This 16,000 votes nonsense
I've seen a few people using this line about the Tories only being 16,000 votes short of a majority. True, maybe, but meaningless. After the election there are quite a few new Con-Lab marginals. In several of them the majority is in the hundreds of votes. Perhaps someone should crunch the numbers and see how many votes Labour was short of being the largest party?
