I have been reflecting on Labours performance last night down here in the South West. Perhaps someone better at maths should check this but from what I can see:
Labour were on 7.7% - that is just one in thirteen voters - but only a third of eligible voters turned up and bothered to vote.
Which means Labour secured only about 2.5% of the voters eligible to vote.
So of the people who *could* have voted Labour on Thursday only one in 40 actually did so; to support the party that is running the country.
