    There won't be a majority, but that hasn't stopped anyone for nearly a century anyway.


    I'm predicting a 35% (give or take) Labour victory. Seats are obviously predicted individually.

    - There will be huge swing back from the Libs to Labour, which was the main undermine at last election.
    - The UKIP is going to undercut the Conservatives.
    - Labour are going to last minute replace party leader (probably) and change the game.
    - Greater Green party votes will prevent Labour hitting a 40%
    - What's being called 'Murdoch's Revenge' will most likely cripple the Conservative party.


    In all honesty I'm not sure if it's necessarily a good thing, swapping back and forth after what was essentially an illegal government, and there needs to be some serious policy clarification for both sides so that the impartials who vote on merit can make their decisions (Not that it matters seeing as thats about 0.1% of the population).

    P.S.


    So many negs, nobody willing to quote a reply and explain why.

    I think the Conservatives will hold onto power with the Libdems. If UKIP get a majority they could just merge to become the New Conservatives. Either way the Conservatives will probably hold.

    I can't see a clear winner coming out of the next election.

    Labour are still unpopular from the last time they were in power.
    Lib Dems are a laughing stock at the moment.
    Conservative aren't exactly making themselves popular at the moment.

    I'll bet for a hung parliament if I'm putting money on it.

    If Scotland gets independence, Labour will lose much of its safe seats. This will result in Conservatives splitting between Cameron and New-Conservatives, and True-Blue Tories and Libertarians joining UKIP.

    If not, a Labour majority in parliment, backed by a few Greens and more Respect gains, mainly in Birmingham

    David Cameron The Great has been at the helm of the Tories now for nearly 8 years. What an incredible achievement! He will easily win the next election, and if he manages to win the next one after that (that's the real challenge, as Labour may have a competent leader by then), he will easily surpass Fatcha's record as the longest-serving PM.

    In Cameron We Trust!

    It feels so good to be a Tory Boy, at the minute.

    It is far too early to tell, the election is in 2 years time.

    Labour might but don't deserve to because they have no policies.

    People say UKIP will ruin the tory vote, no ones ever mentioned Tory-UKIP coalition.
    For Ukip to get say 10 seats they need 25% of the vote, if that happens then the Tories will probably be on around 200 MP's at 30% so there'd be no way to form a government anyway.

    So long as we have FPTP then Ukip just gift Labour victory.

    Hung parliament.

    Labour's going nowhere fast.
    Lib Dems will be hit due to their affiliation with unpopular coalition policies but I wouldn't predict a wipeout.
    Conservatives will struggle due to incumbency and a strong challenge from the right (UKIP may get its first seat).

    Labour will be the largest party, I reckon.
