Which celebrity will win in bennelong tonight? Alexander has retained the seat. The swing against him was only 4.5%, which was not as much as the ALP said it would be. Considering there is always a swing against the sitting member in a by-election, I think it wasn't a bad result for the Libs.
Am I the only one who gets really excited when elections come up? No. However, I vote for who I most agree with - voting only for who is most likely to win is just plain stupid. It IS enormously important so I'm impatient to know the result. Here in the UK, a general election makes great political TV for insomniacs. We vote by pencil and paper - none of that unreliable voting machine stuff - so it's all counted by hand and the big rush of constituency (electoral district) results comes in around 2-3 am. There's an informal race between the geographically small town and city constituencies most likely to declare a result first (the record is 45 minutes, so that'll be 10.45 after polls close at 10 pm) but most will take a few hours longer, and the really rural ones might not manage a declaration until next morning. Labour are most popular in cities, they're likely to declare earlier, so it can often look as if Labour are in the lead early on. But are they really? There will be speculation on TV about the swing in those constituencies... will this mean anything for the overall result? Maybe not, after all the Conservative results come in later. At which point I tend to nod off on the sofa. At any rate, we should know who the next government is by breakfast, or if we don't, we know it's heading for a tight result. Love it, but staying awake to follow it is another matter.
Will you vote at the next election? The next election for me will be the Scottish Independence Referendum. I will be voting, but I'm not telling you how - heh heh. Next General Election - No, but not for for any big reason. It's just that I have never lived in a place where my vote would make any difference. I lived in a safe Labour seat in the Thatcher / Blair era. Making Frank Dobson's majority 20,001 instead of 20,000 wasn't going to change history was it ? Now I live in the only Tory (safe) seat in Scotland, a country where just over 400,000 votes give the Tories 1 Westminster seat, and just over a million give labour 41 seats. (Grrrr. Bah humbug and various other grumpy old man noises.) EDIT : if there's a UKIP candidate here I will vote.
Why was the swing in Scotland to Labour against the Tories? The Tory vote was up by 0.9% and the Labour vote was up up 2.5%. The Lib lost ground by 3.7%. The swing from the SNP to Labour was 0.1%, however the SNP vote was by 2.3%. The Scottish seats haven't changed hands at all, that is fact. But, that of course that being said, the Tory vote in Scotland has gone up, from 15.8% (369,388) in 2005 to 16.7% (412,855) in 2010. Part of the seat count is down to the current voting system of First Past The Post (FPTP) in the UK Election. Looking at the 2007 Scottish Parliament Vote (where the AMS system is used). for instance, the Tory vote was at 16.6% (0.1 % point below that of their 2010 vote) at 334,743 votes, with the List vote at 13.9% (284,005 votes) which gave the Tories 17 seats total out of 129 seats - far more representative of their vote count. Worth also noting that the Tory % of vote in Scotland was only a few % points behind the Lib Dems and SNP, in the 2010 General Election. Doing the maths, if a truly representative voting system was used, the Tories in Scotland should have got around 10 seats of Scotland's 59 - in the 2010 UK General Election. Also worth a look: http://"Why Didn't Scots Vote Tory" on BBC One Scotland yesterday (9th of May).
Will Theresa May do anything to ensure that the horror in Manchester never happens again, or just give boring predictable speeches about it? seems you have your wish and she is now deploying the army. what effect will this have on the general election result ,and it has now become a general election issue with the question she is sending out to people but not actually asking it, who do you trust to keep the UK safe me or corbyn?. she is using the blood of our children to get elected as prime minister and is a vile woman indeed. this scum bag bombing Manchester has most likely given her the general election victory she wants and before this bombing she was on the ropes taking homes off pensioners and her manifesto was in tatters to say Islamic state are our enemy they might have given May her general election victory. is it luck I doubt it?
do people in the U.K really believe the "election process" in the U.K. is truly an honest, fair & democratic one? Because of the process the UK has, which is very transparent ( unlike the US process) so yes we KNOW it is as honest, fair & democratic as any process can be where people are involved. Some of us may not like some results, some of us may not like some selections of people standing for election as selections are made by their own party members, however the public can or not vote for them. "When Parliament is dissolved every seat in the House of Commons becomes vacant and a general election is held. Each constituency in the UK elects one Member of Parliament (MP) to a seat in the House of Commons then publicly voted to see which party wins that seat. Usually the political party that wins the most seats in the House of Commons forms the Government."

The 2017 New Zealand general election will always belong to Jacinda Ardern Beyond the question of who forms the next government, New Zealanders will look back on this election campaign as a turning point Six weeks ago, New Zealand’s election campaign was limping toward a foregone conclusion. The centre-right National party looked a shoo-in for a fourth term (matching the legendary 1960-72 administration of Keith Holyoake ), and prime minister Bill English was on track to find redemption (he was party leader when National suffered its worst-ever election defeat in 2002).

Did the candidacy of Ross Perot swing the 1992 presidential election? Reading the Wikipedia article on the 1992 presidential candidacy of Ross Perot, one would get the impression that it made no difference to the outcome of the election. However, after looking at the numbers myself, I thought it was pretty clear that if Perot had not been in the election, Bush would have probably won Colorado, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa, Georgia and New Jersey. This would have been 105 electoral votes, enough to give Bush a narrow victory. Pennsylvania would have become close, as well. Was there any attempt to carefully poll Perot voters in those states to determine if Bush actually would have won those states, such as New Jersey? For example, to take New Jersey as the pivotal example, Clinton won by 80,000 votes and Perot won 520,000 votes in New Jersey. Therefore, if the Perot voters had split 310 to 210 for Bush in New Jersey, then Bush would have won New Jersey. Has a poll been done to determine this? UPDATE Some commenters seem to have the idea that Perot was mostly supported by Democratic voters. This seems to be some kind of modern revisionism. I well remember the 1992 election and Perot was getting most of his support from conservative voters. Here is a Field poll from 1993 that backs this up for those who are not old enough to remember: As you can see Republican voters dominate Democratic voters in his support base, in some cases by a 2-to-1 ratio. I don't really consider it arguable that Perot candidacy hurt Bush. The question is whether it was enough to have turned the election or not. To answer that question I think we really need poll data from specific states such as New Jersey.
