A flip-flop to Lib-Lab?

My goodness. I've just watched the ding dong between Alistair Campbell (previously Labour party spin doctor in chief) and Adam Boulton (Sky News head political reporter). Quite funny to see someone stick it to the Murdoch owned broadcaster where it hurts. Kind of like when the Independent ran the poster advert - Rupert Murdoch won't decide this election. You will - and had one of the Murdoch clan and the chief exec of News International going round to have a word with the Indys editor ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2010/apr/22/james-murdoch-independent-dodge-city )

Rupert Murdoch unfortunately has a lot of sway over our elections too.

So, any ideas as to the new PM?

It'll be Milliband, won't it? Looks a bit like our Tony, but not quite as smiley.

He looks to me as if his face has had a whirlpool swirl added to it in photoshop.

Here he is (it is David who is tipped, isn't it?).

Yeah. See what I mean? One of the most lopsided faces in politics. Presumably there's just the one of it?

The brother's cuter http://i.thisislondon.co.uk/i/pix/galleries/showbiz/agestupid/ed-milliband.jpg

but clearly he doesn't have the ears for being a PM.

This is fun. How superficial can we be?

Rumour has it both the Milibands might stand. Which could be interesting. I still thing they both look about 12, though.

Actually, I was relieved to find they are both older than me. Just.

Apparently Lib MP Andy Burnham "said it could be perceived as bad for democracy if we are not listening to what the public have very clearly said."

And there's me thinking the reason we're in this position is because the public haven't said anything very clearly...

We were clearly mumbling though.

I do think the most enjoyable aspect of this election is listening to the politicians trying to justify their position.

That'll be Labour MP (Leigh) and Minister for Health Andy Burnham

Maybe we should do this more often.

Having a hung parliament certainly makes uk politics much more interesting.

Despite being a party member, I am firmly of the belief that candidates are elected to represent their constituency first and party second and I reserve the right to vote for another parties candidate if they are a better choice for this area than one selected by the party I am a member of.

I don't think we were mumbling, we collectively told all of them clearly that we were not going to give any of them what they wanted.

I thought like Dimblebys they were pretty much interchangeable.
