Ed's 'stone tablet' is like something the writers of The Thick Of It would reject as too ridiculous. I look forward to the other party leaders (by way of outdoing him) announcing that they're going to get their election pledges tattooed onto themselves.

This is worth sharing in the context of the UK election:

We went another 91 days without a government after that article was published.

Maybe you need Britain to help you out again, like in the last two wars? It only took us five days to get our coalition shit together. laugh

I wouldn't be so smug. Scotland hadn't imploded last time around. Besides, Sab's point is that Belgium did rather well without government.

Anyway, I'm finding this election impossible to call. Going to have to vote tactically and I hate doing that.

Just my little joke there. And Scotland hasn't imploded just yet. I'll wait for polling day and thereafter.

So who are you all voting for tomorrow? Or is that a taboo to disclose in Britain (I honestly don't know)?
I do know it's not done to ask a German that.

My seat has a Lib Dem incumbent but a constituency poll put him third behind Labour and the Greens. In these circumstances there is absolutely no appeal to tactical voting so I'll be voting for UKIP.

As a social liberal but staunch economic conservative (I favour protectionism over free trade, oppose globalisation, and have no issues with my income tax contributing towards the general welfare)--I'll be voting Green, but it won't make any difference. My constituency has been mostly Labour run since 1972, and there's no sign of that changing, sadly.

Mine is solidly Tory though you wouldn't know by the amount of Labour/Green/UKIP I've seen on the streets. Outside the town one side of the road has Conservative placards, across the road is UKIP...the other day the Tory placards were all in the road. Pretty lively for rural Bucks.

I'll vote.

The fascination with that picture is a bit odd.

I mean, of course it is completely ridiculous, but I was surprised to see how much it featured on the eve of the election.

I decided to vote for a single issue party, and it wasn't UKIP...

For whatever it is worth, from a tweet:

Electoral Calculus who were the closest at the 2010 election are predicting

CON = 280

LAB = 274

LIB DEM = 21

SNP = 52
