Is it only me who finds something strange about the following sequence of events?
3 February 1931 The Prime Minister (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald) (right):
Then we come to the point made by the right hon. Member for Chelsea (Sir S. Hoare) yesterday. He said that in the case of candidates A, B and C, that when C is eliminated and his second votes are added to the first votes of A [...]
