Why I'm in favour of Proportional Representation

According to the BBC, the current polls show Lib Dems on 33%, Conservatives on 32%, Labour on 26%.
Which would give a seat allocation of Conservatives: 246, Labour 241, Lib Dems: 134.
Or, in a more easily digestible table format:
Party Percentage Seats
Lib Dems 33% 134
Conservatives 32% 246
Labour 26% 241

It should be pretty fucking obvious that this is an electoral system that is fucked in the head.
