When 40% of the electorate don't vote, the argument that the will of the people isn't represented by FPTP goes out the window. No one here can say that the 40% that didn't vote would have voted one way or the other. PR could end up just as scewed as FPTP if a significant number of those that didn't vote lean one way or the other.

Elections are not about "fairness". They are about winning. It's a competition. For 308 seats. You win the most seats, you form a government. Each party has the opportunity to win the most seats. Do do this you have to organize, establish a base, get out your message and get out your vote.

Thats it.
