    because first-past-the-post.

    if 5 parties get 17% each, and the 6th gets 18 % of the votes, the latter gets to govern.

    Where I live, governing requires a majority(-coalition). If 5 parties get 17 % each, any 3 of them can govern.

    We now have 14 or 15 parties in parlement. Sometimes a party with 1-3 seats can make the difference

    Corporations own the news.  The government lets them.
