Re: The United Kingdom General Election thread

yeah he does look a bit dull-ish - but his heritage is probably the most interesting i've ever seen, ranging from big shots in imperial russia to dutch-indonesian colonialists. pretty cool.

Re: The United Kingdom General Election thread

Nick Clegg my local mp ftw All 3 parties have their pro's and con's a combination of Brown and Clegg would be best imo, but I really don't know if the parties can work together effectively.

Go Andy!

Indeed.

This debate put them on an even par with the other two parties and he grabbed it with both hands.
Which was nice to see. Bit more variety of opinion and approach made it much more interesting than the usual two-way battle.

Re: The United Kingdom General Election thread

Loved the way Murdoch's lot were making out Cameron won the debate and the presenters were disagreeing with anyone whose opinion differed.

Fuck off Rupert.

On the BBC Site.

Andrew Larner, from Canterbury, writes: "They still haven't got the message, have they? If we elect a hung Parliament, that's up to us. Their job is to make it work, not to lecture us on why it won't."
Well said.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The United Kingdom General Election thread

I'm working in a campaigns team at this election. I'm far too left wing for any of the main parties but I'm working with one, learning how best to run a campaign before putting the revolution into practice a few years down the line.
It's pretty interesting

Re: The United Kingdom General Election thread

I would support the Green Party or the Lib Dems just like my family in Britain. According to them, they are the best solution to the problems in the United Kingdom

The Greens focus on environmental issues, environmental issues and.. environmental issues... too many eco-terrorists.

Lib Dems never had a chance, so why not? If Rage Against The Machine can defeat X Factor, then the LDs can get into power...

Re: The United Kingdom General Election thread

Election news finally reached Canada. I guess Brown is done for now - Labour brought down by a ''bigoted'' old woman. Have to laugh.

The Final TV Debate

Awesome, the BBC posted the full debate this time. Good to hear more specifics from each leader rather than just vague bs.

Hope the Tories win.

As long as we kick out Brown and his ghastly little team around him, I`ll be content. Cameron or a Cameron/Clegg coalition will be fine with me, though because I am out of the country I have already voted via postal ballot, so too late to change for me now anyway.

Re: The United Kingdom General Election thread

Gordon Clown what a character.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
