The Speaker is not a Party, the Speaker is a person who generally runs unchallenged from other major parties having formally given up association with the prior political party. He runs as an Independent, so if you're including Independents in a separate section then the distinction doesn't make sense.

Also not sure about the inclusion of the parties who won 0 seats. There are many parties across the UK who ran for election unsuccessfully, why the inclusion of just three? For purposes of consistency, it makes sense to include all or none.

Thanks for taking the time to make the quiz though!

donr understand the inclusion criteria...e.g. why include BNP? This is not an exhaustive list of all who stood so why include BNP and UKIP with their big fat zeros

There are only 18 seats in Northern Ireland, I fear you may have significantly overstated the electoral successes of the Democratic Unionist Party
