    It`s good to dream sometimes though I doubt whether it will ever happen.
    Absolutely agree.

    Too much short term, "I want all the power" thinking and they've all lost sight of what's best for the country and the people.

    I think the problem is that they are making 'promises' and it is very much over use and at the moment no party is a clear winner as I like some bit in labour, some bit in Tory and some bit in Lib Dems ho hum.....

    I'm completely apathetic this time around. I don't mind admitting that since I turned 18 I have voted Labour every time. This time I really don't know. I will vote but I'd really like a "none of the above" option on the ballot paper - I have done my democratic duty but do not wish any of those named to represent me.

    Gordon Brown is hopeless. David Cameron does not have to presence to lead a country. Nick Clegg...who? Is the lesser of evils really.

    Just give me 1 = $1.60 and you have my vote.

    That`s fine if you are a tourist but the exchange rate is really hitting those companies who do a lot of export to the States.
    My old company are really feeling the pinch because of this and may well have to consider laying workers off.

    If you run an export business then 1 = $1 seems about right, but if you are a tourist then 1 = $2 would be ok.

    My dad said you used to get $4 to 1.

    Anyway if Parliament has been dissolved who's running the country for the next month?

    Completely agree :( and I'm at completely the opposite end of the political spectrum to Dawn. So I think we can pretty much conclude that we're *ALL* REALLY stuffed this time

    To be honest, I am not sure who have been running this country anyway!
