Like every opinion column writer I'm sure you're deliberately waving a red flag at a bull. But 'Greens - 65' - is there something going on down in Cornwall the rest of us don't know about?

In which case I reckon Mebyon Kernow will take 10 seats (though I think they've only got six candidates) because due to a menu printing error at the West Cornwall Pasty Co four pasty varieties win seats near large metropolitan railway stations.

I predict a low turn-out. Because I think most of the population are sick to death of our politicians and the truly unpleasant people they seem to be.

Since the SNP will have a lot of MPs there will likely be a Government of National Unity to freeze them out. Labour and Tory combination?

That's what you want to happen?

UKIP aren't likely to get more than about 3 seats. The Greens maybe 1 if they're lucky.
LibDem are looking at more like 20-30.

Ladbrooks, at time of posting, have got the tories on 3/10 for the most seats and labour on 5/2. The others are out at silly numbers. I never bet, but always have a look at the bookmakers around election time.

Nate Silver nailed it. Its going to be chaotic. The Tories will get the most seats but all the minor parties and the nationalists will unite against them. We are going to be ruled by the fishy duo...and become and old style socialist state.

Good question, perhaps I'm being provocative? :wink:

I was just daydreaming yesterday and thinking that the results of this election will probably be the final end of The Old Order. The last election was a sort of pre-curser to it, but there's much water gone under the bridge in the last few years.
