British Election Follow-Up

My last update on the British election was a story of the Liberal Democrat party’s increasing dominance in the world of British politics. However, in the last week they have lost that dominance, as the election held last Thursday left them with a much smaller number of Members of Parliament (MPs) than expected. The party received 57 seats, as opposed to the 62 they got in the 2005 election, according to the BBC. The election resulted in a hung parliament for the first time since 1974, when there was a Labour/Liberal Democrat party coalition.
