    The GE hustings start today.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 30 Mar 2015, 1:14 pm

    The 2015 general election campaign is officially under way - what can we expect from the next four weeks?

    The basics

    The UK goes to the polls on Thursday, 7 May

    Voting takes place in all 650 Parliamentary constituencies
    The closest contest in decades with Labour and the Conservatives neck-and-neck in the opinion polls

    Local elections are scheduled to take place on the same day across most of England

    The deadline for registering to vote is Monday, 20 April

    See the full BBC News article HERE

    About registration:

    Remember that the rules for registering to vote have changed !

    NOW, every individual person who qualifies to vote MUST register themselves as registering as a family-member is no longer legal.

    Thanks for the info' mate but I bet that by the time we actually get to lay our crosses we will be pig-sick of these tricksters.

    May the 7th cannot come quick enough for me.

    The seven-way debate.....Who won ?

    Post by papa_umau on Fri 03 Apr 2015, 11:47 am

    Who won the Leaders' Debate? Here's the data to tell us...

    Cameron and Miliband - it's a tie
    ICM also asked viewers of the leaders' debate who they thought had performed better between Cameron and Miliband. The public were split 50%.

    Our own Mirror/Survation poll also found the two main party leaders drawing: Cameron and Miliband were favourites with a quarter of viewers, closely followed by Farage.

    David Cameron - 25%

    Ed Miliband - 25%

    Nigel Farage - 24%

    Nicola Sturgeon - 15%

    Nick Clegg - 6%

    Natalie Bennett - 3%

    Leanne Wood - 2%

    These two polls reflect the nationwide polls which have put Labour and the Conservatives neck and neck for a while now.

    Here's the result in full from The Daily Record HERE




    Well, that's the result from The Record/Mirror group.

    What do you think ?

    I don't believe that Farage is going to get that many seats and if he doesn't we may see Nicola Sturgeon moving into third place.

    This generates a possibility of many surprises on polling day.

    I think that it is great that the SNP are in fourth-place above all of the rest of the political parties in Britain.

    Something tells me that Nicola Sturgeon and her SNP candidate members will win more Westminster parliamentary seats than Farage and his mob will.

    If the SNP does get as many members in as the polls suggest then they will have the controlling number of seats for any other party that wants to form a government.
