It is a public poll.

CON 33%(-4), LAB 28%(-3), LDEM 30%(+8)
On a uniform swing these figures would leave Labour the largest party, despite being in third place. The Lib Dems would have around about 100 seats. In reality though, it’s almost impossible to say how this would translate into an election result.
It has been a while since the UK has had a coalition government. How are the relations between the LibDems and the Tories?
You're right they don't. It's very very hard to predict the outcome of a UK general election.It has been a while since the UK has had a coalition government. How are the relations between the LibDems and the Tories?
Btw percentages don't say that much in a constituency system though, do they? How does that work with polling?
It's a protest vote. I want to register my disgust towards politicians collectively, for creating a situation where there are so many non-whites walking around.Laivasse, it says you'd vote BNP? You're one of our more rational posters here, I find it hard to believe you were being serious there.
You have got to be joking?! An Irishman voting for the British national party? Have you no sense of national pride?It's a protest vote. I want to register my disgust towards politicians collectively, for creating a situation where there are so many non-whites walking around.
The professional polls (ICM/YouGov/Populous/Ipsos Mori/ComRes etc) are weighted to be representative. Online public polls are indeed bullshit and to be ignored.I can see the Live Debates changing the statistics. But then again, all the stats Ive seen on who will be voting for who are based on 10,000 responses from an online poll...which basically doesnt represent anything when theres 60-odd million people in the UK.
Clearly I am. A 'protest' vote for the BNP which actually agreed with their policies wouldn't actually be much of a protest vote. It would just be a voteYou have got to be joking?!
I just laughed out loud when I was watching *cringe* Sky News and saw the % figures of 31|35|24|10 , whilst underneath it said in small letters that the it was based on 1000-odd responses of a sky new website public poll.Yes online polls are shit, but not becuase they only ask 10,000 people.
You could do a reasonable poll and only ask 5,000 people I imagine, given the number of constituencies.
What you're seeing in that vid is an excerpt from the weekly session of Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs), a section of which is set aside for the leader of the opposition to pose some questions to the PM directly. It's degenerated into a meaningless public pantomime, in which each man tries to get in the most stinging barbs while each party clamours to contribute the most raucous support.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfHqxxYVzu4What in the hell at the Parliament. I think I've seen them in session before in video, but never like this. It's like a freaking classroom in there. Quite bizarre to look at. It makes our legislative branch look quite... hrm, I don't know how to describe it.
Basically our voting system massively favours the incumbents. Lib Dems would need 40% of the vote or more for a majority, the figure is much lower for the other two. It's all messed up. Labour can get least votes but have most seats depending on the split.I am thick and keep seeing that sort of breakdown - please explain how that works Eejit.
