UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said: "This campaign for electoral reform is vital, now. The results of the General election show this where 5 million votes, the views of 5 million people are now represented by only 2 MPs; 4 million people voted for UKIP, for only 1 seat. It cannot go on like this.

"It is important to be here, with the Electoral Reform Society supporting its campaign to make votes match seats.  I'm also delighted to be joining with Douglas Carswell who has campaigned for political reform for years and is leading the UKIP charge for this in the House of Commons".
