STV is tough because the preference deals add a layer of complexity. But, under the assumption that voting would have been the same, this is a neat tool:

Money quotes here. Core point = the PR "wave" came after the "governability" problems, not before.

It's the behavior, not the institutions. Gotta read about the pan-western "obstruction crisis." Most of it predates PR.
