General Election 37

So it looks like we are off, with New Labour buoyed by an obviously rogue telephone poll in the Guardian, taken by ICM over the Easter weekend, when only New Labour supporters are sad enough to be answering their telephones in the hope that somebody likes them.

I shall be supporting the Lib Dems as the most progressive mainstream party, but with great concern about their lack of enlightenment over the diasatrous Afghan War, which claimed yet another British soldier yesterday, and doubtless several unreported Afghans. The great scandal of this election will be the conspiracy by the main parties to prevent any debate on Afghanistan.

This is why we should be debating our support for America’s imperial wars:

Sky News has gone opinion poll crazy this morning. Here is my prediction of the final outcome of the UK election in terms of vote share:

Conservative 38

New Labour 28

Lib Dem 24

Others 10

I will work out a prediction for seats later.

Meanwhile, today is Nadira’s birthday, so no more blogging till tomorrow.

    Who is this Alan Campbell? Any relation of the execrable Alastair by any chance or perhaps one and the same? Oh no – sorry – he’s working in the NuLabour election bunker and much too busy to waste time trolling here.

    New Labour is bio-degradable. Everything that has been spun can also be unspun. Tony Blair and Gordon Brown will join Mrs Thatcher as some of the unspun heroes of our time.

    I am inclined in the same direction as Vronsky – vote “other” regardless of who it “lets in”. I am fed up of New Labourites who talk about “letting in the Tories”. I don’t dismiss the Tories as harmless, but if Labour get a trouncing they will have brought it upon themselves, as well as any subsequent worsening of the inequality gap under the Tories.

    @writerman – I don’t blame you for not voting, but will you at least spoil a paper? Anything other than that is recorded as a vote for apathy, not a vote for “none of the above”.

    Dear Mr Murray,

    First of all, Happy Birthday to Nadira. I wish her all the best

    Secondly, my apologies for that this is not related to UK elections, but I was just wondering whether you have seen a speech that current British Ambassador to Uzbekistan has delivered on 10th March. It is HUGE shame for British government and for FCO that they replaced you with this Oxbridge Rupert Joy who according to his speech is more concerned with climate change and history of Uzbekistan than with thousands of political prisoners and torture.

    Here is this infamous speech

    Someone made this point – I was referring to creeping authoritarianism, coupled with corruption and dishonesty, all aspects of tne Soviet state.
