Abstract

In part, the domination of the Labour Party reflects the normal exaggerative features of the first-past-the-post electoral system : the largest party in terms of vote share tends to get a disproportionate share of the seats. That electoral system is also prone to produce biased outcomes. This has been the case in the English metropolitan boroughs throughout their existence, with consistent pro-Labour biases.
