The UK has 650 MPs representing the four constituent countries of Wales, England, Scotland and N Ireland. I will use a 255 x 255 px square. This gives us 65,025 px which works out as a scale of 1 MP = 100 px. For consistancy I'll try and make the shapes as similar to how I did them for the population square so that they can be easily compared.
|Parliament (1 MP = 100 px)|
We'll add England first, or rather the MPs that represent English constituencies. All 533 of them, this works out as a 230 x 232 px square (53,130 px)
|English MPs v the rest (1 MP = 100 px)|
The domination of UK politics by English politicians can clearly be see already. Which is why the West Anglia Question is always answered in favour of England. But that isn't such a surprise since their population is almost six times greater than the rest of us combined. Adding Scotland's 59 MPs (255 x 23 = 5,865 px) gives us much the graphic as before.
|English / Scottish MPs the rest (1 MP = 100 px)|
|The MPs of the four UK countries (1 MP = 100 px)|
|London and the south east dwarfing the Celtic nations|
|As above but with the three Plaid MPs|
I thought of one more graphic. What better way could we show the imbalance than with a new flag for the UK. Except this flag has the flags of the UK nations sized according to how many MPs that nation has. And before anyone says anything, the occupied area of Ireland is represented by the St Patricks Cross and I've also included Kernow on there too because they get left out of everything. So here it is, quite possibly even worse than the current union rag.
