Your silly plurality electoral system really needs to change. It's undemocratic and outdated.

Don't be silly. It goes with the parties.

The Lib Dems could make electoral reformation a condition for working with Labour.

The Liberal Democrats seem to be getting stronger as a candidate for the win every day. Didn't see it coming.

The cat has been put among the pidgeons today thanks to Gordon Brown saying a woman he'd just been talking to was 'bigoted'. She did say "You can't say anything about the immigrants - all these Eastern Europeans were flocking in." Which is borderline bigoted if you ask me. The fact that she might have been bigotted or that it was understandable Brown might interpret what she said is of scant regard to the media who are reporting it like he's just gone up to her outta the blue and told her she's a bitch! The strange thing is she was a labour voter and didn't say she wouldn't vote for him again and was even complimentary about some of the things he'd done. She did say she liked tony blair though which must have been like a red rag to a bull to him.

Well, Labour won't win, for the simple fact that they have been in power for so long. The Liberal Dems will do surprisingly well in terms of the popular vote, but they won't get too many more representatives in parliament. So, that leaves the Conservatives, whom should turn out to be a good partner for the USA.

Regarding hopes and wishes; if I could, I'd have Nick Griffin be the next Prime Minister

I just seen that. Hilarious!

Where's Malcolm Tucker when you need him?

Cameron's campaign through the night so hopefully he'll get so tired he'll say something stupid and blow it.
