    Every Labour politician positively squirms when asked about forming a coalition with the Lib Dems.

    If they just bow down and agree to the coalition the Lib Dems will walk all over them and be able to get whatever they want.

    I wonder how much they'd squirm over a Tory/Labor coalition.

    I think voting corruption only comes to light now because we care. Vote tampering by conservative members, now postal votes going missing and for some reason voters not being allowed to vote.

    ...it's in the shape of a giant c**k.

    Oh, what idiots said that last time? Noel Edmonds was one wasn't he?

    Noel "bleedin' 'elf and safety' Edmonds is the kind of guy who would do that. But every country has a couple.

    I cannot think of any terribly sexy male newsreaders.

    On my iPhone, but someone should link an image to that one where all the BBC newsreaders dressed up as the characters from rocky horror picture show.

    Happy nghtmares.

    Also "Wanting Change" does not equal "Wanting a Tory government" no matter how much the Tories might wish it was so.

    I am really really hoping the Tories are kept away from a majority. What I've heard about all the cuts they've made in areas they have taken over really takes the edge of their rhetoric. I heard of one region where they took a public park and turned it into a frigging polo field.

    Sexy newsreaders? Sweden represent! Spoilered because only temporarily topical.

    I liked that example. Ask a kid for a crisp.

    If he gives you the whole bag he's a communist
    If he trusts you to take the right amount of crisps, hes a Lib Dem
    If he gives you a crisp and charges you for it, hes a socialist
    And if he says get your own fucking crisps, hes a tory.

    ...it's in the shape of a giant c**k.

    They got Dumfries in 2005; I'd be surprised if they didn't at least hold that.

    A lot of people can only vote after work - so their window of opportunity may only be 6PM to 10PM, then if they have families, it might be less

    Those are the rules, though the point is being made that it is unprecedented and is more to do with the turnouts this time around. It's not like it happens routinely.

    I would think that 55% is good for Sunderland.

    Indeed it is, bigger than the last three elections.
