Just for a laugh, I plugged the current results into the electoral calculus predictor with the following result

Labour 317 seats
Greens 165
Lib Dem 124
Con 10 laugh.gif
UKIP 5

I didn't put in a figure for the SNP, so their figure (six) can't be taken seriously.

Same as John, no NI parties yet so plugged in to England. I got -

Conservatives - 40%
Green - 30%
Liberal Democrats - 20%
Labour -10%

Given that I always thought I was more in tune with Labour, I was taken a little bit aback by that.

By category -

Crime
Conservatives

Democracy
Conservatives

Economy
Labour

Education
Green Party

Environment
Conservatives

Europe
Liberal Democrats

Foreign Policy / Defence
Green Party

Health / NHS
Conservatives

I thought I was more Conservative on economic policy, but it turns out the Conservatives don't believe in free markets anymore.. so I guess not! biggrin.gif

They've managed to implement more of their last manifesto than the party (and its predecessors) has managed for many decades tongue.gif

wasted an hour on doing all of the options and then it went into an endless loop - just pick a few!

Suffice to say I would bound to have come out as mostly Lib Dem with a hint of Labour and Green. that seems to be the general theme amongst people who are less Lib Dem than I.....

Have they summarised every SNP policy as "Blame the English"?

Surely that should read in brackets "but shhhh don't mention the Scottish Prime Minister/Chancellor who ran the country along with the English PM"

So, apart from democracy, public transport, subsidies, free health, free education, one of the fairest benefits systems in the world, old age pensions, equality legislation... what have the Romans ever done for us...?!
