    Default Conservatives to get overall majority

    Surely this is not a good thing to have this guy and his party governing alone with no opposition in government to rein him in and will carry on with his austerity plans.

    Unlike many European countries (including Ireland), the United Kingdom does not have much experience, and does not function well with coalitions. The “first-past-the-post” system as opposed to some of the many forms of proportional representation, also makes single party rule more suitable.
    “Austerity” is controversial, it can be argued you have to spend to stimulate the economy, the so-called “priming the pump” [Keynesian economics] but spending money you do not have, increasing debt, also has its risks.

    David Cameron has seen off the risk of UKIP taking some of his votes (most UKIP votes appear to be at the cost to Labour) and the problem of Conservative eurosceptics, by promising a referendum on EU membership. This could be now a problem.

    David Cameron is a cunt. And that is the nice way of saying it.
    Death comes to all of us, sometimes sooner than we expect.

    Don't live your day like it is your last, but live it like it is your first.
    New, exciting and fun

    Meanwhile, not unexpectedly, Ed Miliband is expected to fall on his sword. Speech expected at noon.
    Nick Clegg wont be far behind.

    As in all things, personalities matter. And David Cameron does come across as aloof and arrogant, the product of the British Public School system.

    But to more important political matters.
    Paddy Ashdown said, ‘I’ll eat my hat if the exit polls are right’.
    The exit polls were right. The nation awaits.

    He is former member of the British special forces, so he has probably eaten worse things during his survival training

    It never is but one thing though. Didnt he promise a referendum on the EU membership if reelected?

    that would be interesting,

    Nigel Farage would be such a better option.
