Scotland

Although the playing field is still very uneven for the smaller parties, but the Tories never mention that.

When is this late surge for the Tories in the polls going to happen? It's been promised for months / years and there's only hours to go now.

I saw it on FB, possibly the National's website. 4 protesters, 30 Labour and 20 press/ media. The media will always show you what they want you to see, not the whole picture.

Why do you think the majority of the public wouldn't like it (as they wouldn't have voted Conservative), and in what way would it be damaging, and to what?

It just shows the 3 unionist parties are so similar and that only the SNP and Scottish Greens offer a realistic alternative.

The only swing that really matters is the one from the election in 2010. Any reduction in seats for a party is a sign of failure no matter how you spin it.

I'd say there is a definite surge to the SNP, and a very large anti-Lib Dem feeling as people feel betrayed by them. Labour voters have abandoned them due, in part, to Jim Murphy.

That's still up one for Labour and down one for the Conservatives since the last GE. Also UKIP is incredibly low compared to other recent polls.

I suspect there is a large chance the election could be re-run if Labour loses. Who is the other missing candidate?

Do you think the Scots are stupid enough to fall for that totally false argument (although it's Labour's only chance in Scotland)?

I think there could be local effects with some people keeping their seats because they are from the area and have been place for a long time, but 50+ seats for the SNP is a possibility.

From the 2010 GE, that's:
Con -2
Lab +4
LD - 16
UKIP +12
Green +4

I fail to see how the Tories will end up with more seats than they have at present

No need to focus on anywhere, we need a more representational system so all political viewpoints which are voted for in numbers are properly represented.

Both the Tories and Labour have an inbuilt advantage. Is it fair that a party getting 15% of the vote may end up with 2seats instead of about 100?
