    Well yeah it might, but the bigger one would be labour or tories, not the lib dems - so I would hardly call that the lib dems winning.

    I think the lib dems would call being in coalition a win :P

    especially since one of them would occupy No11

    Well UKIP would call gaining Buckingham a win, but it doesn't mean they should be voted for ahead of labour/tories in this poll. :p:

    Currently it looks pretty likely the conservatives will win, although i dont particularly want this.
    A hung parliament would be a really interesting situation...

    Well I haven't read their entire manifesto lol But their plans to reform the benefit system is good!
    And I'm sure they want a cap on immigration, which is what I think everyone wants.

    I'm no expert, I mainly just go by what I hear on the news and stuff lol

    But like I said, I'd be happy for anyone but Brown

    Yeah their move to increase the retirement age sooner is good. The rest of the benefit system stuff is exactly the same as Labour.

    errrmmmm I've not heard of that...

    Everyone wanted Major out (more so than they currently want Brown out), doesn't make the alternative 'better'.

    Nah I guess you're right. I think people are just sick of politicians in general and it wouldn't surprise me if one of the less mainstream parties got in...purely on a protest vote by the public.

    And in relation to the Tory benefit reform, I was under the impression they were wanting to change to way in which people qualified? Meaning that more people could actually work, and less people were able to claim? That may be old...but I'm sure I read/heard that somewhere

    You're right, but people have been saying that since the 80s and it has changed in that direction (bit for a step change with the new deal for instance) and have been expanded on in the Welfare to Work bill. The Tories didn't say anything in concrete.

    Not that it would have mattered even if they had. It's my understanding that most politicians aren't big on honesty or keeping promises.

    Clearly a thread to stir up controversy as you've included BNP alongside the three main parties and no other minority parties...
