They're saying there might be a hung parliament after the next election.

The Observer had a piece the other week with various "experts" giving their opinions on the forthcoming election and the results ranged from narrow Tory win to narrow labour win, few had a hung parliament, which would be a disaster to be honest and lead to another election in a year or so...

Where do they get their info? No one has ever asked me how I intend to vote. Not that I would tell them.

I think it was Peter Mandelson who was saying several momths ago that a hung parliament was on the cards.

But it's early days. I don't doubt that the budget will be an 'election' budget, smear campaigns will start to emerge and that i'll read about all of it and get annoyed.

Nevermind.

Negative campaigning is a sure fire way to drive me into the non-voting wilderness for another 10 years.

"...Mandelson who was saying several momths [sic] ago that a hung parliament was on the cards."


In that case it must be true because he would only tell the truth.

"a hung parliament, which would be a disaster to be honest and lead to another election in a year or so..."

Why?

Minority and coalition governments have worked in the past, long term.

They have also failed, but it is by no means inevitable.

Some believe they can be a good thing, making sure that the extremists in any party are kept in check.

If they didn't have a hung parliament in Scotland they might be heading for independence by now.
