Safe seats

368 seats are so safe the Electoral Reform Society has already called the result in them.

•25.7 million voters live in safe seats.

•79.3% of constituencies in North East England are safe seats, with 77.8% in Northern Ireland and 70% in the East of England.

•225 constituencies have not changed political hands since before 1950 and some not since the 19th century!

As the ERS used to say, the Single Transferable Vote (STV) voting system would solve the problem.
