    1) UKIP will retain and upgrade trident. it is my opinion that we should only scrape our nuclear arson when there is a agreement between ALL Nuclear to get rid of such weapons
    What is "nuclear arson" and how does one scrape it?

    Opinion Polling Update (02-05/11)
    Conservatives - 34%
    Labour - 38%
    Liberal Democrats - 10%
    UKIP - 9%
    Greens - 5%
    Others - 5%

    Translating this to the MHoC:
    Conservatives - 17
    Labour - 18
    Liberals - 5
    Socialists - 5
    UKIP - 4
    Independent - 1 (probs JD)

    (The 'other' seats have been distributed in a totally legit way, 2 to the Socialists and 1 to an independent)

    Interesting... I think we could see both Labour and Conservatives making gains with Labour just edging ahead.

    How are you getting those seat totals? With those vote shares Labour should be on 19 and Ukip should be on 5.

    (I will be very surprised if this is actually what happens fwiw, 18/19 seats is unheard of)

    Those are just rounded percentages. I worked it out by (labour vote/total votes)*50 which got them 18

    It won't happen, due to the numerous flaws with the poll. But it's nevertheless still intriguing. Especially with the Liberals losing ground.

    Ahh, ok.

    It's certainly very interesting that Labour's lead is only 3/4% given the demographics of this website. An indication of how deep the **** they're in is, perhaps.

    Ukip being less relevant and a lefty party not standing one would expect both to gain

    Tbh I think the lead will be even smaller in the real thing/non-existent. Labour usually suffer post-verification.

    True, although I'd expect the Liberals to profit too - not the other way around.

    Tories got 19 seats in the 10th parliament on 32% of the vote. Socialists also pipped Labour to second with 10 seats.

    So the question is whether Labour are as unpopular as they were in 2009.

    Tbh saying the Liberals are not the Liberal Democrats makes it even more appealing to a student forum
    Orange conservatives probably doesn't though.

    My usual opinion of the manifesto's..

    Labour - I'd like to comment on much of your manifesto but to be honest the font size of the top half side bits is barely readable without the zoom function on the keyboard. Perhaps you have done yourself a disservice there.
    - Nothing too objectionable in terms of policy but much like Jammy it's relatively vague and indeed many of those policies are things which we Tories already did and intend to go further on. Your answer to many things however is simply to create a panel and wash your hands of it, no specifics on their aim or direction.
    - Was also not a fan of bringing RL into it twice, poor showing there
    8/10 (largely because of design rather than content)

    Manifesto of the election goes to Labour who narrowly beat the socialists. I gave it to them because i can't give it to the Tories without being biased but mainly because although the Socialists have the best leaflet manifesto (the format of the rest of the parties), i thought the Labour design was very innovative as it could have easily been the front page of the Times with a bit less colour.

    I could be a bit biased against the Socialists though, the open intent to commit treason was enraging and frankly i'd have them arrested.
    It was not our intention to bring IRL in it once, bar the reference to Brexit where it is impossible to explain the Canon Amendment during the election. What's the other RL reference?

    I agree that the policies are vague, but that's an issue of word count - our plans are detailed.

    PS. Amazing that you rate the Soc one higher than I do. 9/10?

    RL Labour is bloody unpopular atm and that is a tragedy. And our manifesto consciously evokes a more modern, less Corbyn-esque feel to what we might have otherwise written. However I suspect that Labour is more popular with students now than it was in 2009, even if that's not reflected in the demographics as a whole.

    Different is goid basically goes against what ukip stands for
    Haha you know what I mean. They want to remove some newer policies, and that in essence is different.

    PS: I don't agree with everything everyone from UKIP says, either, but they're still the best in my opinion.
