Recommended Posts

David Cameron is closing in on an outright victory in Thursday’s election and has to win over voters in just 14 seats to secure a parliamentary majority, according to a poll of marginal constituencies for The Daily Telegraph.

 

With momentum building behind the Tories, party strategists believe Mr Cameron is “on the cusp” of being able to form a government by the weekend. The Conservatives are on course to seize at least 103 seats from Labour – 14 shy of the 117 needed to secure an overall majority, the poll shows.

 

It found a swing of 7.5 per cent to the Tories in the Labour seats they are targeting

 

Even if Mr Cameron failed to secure a clear majority, the Telegraph poll indicates he could form a minority government with support from unionist MPs in Northern Ireland and independents.

 

Senior Tory figures are also confident of luring several Labour and Liberal Democrat MPs to defect to a Cameron government.

And it yet more good news http://generalelection2010.timesonline.co.uk/#/Predictions finktank has been updated and is now broadly in line with Ladbrokes prediction.

 

*Note how they now predict Eastleigh will turn blue.:)

 

I certainly hope so. The Lib/Dems have been obnoxious in their election propaganda these past couple of elections.

 

In every issue of their propaganda that falls onto the doormat, they have a little chart showing the last general election result where they won by a small majority of 300 or so. And so they call it a two horse race and state categorically that Labour cannot win here. In the last issue, they had the gall to state that Labour had already lost, even though not one vote had been cast.

 

One marvels at the bare-faced cheek of it, as they have often been the third party in by-elections and have come through to win the seat. What might they have thought of similar statements telling the electorate that the Lib/Dems could not win the seat? I'm hoping that a combination of factors will unseat Huhne.

 

Some Labour supporters might take heed of his statement and vote for somebody else other than him, in anger at his presumption.

 

Others might vote for the Liberal candidate who is standing on a platform that Huhne had made some election pledge the last time around which he did not honour.

 

Huhne had overturned a usual Conservative seat largely because of the fallout surrounding the Stephen Milligan scandal. Now that the electorate have given the Conservatives a kicking over that, time to move on and forget that and vote on the strengths of the candidates and what they could do for the constituency.

 

Most will realise that if they are to get rid of the busted flush that is Brown and the Labour party, they will not achieve that by voting in Lib/Dems, who will toady up to them in a hung Parliament.

Until the early hours of Friday we won't really know will we Stanley. And again, it's hardly surprising to have this news in the Torygraph now is it. Lets just wait and see shall we!
