I'm being optimistic and saying 5, if Nige is offered the chance I don't think we'll say no.
Nige might want to but look at it from the Tory position.. why go into coalition with a 5 seat party that may betray you as soon as the people vote in.

Who says you need to be a skeptic, it'd just be nice to have the choice
Well, seeing as the Tories are planning a referendum, I'm happy as I am

I wouldn't be too sure on that.
I would, I used to think he was surefire but having been there and seeing all the polls which show him second at best he won't be an MP.

id rather do the right thing and be poor then give in to greed and take the easy way out... Plus there is no way of knowing what'll happen.
I still believe that economics should be the prime concern of the government before morals.

No, that leads to the rich being treated like gods and becoming untouchable. Morals and doing the right thing is always the most important thing.

You have to admit that his questions have been harder to answer. We're back to the easier principle stuff now; hence he is doing better.
You might consider me biased but in my view the audience have been pretty fair on both of them. It was primarily his replies that knocked him down initially. He did however give some definitive and admirable answers on occasions towards the end (especially on the coalition plans) that recovered his half hour.

"All the polls" is a gross misrepresentation.

I've been there too and once again I'd disagree. The polls are changing daily, marginal seats are called that for a reason and this GE is exceptionally close.

I'd see it from an opposite and invite UKIP as a way of ensuring they won't be awkward and bolster the opposition.

I don't know which bits I was just there on an action day :L

There's dislike for Andrew Smith in Oxford, doesn't mean he didn't get a 4500 person majority in 2010...

I don't think it was the pro Tory death trap the Paxman interviews were but "Why are there more people at foodbanks" is easier to answer than "Do you accept you overspent in the years 1997-2010". Historians will be debating the letter for years I'm sure.

Yes. He's the best statesman on the programme tonight by some margin. It would be a crying shame if he loses his seat.

Well like I said having been to sandwich and broadstairs there is a lot of anti-UKIP there.

FPTP...

In an ideal world, we would revert to the old course and have a minimal government that had little purpose other than in balancing the books and upholding the rule of law. In the ideal world, it would be the duty of the rich to look after the poor. One nation conservatism will always be the way forward in my mind, and this can be achieved by providing financial incentives for the rich, i.e tax breaks, for providing properly for employees. This leads to increased profits, increased profits - business growth. Business growth - more jobs. More jobs - less people on benefits - less expenditure on benefits, which can result in government retrenchment.

Agreed. He seems the most human and down to earth.
