    This is a poll about what you want for 2011.

    Has there ever been as much political disagreement as we had this year. Labour voted out but nobody voted in. A coalition government. Riots on the street. What will be the ONE issue that dominates everything next year.

    Do you have the signal in the noise?

    That the Libertarian Party actually make some decent ground

    failing that...a push for more liberal policies such as drug legalisation etc

    Coalition government ending and an election being called. Though I support Ed Miliband, I don't think he's quite ready for this and will need more time.

    It should be a fascinating year thought!

    That the governments crazy reforms are stopped-in particular free schools (stupid, stupid idea) and healthcare reforms, that it becomes far more progressive and that its economic plan works. I don't think that it will-but i hope to god it does...

    That all current political parties be disbanded and the country is run by either a Libertarian Government, or one that advocates Churchill and his policies. Either would suit me.

    You're one of those annoying people who holds no political views of their own, and subscribes to views that you think you should hold based on the stereotype you fashion yourself after. Something I've noticed.

    David Cameron and Nick Clegg step down as leader of their parties and people who you can actually trust and respect take leadership.

    Oh, and Mr. Milliband stops making claims that he'll support Middle Britain and does a complete u-turn and instead is honest about his parties intensions.

    Never said there was one... But honestly, i do believe they both make poor leaders. Nick with this whole tuition fees and his general uselessness and David for being a terrible, slimy example to anyone. Gordon wasn't any better, but atleast he made a good back bench boy. Neither of these two should be leading ANY political party.

    I'm conservative btw, so I'm not being a bias for Gordon or anything, I think Labour shouldn't even be running their current campaign for "Middle Britain" as it's a crock of lies.

    The word "radical" is derived from the Latin root "rad," which actually means "root." Radicalism is not a measurement of degree of ideological fanaticism, to the right or the left; rather, it describes a style of approach to social problems. The radical, literally speaking, is someone who seeks out the root of a problem so that they may strike at it for a solution.

    80% of Sudan's oil is located in Southern Sudan, so yes, a civil war is imminent.
