    New Labour is back in power for a fourth term
    Definitely a work of fiction then. And 100% written by lefties.

    They still have quite a high majority - i think it will be close to a hung parliment next time round.

    They have a majority of 66 at the moment which is still quite high - to turn that would be quite a feat. Like I already said, a hung parliment is the most likely result or they get back in by the skin of their teeth.
    I would prefer a Hung Parliment myself.

    The only reson they have that majority is because hardley any seats that have come up for election, and the ones that have come up they have lost. People are sick to death of them, long may it be before they are ever allowed to run our country again.

    Never underestimate the power of the masses to do incredibly stupid things... it wouldn't surprise me at all if they voted Labour back in. Gluttons for punishment.

    Or they could vote the Conservatives in and get a different kind of punishment.

    The problem is...these are EXACTLY the same sentiments as were expressed in 1997 when Labour did manage to overthrow the Tories and get in.
    At the time, we were pleased to rid the country of the power-mad, corrupt government.

    And now???

    Still, I'm looking forward to the day Maggie snuffs it - I have a few parties to attend when it happens.
