In TSR's 'Manifesto Snapshots' article, highlighted at the top of the homepage, there are links to manifesto snapshots and discussions about them for five left wing parties (Labour, Lib Dems, Greens, SNP, Plaid Cymru) - but neither the Conservatives or UKIP. I realise that it may just be that the articles aren't ready yet, but in that case I'd suggest the article isn't ready to be published. In terms of making a balanced and informed decision, surely the Conservative and Labour manifestos are the most important, as they're the only two with a realistic possibility of forming a government?
It doesn't look very neutral!

This might help.

Worth noting that some people may well be voting tactically by voting for smaller parties that would probably never get a majority
I know the information is out there, but (as far as I'm aware) TSR is at least notionally neutral. Only covering the left wing manifestos doesn't really fit with that!

Maybe they are trying to expose them for their worth, whilst protecting Con and UKIP from scrutiny. I very much doubt it but it could be.

You do raise a good point... TSR, how do you explain that one?
