Having had a look at the Welsh results it's interesting that despite 27% of the vote (i consider less than 30% poor), we still have the most seats since 83. Having had a look at the Labour seats it interestingly looks like all the north eastern seats are winnable for the Tories if they could even get a 5% swing in Wales (the cluster of about 5 near Wrexham) however it's also interesting to see just how much the valleys hate us, i make only 2 winnable seats (Bridgend and one of the Newport seats) and in many we are not even second be it to Ukip or Plaid or the Lib Dems.

I'd be interested to know why despite being equally poor, the north eastern area is much more winnable unless things have improved there.
North East Wales is barely Wales at all culturally, plus there's resentment at the WAG focussing almost solely on the south.

of course the WAG will focus on the south, that's where the people who vote for them are.

Exactly. That's why they're unpopular north of the M4.

Don't your leaders tell you if you are in coalition?

I imagine they will, but I gather that there have been no coalition agreements yet.

Allegations of electoral fraud in Thanet South.
Apparently some ballot boxes were took eight hours to reach the place of county and people fear votes could have been changed, and some votes were not counted. I have not managed to find anything solid information yet but it could go to a re-run if it is true votes were missing and boxes could have been tampered with. The entire election was a shambles with postal voters not receiving their votes on time, candidate name snot being on the ballot papers, and people being turned away after administration errors.

With the seat distribution and minimum coalition requirement (not happy about that), it's clear that Labour have 2 options and the Tories only 1. In all likelyhood it will come down to whether GP culled the Orange Bookers or whether they will move from the shadows and once again deliver the party to their Tory overlords (i of course mean wonderful friends).

That said i'm not actually involved in this set of negotiations so for once it's pure speculation and there are other less likely options.

I think as well as finally getting bills out again, really can't wait!!! I can't wait for mp's to be announced but that's quite some time off isn't it
live got some people I want to be MP's and some I don't but we'll have to see.

Also so coalitions should be interesting, a grand coalition would be interesting but I can't see that one happening.

Parties can announce MP's when they like.

The Greens had their chance for a grand coalition last term but you cruelly rejected us and became ever more extremist. The interesting thing will be whether your too extreme for Labour.

Seemingly so, although if one has been agreed, I don't see why it could not be announced earlier than the deadline...
