In m'current situation Tory policies would probably benefit me best.



Can't bear to think of the Tories ever getting into power again though so I'm voting Gordon Brown.

I don't know!



I voted Lib Dem, but I'm honestly not sure Nick Clegg could possibly be prepared to be PM. Gordon Brown PM in Lib/Lab coalition just seems like the best outcome right now. I hate that it's probably going to be Cameron, I don't believe he's a human being.

The UK has not adopted the Euro. We still use £ here.



But yes, whomever wins will have to cut services and increase taxes quite radically in order to relieve the large UK debt. This will no doubt have the effect of making the populace of Britain hate whomever is in power and not vote for them in the following election. It's a poisoned chalice for the winner of this election.

the euro falling apart is going to have a big impact on the entire region, the uk included. i really never thought the euro would make it and i'm surprised that it's lasted as long as it has.

Exit polls put Cameron just short of majority. Looks like we're in for a hung parliament.



Doesn't look like the Lib Dems are gonna do well.

I read somewhere on the internet, somebody wrote that Glenda Jackson would have been preferable to run in place of Nicholas Clegg.



Four people would write in Barack Obama?

Out of those choices Mr long legged cleggy wegg..



Really I would love Caroline Lucas to be PM... but she's not even an MP... yet. I'm staying up because I want to see the results for her constituency because she's got a really good chance to win the first ever seat for the Greens . Fingers-crossed...

The euro isn't falling apart. I suggest you find a more reliable news source. The euro / pound exchange rate changing in favour of the pound is actually good news for Britain.

Obama's popularity in Europe is mainly due to the fact that after 8 years of Bush its nice to have someone who doesn't look and act like an idiot in the White House.

So you want a leader that destroyed the industrial base of a country? A leader that sold off national assets to the highest bidder raising the cost of utilities and transportation for its citizens? A leader that destroyed thousands of jobs and a whole way of life? A leader who openly favoured the elite while wrecking the lives of ordinary working people? A leader who failed to invest in the infrastructure of the country which led to it falling behind its neighbours?



I'm sure millions of brits would love to deport her from this country and I'm sure the enemies of the USA would love to see Thatcher ruin the USA. Why you do is a mystery to me.

i think you should have payed striking coal miners an annual salary of 1 million pounds. as a gov't owned industry there's no reason you can't pay them a cool million. same with the royal mail, teachers, soldiers, police. pay up.

There is no coal industry any more, thanks to Thatcher.



And the Royal Mail is limited company owned by the UK government but with corporate style management. The Royal Mail workers are still in a pay freeze while the boss of the Royal Mail gets paid £200,000 a year for working a 2 day week. The last boss ran the Royal Mail into the ground by closing post offices and paving the way for competition. Is this the kind of thing you admire?
