And who is Cobi Budge going to settle on and vote for considering he can only pick one and not edge his bets as he does on here and twitter.

My prediction is for a hung parliament i just dont see any party winning this election out right.

Hard to get that excited. Even if we do manage to boot the tories out, we just get Nu Labour, who are Tory-lite.

Interesting comparison of the main parties on the 'Political Compass' website, which has compared all the parties manifestos and plotted where they stand on a chart. Basically Labour, Conservatives, Lib Dems and UKIP all reside in the same small space on the chart - shows you that the 'choice' we get is only a very limited one. It also explains why some people (and some politicians) can flip between parties at the drop of a hat - there is actually very little between them in terms of political stance.

Same as this Saturday's game against those east D'bn slack-jawed, mono-celled, joined eyebrowed, frog-eyed, hillbillies.

Feet up, smoke a cigar the size of a traffic cone and listen to Credence Clearwater Revival, and basically, not give a fuuk.

Vote for none of the above, because we're fuucked what ever way you look at it.

Rule Britannia -oh for the days of merry old England.

Very true and shows why young people are so disinterested in politics.

I think the Tories will be the biggest party, but won't be able to form a coalition. Labour/Lib Dem minority government with unofficial SNP support.

The one thing I'm dreading is another election - it could easily happen.

That. Torys will 'win' but wont have enough to form a majority govt. Expect they'll either govern as a minority as I can't see Lib/Lab getting enough seats either. Its all really depressing.

Were you still up for Portillo?

I hope to up for Clegg this time around.

If ever a scumbag had it coming then it's him.

I've got a mate of mine who is pretty intelligent yet recently he told me that the thought of Labour getting into power terrifies him. My mother would vote Tory if they told her they were going to confiscate her home if they got in, a lot of people vote through habit.

It would be entertaining. Unfortunately he's still odds-on to keep his seat according to Oddschecker.

It does look as though they'll be totally wiped out in Scotland, though.

Nigey is shorter odds than Clegg.

I don't think speculation serves much purpose at the moment, twixt now and May7th one party will get on a roll with the Big Mo, tbh the only parties likely to achieve this are the Kip of course if Nigey can land a sucker punch, or the Greenies if that dozy, gobshite, Aussie bint can do a couple or three interviews without being a complete 'tard.

The furore over the debates is hard to call, the lefties are running around having one off the wrist but I am not at all convinced the public at large will like some over paid, knob jockey, tv, execs trying to set the agenda, this is after all the fecking Prime Minister we are talking about and it is quite obvious the tv companies couldn't give a flying about the democratic process, they just want some cheap, prime time viewing matter.

The smart money would probably go for a Labour minority supported by the LimpDims and Wee Eck's Sweaties. Me, I think that would be the death knell for Labour in England with a landslide in 2020 for however managed to gain the high ground, perhaps a union of Cons and Kips under a Boris and Nigey partnership, as horrible a thought as that might be, not to mention unlikely as Boris is on a huge bung from his pro EU corporate buddies, it Shirley couldn't be worse than Wallace?

The sheer paucity of choice is stultifying.

Beyond the fact that much of that is factually incorrect nearly all of it and more could just as easily be laid at the door of the last Labour administration, pus they did start a couple or three wars where thousands of innocent people have died.

Yeah it's far too generalised. With things like 'benefit cuts' then it's not so simple as that is it, because actually it goes into much finer details. It's such horrendous Labour propaganda and if there's one man who I'm praying isn't in Downing Street come May it's Ed Miliband with Nicola Sturgeon in his arms.

That happens and the country is 100% completely fecked. Ruined. I'll emigrate if it happens.

The idea that Labour will actually get us going in anything like the right direction simply baffles me.

Very true Tring, it's gone full circle now from workers demanding and getting modest living standards and not being treated like swine, Maggie broke the unions and we now need them back, it's not good for the general public to either have the country run entirely by the union bosses or their employers. Lucky to have a club to support, a job that doesn't pay enough for a decent standard of living, weare just so lucky.

Talking of giving with one hand (although I havent seen any money coming my way)

Massive cuts to police and our council tax will go up to pay for them FFS! Still no caps on farrm subsidies, taxing the super rich, bonuses still paid to bankers, all in it together.

It's alright for most of you lot, you'll be dead soon!

Disco Mocko has ter live the majority of my fookin life watching the Tories promote a raw deal for most, whilst Labour have completely abandoned any pretense of anything meaningful. Although I am left, I don't want Labour to win unless they do it by sticking to their roots. If they win and are Tory-lite, then what is the fookin point? If Miliband denounced the Iraq war (even "in hindsight"), nationalised the railways/utilities, abandoned this austerity nonsense and clamped down on corporate scale tax avoidance, I'd be all over Labour. He won't, though. Which is why I'll probably go Green unless anyone local sticks their head evidently above the rest. Not that the greens have the answers - I'm not sure they even know what the question is...but their intentions are more or less in line with what I'd want. Waste of a vote? It would be if there was anything else out there.

It's not hard to call. The guy who wants to lead our country, and who might have to 'face off' against Putin in years to come, is running from a debate against Ed f**king Milibean. The Tory press is desparately trying to spin this as the broadcasters fault, but only the terminally dim are going to buy that. Even the terminally unpopular Gordon Brown was man enough to enter the debates last time round without making any fuss.

Hilariously the Tories delaying tactic of demanding the Greens are involved is probably going to back fire. The new Green leader can barely string a sentence together, even Milibean will probably come out of a debate looking better than her.
