O.P. UK General Election - May 6th 2010
The United Kingdom general election of 2010 will be held on 6 May to elect one Member of Parliament in each of the 650 constituencies to the House of Commons, the lower house of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The election was called on 6 April, and Parliament was dissolved  on 12 April for the ensuing campaign. Voting will take place between 7.00 am and 10.00 pm. Local elections will also be held in some areas on that day.

If you can or want to vote who would you vote for? There's been a lot of hype about this on the news and shit, and I remembered the big thread we had when it was Obama ;)

Wait wait wait, so in the UK you don't have fixed election dates?

[We have one each 2 years, btw. President and Governors, which is this year, and Senators, Federal and State Deputies, and Members of Municipalities. The two most voted go for a second round if the first voted doesn't get at least 50%+1 votes, President and Governor only.

You don't choose a party, you get a candidate, and his vice, instead.]

No, the Prime minister calls the election. At any time he can call one but there must be one every 5 years. Usually the prime minister calls one before the 5 years.

O.o ... Clegg has completely different views to Brown?

If you're thinking of voting Conservatives, you might wanna watch this first.

Vote Lib Dems and parliament will be hung... They need a clear 50-ish%  to get in...

Plus, Lib Dems haven't been in power for around what, 90 years? They don't have the experience anyway

I agree with some things, but others just seem stupid (or unfair really)

Yes, but not enough people will vote for Clegg to get him in.....so the statement means that voting for Clegg will just take votes away from the Conservative and leave Labour as the majority...

Anyone can edit a video like that about any two people to show similarities, it's just political spin ;)

Ever seen Barack Roll?  Doesn't mean that Rick Astley should be president of the US ;)
