    British General Election announced May 5th, predictions and thoughts?

    with the general election newly announced what are everyones thoughts and predictions, personally i believe it will be a very close result, much closer than people predict. i sincerely hope that labour are re-elected as the tories do not have a clue as to managing the economy and some of their ideas for policies and suchlike are ridiculous (e.g. off shore detention centres) i am in no way a labour supporter, they are just the most suitable option at this moment in time, the lib dems are not yet ready imo, labour are the best of the bad bunch, and i dont bear to think what happened if they dont stay in office.

    I can vote next time around too... Lib Dem for me, as Labour and the Tories are both clueless IMO, and there's only one way to find out what Lib Dem are like...

    Law and order is the biggest issue from my point of view.. I fear an explosion in youth crime/drunken violence if the status quo is maintained.

    Suggestions on the way to go with that?

    i agree it is an issue that raises great concern, and needs to be dealt with.

    Labour will retain a pretty sizable majority, reduced certainly, but still close to 3 figures if not actually there.

    I'm seriously considering voting Lib Dem for the first time ever in a General. My constituency (South East Cambridgeshire) has a Tory majority of roughly 13,000 with Labour & Lib Dems broadly neck-and-neck for second so I'd always voted Labour as the tactical angle never really applied.

    Now tho I think there are pretty solid socialist reasons to support Charlie K's lot. They're certainly the only major party to have seriously addressed the issue of an increase in tax to pay for our rapidly ailing public services.

    I wonder if Howard will survive an ar$e-whupping?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Certainly the latest polls showed a much reduced Labour lead

    My constituancy (Taunton Deane) pretty much has no labour to speak of whatsoever.. So its a choice between Conservative and Lib Dems for me.. I have a feeling the Conservatives are going to walk it here because of the pro hunting section..

    What I'm interested in is how the Conservatives reckon they'll pull this off:
    * Increase public spending
    * Decrease taxes
    * Reduce government debt

    The only way I can think of is printing money!
