IMHO this election will all be about nothing really.

People will vote Labour as they are fed up with the cuts in services etc. People will vote UKIP for various reasons but will result in a Labour government in coalition with the SNP who should not be allowed to sit in Westminster as they should not have a vote on things affecting England in the same way that we cannot vote on things affecting Scotland.
The resulting ar$efec will mean higher taxes and unemployment for us all meaning in 5 years time everyone will be voting Conservative again to get Millibland out of office.

I predict a Con/ukip coalition I think there are more people who will be voting ukip than the poles suggest.

Personally I think that the theory/solution proposed in a Terry Pratchett book is right. Anyone wanting to stand for election should be automatically disqualified.

I woldnt predict them getting a coalition but i think youre right about the polls being wrong....i mean who actually does these polls...ive never ever been asked or completed a poll....plus i think they are manipulated to make people think it isnt worthwhile voting a particular party.


Imo its the folk that usually dont vote that'll come outta the woodwork to vote ukip....i mean if theyve never voted before then why would they suddenly vot con or labour now....what has changed is the increase of ukip.......ok while they aren't exactly the holy grail it is much like what happened in scotland whereby normal people could associate themselves with the political process & look what almost appened then.

I am paying higher taxes thanks to the condems , its called the umbrella tax , and extra VAT , the difference between labour and conservative is that under labour my taxes fund the unfortunate , under the conservatives my taxes fund the fortunate , IMO i think labour will try to form a minority government , which will fail , and another election before the year is out .
IMHO this election will all be about nothing really.

People will vote Labour as they are fed up with the cuts in services etc. People will vote UKIP for various reasons but will result in a Labour government in coalition with the SNP who should not be allowed to sit in Westminster as they should not have a vote on things affecting England in the same way that we cannot vote on things affecting Scotland.

If only we could. Wasn't there a ballot about that not too many years ago and it got rejected? Maybe with the rise of the smaller parties people might change their minds and want PR. Mined ewe having seen that UKIP idiot talking about shooting the other candidate and how his father came over here to sponge off the government, there is a case for no PR too.

PR with one MP would not get you a chair round the table in Number 10.

Shame really as if FUKP win their seat it would be quite funny seeing Al Murray going in and out of #10

so whats the point of exit poles ive never seen one -where are they held,as that is going to influence the results, do they do it like the tv ratings so its only based on 100 people and then extrapolated

Another prediction --Labour will loose - ed will resign - his bro will come back from exile to rule and will win the next one.He knew dam well that labour would not win straight back in and let his bro have the leadership to then fail

Because the Tories and Labour don't want it!

That's why the referendum on the Alternative Vote failed last time around, Labour wouldn't back it and the scummy Tories had their rich mates put out posters like "Vote No to AV or the Baby Dies"

Both of these parties know that if we actually had a representative voting system they'd not get into power based on the "Buggins Turn" principle that we get fed up with one of them, so the other lot get in, but then we get fed up with them...

The last thing either of them want is for us to find out that there's a better way of doing things that doesn't involve them!

Interesting predictions... most of which turned out a little far off the mark though I certainly didn't expect the Conservatives to get the lead they have (I did vote for them though... half expecting to be lynched by a foccer mob now...)

Proportional representation. How would that really work.

650 seats in Westminster. only 66% of voters turned out so 221 seats need to remain vacant.
At the moment, Conservatives have around 37% of the total vote so they can have 158 seats. Now the hard part. 321 (at the moment) MP's squeezing into 158 seats. who decides which muppet gets a seat?
Even more interesting, the Greens got about 4% of the overall votes but only one MP. Using PR they should get 17 seats in Westminster. Who decides which 16 un-elected people get a say in government?

to quote a Beatles line...................."I can't believe the news today"

either a massive stitch up has occurred or the country is full of knob heads (not directed at the true blues on here)

on the basis that's there's more lower paid/less well off than rich people and that the whole of the public sector are being done over by the tories (NHS/teachers/civil servants/emergency workers etc etc) then how the foc did they get in.......I'm not a fan of Milliband but I thought it was a done deal for Labour. A lot of people have been caught stone cold today

as I write, the tories have 323 seats and I think you need 326 otherwise its a coalition of some sort (I suspect all the votes are in now) so if that is the case, then who's going in with Cameron?

I'm worried for the country I really am. to quote another line from another group......."I predict a riot"...............watch this space
