General Election day

Polling StationSo, did you vote? And did you find it a depressing experience? �Hmm, lying bastards, cynical bastards, fluffy losers, one-issue party, another one-issue party and the racists thugs. Decisions, decisions.�

Early exit polls seem to be suggesting that the LibDems and Tories are doing better than expected. If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say we’ll see the disaffected Tory voters who voted for that �nice Mr Blair� in the last two election will return home in droves, and the LibDems will pick up masses of votes in traditional Labour areas where the voters won’t touch the Tories with a long and well-insulated stick. The LibDem �decapitation� campaign on the Tories will probably prove a bit of an error, and they won’t do as well as they would have liked, and as they would have done if they’d focused on winning votes from labour.

UKIP and Veritas will be humbled, the Greens will do much as normal and the BNP will do far better than any of us will like.

Let’s see shall, we?
