    The Tories would still win the next election if David Cameron was involved in a sex and cocaine scandal with Margaret Thatcher.

    I think the tories will be in for a couple of terms.....largely due to labour's recent shortcomings

    Though if they want to keep the anti-labour voters they'll have to pull some amazing stuff out of the bag

    Try to keep personal political views out of this, as I know a lot of you are impassioned anti-Labour righties.
    bit of a double standard there, i know alot of people on here have said that they are voting labour becasue "they need the support" and actually hate the way things are being run

    " the election in Norwich where the constituency was particularly embroiled in the expenses scandal."

    Just to make the point. The conservative vote went down. The turn out when down by about 20%. The conservatives won by about 20% of the vote. People arn't voting labour, but there not voting anything else. When a general election comes round, people are much more likely to vote. A local election makes little effect on them, but when that 20% of people face cameron at number 10, they'll do one of two things. Jump off a cliff at having the prospect of the inexperienced, upper class idiot in power. Or vote labour and hope to god Alan Johnson is the new leader.

    Why haven't Lib Dem done better, though? Shouldn't they do quite well with disillusioned Labour voters?

    That baffles me too. It seems like labour voters are either voting tory or not voting at all - I don't understand why either of those are preferable for a labour voter to the lib dems.

    Lib dems did better in the local elections at stealing labour votes than in this by-election though. But the lib dems are going to take a thumping and a half in the south-west so they better steal some labour urban areas or they're doomed to a very very low amount of MP's.

    Well, the simple answer is no.

    I mean, this is politics. Tomorrow Brown could call an election. He could resign as leader. Cameron could reveal to the country just how much of a vacuous moron he really is. Anything could happen tomorrow, and the election can wait until next year!

    Anyone who thinks they know the answer 100% for sure is an idiot, whatever that answer is.

    Saying that, it seems pretty likely from this viewpoint.
