While you can't entirely compare it (as some people would have probably voted differently under a different system) it still gives an indication.

My guess is if the UK had a proportional system some of the smaller parties (e.g. Greens) would have more seats (as people currently don't vote for them as in most places it's a wasted vote) while most of the larger parties (Tories, Labour and also the SNP) would have fewer seats, in some cases significantly.

Helps when you can vote for someone you believe in rather than someone who's the least worst of a bad bunch
Fully agree. Unfortunately I don't see that happening any time soon. In particular the Tories and now to a lesser extent Labour stand too lose too much power by moving to proportional representation, so I don't see them supporting that for the foreseeable future.
