Of course the centre ground moves, if majority political opinion moves.

That's funny. My take is that 90% of the vitriol and venom seems to be coming from Labour supporters (as is usual).

1) You don't vote "against" parties, you vote "for" a party.

By my calculations, it's actually 34,244 per Tory MP.

And it is just 25,972 votes per SNP MP.
