    Due to a bug regarding users with negative rep you need to PM your decision to Metrobeans who will then sort it out.

    Same comment to the Conservatives applies too, really, no?

    Certainly I'd rate Labour's chances higher than Conservatives, based purely on the association with real life parties - which I think is an unfair electoral quirk, mind. I'd still say they'll be the top 2 parties clearly though.

    I'm fairly sure Labour will be larger, considering the amount of our vote that has gone to them (which I find annoying, because people think we're just the same as the RL Lib Dems - which we aren't, and because they hate the tuition fees rise - which we oppose). But yeah, probably Lab, Con, Lib then hard to tell beyond that.

    I;d go with Lab then Con, then more difficult to tell. I would go for third between Lib and Socialists, then I think we'll come in behind you two but before Centre who will finish ahead of UKIP.

    Centre did disproportionately well because of a standout manifesto - I've noticed a lot more Socialists on the board, especially in D&CA and Lib Dem support has collapsed in RL.

    I really do wonder if most voters actually read the manifestos. I hope they do, and make informed choices, but I would imagine some don't.

    Hmm, I'd be surprised if Socialists came third, although I suppose it is possible with the factors you outlined. Time will tell.

    Either way, this has been a very interesting election (for both the wrong and the right reasons).

    (Also: VOTE LIB DEM! )

    While the exit pole may be well off, i looked at it earlier and it showed the TSR Socialist winning, Conservatives 2nd and Labour 3rd.

    Representative or not, that is concerning because the Socialists may be sneeking up the middle in TSR politics and as such have the potential to cause embarasment for us.

    Hah. We always do better in the exit poll than we do in the final result.

    I think that Lab/Con will get a similar amount of seats. There is considerable conservative support on TSR.

    I think that Soc/LD will also get a similar amount; I also think that Liber/Cen will get a similar amount.

    UKIP will get the least but not miles away I wouldn't think.

    It's unfortunate as we do have lots of highly active members who want to become MPs and get involved with that side of things.

    TBH I will be pretty surprised if Soc's get more seats than the Lib Dems do.

    Who?

    Why do they not post and why have we not seen many bills?

    TSR UKIP has many Bills on the go, at the moment, as with the rest of us, they are not able to dedicate as much time as they would like to. One of the reasons, and I have said this before, is that, if you're an MP, it's great, but it's harder to get involved and feel like a part of that if you're not.

    However, I do applaud Labour's efforts in recycling, especially with regards to old Bills submitted several times

    I won't. Student forums have plenty of people who want to think they are socialists and plenty of people who have traditionally supported the LDs but with the current situation you may not come out of this very well. Which is unfair.

    I did try to pass an amendment to change party names (link in sig) to avoid these things but it was defeated :rolleyes:

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
