  United Kingdom general election, 2001 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The UK general election, 2001 was held on 7 June 2001 and was dubbed "the quiet landslide" by the media.
The elections were also marked by apathy from the voting public, turnout being only 59%, the lowest since 1918.
Throughout the election the Labour party had maintained a significant lead in the opinion polls and the result was deemed to be so certain that some bookmakers paid out for a Labour majority before the election day.

 Japan general election, 2003 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The last general election of the Lower House took place in June 2000 when Yoshiro Mori was Prime Minister.
Poll data collected early in the election season and in exit polls highlight the role of swing voters, who accounted for 18% of the total vote.
During the campaign, the DPJ produced an itemized policy manifesto — a first in post-war Japanese elections — and publicized a "shadow cabinet" (with Naoto Kan as Prime Minister), which is usually created by political parties during election season in the United Kingdom, for example.

 UK general election, 2001 Information - TextSheet.com
The United Kingdom general election of 2001 has been called in the media "the quiet landslide." After a landslide victory of the Labour party in the previous 1997 elections, they now had another major victory by managing to maintain their position.
Outside Northern Ireland (which mostly has different parties bar and a different electoral landscape from the rest of the UK although a few UK wide parties stand with minimal success), 620 out of 641 seats remained with the same party as they had been in 1997.
In Northern Ireland, the election was far more dramatic marked a move away from the Good Friday Agreement, with the moderate Protestant and Catholic parties (UUP and SDLP) losing and the more extreme nationalist parties (DUP and Sinn Féin) winning.

 UK General Election 2001: Results and statistics
General Election, 7th June 2001: The final number of seats won by the parties was:
The problem has been that the two sources disagree on many of the constituency electorate figures, to an extent that probably cannot be explained by simple typographical errors.
The Electoral Commission tells me that it wrote to Acting Returning Officers requesting electorate figures in May. Updates to the February electoral register on the basis of 'rolling registration' ceased on 22nd May (the deadline for nominations), and so it is likely that the Electoral Commission figures are correct if all AROs replied after 22nd.

 Paper 3 - Issue 1
However, in the UK at least, there is high membership of single issue groups, which often have a political dimension, such as those concerned with the environment, animal rights, Third World debt relief and anti-globalisation (Cabinet Office 2002; Demos 2002).
UK citizens are not therefore apathetic about all political issues, but appear to be alienated from the formal political institutions and the current democratic process, and concerned that their voices are not being heard or their views properly represented.
Many election candidates are likely to be from a generation that has not grown up with computers and ICTs, and may not feel comfortable with their use.

David Butler's is still a strong and influential voice in the interpretation of UK elections, but he has many 'competitors' (in the best sense of that term).
A year after the election was held, we have several books providing instant interpretations -- alongside a second group by political commentators and journalists not reviewed here -- but then interest wanes.
Of course, major books have emerged from the British Election Survey -- Butler and Stokes' (1969, 1974) pioneering volumes, Särlvik and Crewe's (1983) synthesis of a decade of change, and several from the CREST team (Heath, Jowell and Curtice, 1985, 2001; Heath et al., 1987; Evans and Norris, 1999).
