Well just back from casting my vote - not one of the main parties - however where i live has been tory for decades so with the fptp system effectively a wasted vote.



I disagree, evry vote for a minority party may give someone else more confidence to vote that way in the future.

Little acorns and all.

I saw that a few days ago , absolutely brilliant , future number 1.
I also found it amusing how the big brave security man tries to curtail freedom of speech with his scary angry face...pillock.

My feeling is Cameron will try to form a minority government but fail , we will eventually be left with an unstable government of convenience lead by Labour , I get the feeling we will have to vote again sooner rather than later.

I also have a feeling Farage will not win his seat and will step down as leader of Ukip , they will then fade away back into obscurity.

There is also the chance that Clegg will lose his seat which will keep me amused for days.

Will likely end up a unstable Con/Libdem/UKIP coalition.

Labour WONT win a majority nor will the Conservatives.

Labour wont be able t form a coalition without the SNP and that is apparently off the table. I dont like Milliband but I believe when he says he wont go into coalition with them.

That means the only ones able to form a government are the conservatives.

I have to say that bit on one of the live debates when the SNP ripped into Milliband about not wanting a collation government to kick out the torries was epic. Made poor wee eddie look like a right tool!

I agree, I think we are looking a restructured Conservative/libdem government.

I am not sure this is a bad thing as long as the Libdems learn from there mistake and go in hard as opposed to bowing down and agreeing to anything that would give them a chance of power.

A formal coalition is off the table but all Labour have to do is vote down the Tory Queens speech with the help of the SNP , they can then go on to form a minority government with whatever remains of the Lib Dems and vote by vote help from the SNP.

Only in my worst nightmares do I see Cameron remaining as PM .... Bye Bye posh guy.

I think that would be a disaster, especially if the economy took another big hit, say they do that and 2 years down the road Greece pulls of the EU and the whole of Europe spirals into a economic dip and we need to pass a tough budget. With out a majority getting it passed would be very difficult could lead to the premature dissolvement of government and then another general election, just when the country needs a strong government.

You beat me to it!

Until the UK population comes together to create a real alternative it's nobody's fault but our own that we keep electing the upper classes and then complain about it afterwards, we are in effect voting for what coulour tie we prefer.

Yeah but at least he's a posh guy who isn't afraid to stand up for what he believes in , I'm not a Miliband fan but am prepared to give him a chance over Bullingdon Dave and his crew.

The unknown variable is UKIP. I think they will get 4-8 Seats. Libdem will lose some seats too. Now the Conservatives will work with UKIP and Libdem and both party's will work with the conservatives but will Libdem and UKIP work with each other?

Ok you believe that.

Just dont come crying on here if he gets in and jumps into the nearest rothchilds bed.

And certainly dont come crying if he lets the Scottish SNP rape our country or if we are still tied to the EU when it collapses in a fiery debt fulled death.

I was under the impression that a CON/UKIP deal was ruled out?

Pesky politicians changing there minds.

As to llib dems and UKIP working together I do not feel that they would actually be able to do it.

No UKIP have stated they will work with the conservatives and the Conservatives just say they are aiming for a majority.

Clegg and Farage would rip each other apart.

I don't think anything is ruled out just yet, the results haven't been announced. I don't see any reason to rule anything out either.

So it's not all bad news then.

I can't see that happening though but you never know.

For some comic relief. Election wipe from last night. The Brands britain sketch is hilarious, the first 100 days after Russell Brands Revolution

Ok you believe that.

Yes I do , just look at the stance he's taken on Israel , his is one of the few dissenting voices in Parliament on Israeli actions in Gaza and the region.



Just dont come crying on here if he gets in and jumps into the nearest rothchilds bed

And Cameron isn't already in bed with the elite ? , I will wait and see but at least he isn't scared of the banks or have links to them as Cameron does.



And certainly dont come crying if he lets the Scottish SNP rape our country or if we still tied to the EU when it collapses in a fiery debt fulled death.

Doom Porn ... love it.

O how naive you are.

You just need to look at Millibands educational background.



and if you cant see the Eurozone crisis as more than doomporn? Well again naive.
