You are thinking in terms of the two party politics that FPTP actively enforces.

The thing with PR is that parties can campaign for what they believe in. It would make sense for Labour to be two or...

Tipping Point is mostly a game of chance with a small element of general knowledge. The addition of the x2 counter makes it even more a game of chance.
