Your bio says that you are 39, does that make you old enough to empathise? You seem to think that because I'm British and 17, I can't care about 9/11 It doesn't matter whether it is half a world away as with today's media coverage nothing goes amiss. I was in school when i heard the news and the teacher instantly put the TV on. All British TV stations were covering the event.

With the General Election looming who does everyone think will win?

In response to that....



In all seriousness, I expect a Conservative victory, seemingly despite the best efforts of their strategists to lose it. I did like the above poster though, it's an effective response to the Labour one and shows a willingness to poke fun, something horribly lacking from what's been an extraodinarly dull campaign so far.

that is fantastic. It is a strange one both parties seem to be trying to lose the election rather than win it. Although most people believe the Conservatives will win, I can't see any party having a majority. Labour will obviously lose a lot of seats yet the Conservatives haven't, in my opinion, done enough to win a majority.

The Conservatives have been too crippled by fear to try and win it. Labour on the other hand keep showing their incompetence in their attempts to win.

At the end of the day though the Tories will win, and I'll bet they'll get their majority. There is the weird phenomenon witrh the Tories is that the public very rarely publically gets behind the Tories. But its usually the case when the public appear to be teetering that the Conservatives win comfortably. And I suspect they will; idealistic allegiances go out of the window when people are fed up (whether they say so or not).

I suspect a Tory win, but one by default (people are voting to oust Brown and co. rather than actively supporting Cameron and his cronies). We still don't know what any of these Tory soundbites actually mean, or what the party intend to do with their tenure in power.

I, by the way am a traditional Labour supporter, but i'll be voting for an independant this year.

Anyone have a link to the Chancellors debate? I missed it.

Osborne scares me immensely, I think he would be a disaster for the economy.
