    Could it be that FPTP comes to rescue the RL Lib Dems when the general election comes as if it is another hung parliament does it give the LD more room to make the electoral reform a coalition red-line?
    I saw some quite interesting analysis on this, I'll see if I can find it again and send you a link. It's distinctly possible the Lib Dems will, despite losing 2/3rds of their votes, still be in the Kingmaker position. But there's also a theory that if it's very close between Labour and the Tories, a collapse in the LDs to ~30 seats and a growth in the minor parties (Plaid, SNP, Green, UKIP, Respect, various Indies, the Speaker, all NI parties, and even an outside shot at Cornish Nationalists) to a combined total of ~60 seats will leave us in a position where the Lib Dems can give NEITHER party a majority, leaving us with either a minority government or a rainbow coalition. That might not be so good for electoral reform with so many different interests having to be considered.

    Personally i find it hard to believe that the Libs will do worse in the general than they have in the locals so using that vote share, i don't expect them to poll below 13%. They'll lose 13 seats in total i reckon (could theoretically win 7 from the Tories if Ukip dig enough). So assuming they have 40 seats and a majority is 326 then 286 is the floor. Realistically though, back bench rebellions mean that any majority less than about 30 is meaningless in which case both parties would go for a minority and call a second election in the spring of 2016.

    Locals have a generally lower turnout, though, which probably inflates the votes of everyone bar Labour and Conservative. I expect a lower proportion of the people not so politically interested to vote LD in 2015. When you take into account people who don't mind their local Lib Dem council but still dislike Clegg etc I think they could well poll single figures.

    What are the parties opinions on global warming or at least UK warming? If the CET averages just 1C above average for the Oct-Nov-Dec period then England will record its warmest year on record for the 3rd time in 20 years. Indeed, the 3 warmest years are very likely to have all occurred within the last 8 years.

    My understanding is that it's left to the Speaker so that the seat allocation can be worked out, but I can't be 100% sure on that.

    It is an issue. However, there are many more factors that contribute to this than purely man-made issues.

    As a country we should divide our efforts on getting the USA, China, India and other top polluters to change their energy usage. We are not the main problem, we need to educate developing nations who are going through their industrial revolution.

    My personal opinion.

    IMO he should reveal it immediately, let us look over the votes etc. while he is working out the seat allocations, always adds a bit of tension
