Then why wasn't this raising of personal allowances mentioned in the 2010 Conservative manifesto?

Anyhow, it's all smoke and mirrors IMHO, since what the government have given with one hand they've...

I wouldn't believe what you read in the Telegraph. It used to be considered a serious newspaper, but nowadays it's more like the Mail. If you want to know what the Green party's policies are, I...

It would more likely be a confidence and supply agreement than a coalition. This would enable Labour to remain in power while the SNP could abstain on English-only matters.

That's what my wife did. She took redundancy but avoided signing on, partly due to the box-ticking aspect but also the fear of being forced to take an unsuitable job. Therefore she wouldn't have been...

Oh come off it. It's obvious that Cameron would rather avoid a debate with Miliband and also Farage. Or, at the very least, he's been advised by Conservative head office not to take part.

How do you know what their motives are? They may not even be making a choice, but be ignorant of the process. In addition, plenty of those who are registered don't vote.

Of course he doesn't care. When has Cameron ever been concerned with fairness?

I wish the other parties would call his bluff by asking the broadcasters to include the Green party in the TV debates.

I still don't know how you can define 'British culture'. It probably means a lot of different things to different people, based mainly on their upbringing and part of the country.

Aren't falling oil/gas prices also likely to affect the viability of fracking in the UK? I understand that some US fracking operations are already struggling.
