments and any kind of power sharing it tends to produce totalitarian governments who rip away our rights and freedoms (human rights are being flushed away as we speak).
