Good luck but the wind appears to have shifted.

I wish that folks abroad would respect the political process in America. I do not see hysterical headlines in the USA about one side or another in your elections.

It would be nice if the people who run the Guardian would show the American citizenry about 1/10 of the respect that they do for Hugo Chavez.

One of the sites I regularly read is Harry's Place. I am astonished
at the combination of arrogance and genuine ignorance at some of the so called America experts there. Sorry, but one does not gain
any genuine insight by reading the New York Times, Huffington Post and an occasional visit to NYC.

The people of the UK with rare exception are grown adults capable
of making rational choices about who their leaders should be. It would be nice if the folks in the UK would show similar courtesy to the American people.

Jams, I endorse this post BUT I may vote tactically to ensure the Tories don't win in my seat.

I've been pessimistic at my place.

YOu could if you wanted to Beak...


Do what you think best Calum. I am not enthralled at Thatcher's bastard son as PM, no matter how fluffy he comes over.

It willb e pork for the few., The rest of us will be porked

Astounding - after all you know, all that's been written.

Not astounding at all. At the very end it is the least worst choice

what about liberal dems, or green party?

surely there must be an alternative....

It is exactly the thought of "lesser of the two evils" is where it got us here... it's the same story in the US....

I am tired of 2 party system....

THe Greens have no chance of making inroads in this system. The lib De,s may well hold the balance. However, the leader appears more pro Tory. Labour for all its faults has done a lot of genuine good, minumum wage and many other things.

THe Tories will feather the nest of their friends. Public services will be screwed.

I'll be giving my support for proportionate democracy again with the Lib Dems. One day... one day... real democracy will finally reach this ancient land; and then I can turn my attention to what I really want to vote for. But it will never be for The Blues, that's for sure (unless Alzheimer's sets in).

I've always been in favour of PR myself. perhaps the prospect of a coalition this will bring that about. I won't hold my breath though
