>>61064409 Because they only won a single constituency. Every other party has areas that vote for them consistently with only a few constituencies actually changing their vote every election (i.e. swing-states).
Here in Sheepistan, my constituency overwhelmingly votes for the Labour Party every election, for example. UKIP didn't get any seats because their votes are spread out over the whole country, and not concentrated enough to actually win constituancies.
As a result, parties that got far fewer votes overall ended up with more influence than UKIP, just because that party's voters are all from the same place. UKIP got the third most votes in the election, only behind the Conservatives and Labour, but because of gerrymandering and the lack of proportional representation, they only got a single seat.
