Weird things will happen. The fracturing of the "neither" vote under FPTP means that the chances are one or other will get a majority on a very low share of the vote. It wouldn't surprise me if the...

I predict a similar epiphany if UKIP achieve power.

According to the Mirror, Ed Balls has ruled out a coalition with the SNP.

(4) is my preferred option as it will expose the Tory backbenchers for what they are.

I have been saying that this election is poison.

If a pub finds itself in a position where it isn't viable because the local population don't drink, it needs to close.

Market forces, nothing more sinister. One of those things.

The only 'bizarre' question I would want answered is what happens to the UK post-referendum in the event of an 'out' vote.

So you acknowledge that UKIP are a one-issue party with no reason to exist beyond that.
