Please please please let this happen.
If Labour win this, it will be the largest majority overturned ever. 19096 was Clegg's majority.

If Clegg loses this seat Ed Miliband fully deserves to be Prime Minister with a Labour majority.






(Its not happening 1: Sheffield labour council are hated, 2: There are more Tories than Labour voters 3: Labour isn't spending a dime here 4: Other than a few die hard labour voters people in the area actually like Clegg )

I really hope the Lib Dems retain their seat.

One fewer seat for Labour is always a good thing.

It would be a massive swing for LD to lose SH as it was considered a safe seat. Labour is bringing the big guns to unseat Clegg and remove LD leadership. SH has a large student population and it depends if they are registered to vote in SH. Tory voters can vote strategically and support LD. Ditto for Danny Alexander's constituency.

It would be very funny tho wouldn't it. It'd be like when Chris Patten loses his own seat as party chairman.

Maybe Clegg will be sent to Australia.

Oliver Coppard is a brilliant candidate. Can't wait for the look on Clegg's face as he loses and realises just how much he's sold out on his principles and beleifs.

Ah well, sure the tories will let him stand for them at the next by-election.

I don't think you can compare one person to an entire political party.

I just did compare one person to an entire political party in case you hadn't noticed.

I think Clegg will hold it.

Invariably most governing parties have people who abandon them but come the day they decide 'better the devil you know'. Sometimes that's not enough (Portillo) but being 2% out and gaining in recent months (one can can see a 7% move to them since November and a 6% for Labour) i think he'll survive.

Next time though it may be prudent for the coalition parties not to run candidates against cabinet ministers.

I think by now he's realised that.
