Comment on 2010 General Election Results by David.
I got the figures online (multiple sources are using the same numbers), removed the parties that didn’t achieve 1 MP in 2005 or 2010 and left in those that lost all their MPs this time and left the BNP and UKIP in (even though they’ve never had MPs) because they are of interest to the public.
So the list only shows parties that in 2005 and 2010 have or have had some power (at least 1 MP) plus UKIP and the BNP.
The parties that gained no MPs that I didn’t add to the list I totalled their votes together as others.
I didn’t calculate the % (other than the other parties value), but I found the same % from multiple sources. When I get some time I’ll check them by confirming all the numbers and then working out the %s myself.
Thanks for letting me know of a possible problem. I have to admit I’m a little anal retentive when it comes to statistics and maths and would hate to have the wrong numbers!
