I have a feeling the UK is experiencing the feeling a lot of people in the US felt back in November 2004, or the people of Canada have been systematically feeling since 2005.

Would describe it as genuine fear of the damage they are going to do. More cuts and more austerity. We already know what the policies are, £12bn of cuts to welfare, that is going to really hurt people. I feel so bad for the vulnerable.

Dunno how people who voted Tory can sleep at night knowing they've just consigned millions of people to doom.

At the end of the day most UK citizens voted logically.

Fringe parties like the Greens and UKIP always get a lot of press because their supporters are quite vocal about their causes, but the average UK citizen is to busy working to follow politics, they just want a good economy & good paying jobs.

So the UK public chose to dump the liberal party (Labour light) in favor of the tories, not UKIP or Green, except in Scotland where they dumped labour for nationalism, the real threat to the unity of the UK.

If Cameron is smart he'll reform immigration and permanently nullify the threat of UKIP, and if it all possible, try to make unionist inroads in Scottland.

As for labour, Millaband was a weak leader as the results in Scottland show. Like him or hate him it may have been a different outcome with someone like Tony Blair.

I remember reading a lot about how "American" this campaign was (due mostly to the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, but also due to the influx of American strategists like Axelrod and Messina), and it strikes me as sort of interesting that in 1992, Kinnock ran what people saw as a very "American" campaign and he also lost by a solid margin in an election Labour could've won.
