"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Via Kos, check out this interactive Flash map of the UK's parliamentary districts and their current representation in the House of Commons.

Take a look at England proper (as in, not Scotland Wales or N Ireland, which have a number of regional parties that muck up the comparison). In England, for the most part you see the very same political map that you find in America: the left party (Labour) dominates the more urban areas, while the right party (Conservative, or Tory), dominates everywhere else. Just like on all those "Bush Country" shirts that NewsMax and their ilk were selling to missing-teeth-Americans back in 2001. Something tells me, though, that the Tories aren't about to start selling "Howard Country" shirts.

Also at Kos, this poll is pretty funny.
