Tomorrow, voters go to the polls in the closest election for four decades.
Labour’s collapse in Scotland means Ed Miliband will almost certainly miss out on the 323 seats needed for a majority.
For millions, the nightmare is a minority Labour administration propped up by the SNP — which is demanding a £148billion debt binge to pay for more spending and welfare.
Here, JAMES SLACK and IAN DRURY detail the 50 seats in which tactical voting could prevent a Labour/SNP alliance having enough to run Britain — and keep Red Ed out of No. 10.

In all the seats outside Scotland, they are constituencies in which Labour is either first or second and desperately needs to win. Crucial to the success of tactical voting is reuniting the conservative Right.
There are 29 seats where the Tories have a vastly improved chance of success if they can win the support of Ukip sympathisers.
There are also two Labour seats in the North of England where Cameron’s party cannot realistically win — but Ukip can, so Tory sympathisers should vote for Nigel Farage’s party.
If the Tories do fall short of an overall majority, ensuring Lib Dem candidates beat Labour rivals increases the chances of Nick Clegg’s party having enough seats to form another Coalition with the Tories.
There are 12 seats where Tory voters can help the Liberal Democrats beat Labour. The Lib Dems can reciprocate by voting Tory in three Conservative/Labour marginals.
And there are four seats where Lib Dem and Ukip supporters could vote blue to defeat Labour . . .
Revealed: How Miliband could grab power even if he loses the election by winning fewer votes AND seats than Cameron
The party with the most MPs almost always forms the government
But the surge of the Scottish nationalists has turned this on its head
The SNP has vowed to work with Labour to ‘lock’ the Tories out of power
It means Cameron could finish first but not have enough MPs to stay on
Labour’s Andy Burnham this morning admitted the party would ‘do whatever it takes’ to get Mr Miliband into Downing Street
But the Chancellor George Osborne insisted the PM could stay in position even if the Coalition lost its majority on Thursday
Election propaganda has over taken the Daily Mail Newspaper, personal attacks they may or may not be true are being used to help their panicking Conservative friends. The following headlines and cut out of the Daily Mail are examples of this.
Russell Brand is a misogynist who hurt and abused me says his ex-girlfriend – who labels Ed Miliband a fool for getting into bed with him
Jordan Martin says Brand cares about himself and world domination
Former model claims he was controlling and manipulative
She says she felt mentally bullied and abused by the comedian
In a interview on Russell Brand’s YouTube channel Ed Miliband insisted that he will take on bankers and multinational corporations but he also insisted that change is a slow process and warned that people should be patient. The interview was interesting to watch but too short and Russell Brand could have asked more pressing questions in my opinion, like when Ed Miliband insisted that the bank bail out was necessary, I believe Russell Brand should have bought up the fact that the bank bail out came with no extra regulation of the banks and he should have asked what other options there were? Couldn’t the government simply buy the banks and take them over instead of bailing them out?
Ed Miliband and Labour claim to be different from the Tories and there are small differences in their policies but Rupurt Murdoch’s news corporation paid almost NO tax in Britain throughout the reign of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, as did other multinational corporations. As for Ed Miliband claiming “change takes time” it did not take the Conservative and Lib Dem coalition time to start cutting benefits and public services, as it did not take them long to cut the top rate of tax, so how long will it take Ed Miliband to bring his policies into effect?
Labour allowed the same kind of corporate tax evasion and unregulated banks as the Conservatives did, is Ed Miliband really going to change that? I hope Ed Miliband proves me wrong but I doubt it and even if he does, he would have the whole of the corporate media attacking him daily after five years people would begin to believe we need “change” and up steps Boris Johnson and a “new” Conservative government and Britain goes back to square one. If Britain want real change we have too change the way we think and be aware that the corporate media do not represent “the people.”
ED MILIBAND WILL TAKE ON BANKERS, CORPORATIONS AND THE ELITE?
If Ed Miliband is really going to fight the powers that be we should embrace him and give him a chance to do it, tax loopholes should be removed and some kind of genuine attempt to cap lobbying to help prevent businesses and the rich individuals paying for policies. Labour should hit the upper classes as hard as the Conservatives hit the lower classes in their reign.
Labour’s big weakness according to the mainstream media is the economy, we must have a strong economy the media tell us, but what most people do not realize is, the economy is actually mainly based on corporate profit therefore a good economy does not impact the people, the country could have a strong economy but still suffer from low living standards or a country could have a weak economy but living standards could be much higher. Low wages and low workers rights can actually led to a strong economy as can slavery, why should “the people” care about corporate profit? “The people” should care and vote based on policies that represent and help “the people” not on policies that help corporations and rich individuals avoid paying tax and fair wages.
I believe Ed Miliband is the slightly better of the two but unfortunately for him and for Britain, even if he is elected he is probably going to be pretty powerless and not bring the sort of change that people want, and up steps Boris Johnson! He is funny, different, silly and ridiculous but also and I hate to admit it, he is likable, man Britain is fucked.
Ed Miliband also guaranteed there would be no deal with the SNP! If Tories win and Scotland have SNP in 55 of their 59 consistences (as predicted by most polls, some polls predict more), how is Scotland not Independent?
On the 20th October 2011 Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi more commonly known as Colonel Gaddafi was killed and the Libyan people were freed of an oppressive dictatorship. The oppressive dictatorship of Gaddafi offered free health care, government grants for marriage and children and a free education system that put Libya top of the literacy league tables in the whole of Africa. The oppressive dictatorship of Gaddafi also left Libya with a national debt of between zero and five billion pound depending on what source you use compared to Britain’s debt of one and half trillion pound and America’s 18 trillion dollars, Libya had state owned banks therefore the Libya government controlled the banks this allowed Libya to print interest free money unlike Britain and USA there banks are essentially corporations that charge huge interest on printed money that is at least part of the reason that so many countries have huge deficits.
Team Great Britain and USA to the rescue “we will free the Libyan people” David Cameron told the British TV audience and as usual we lapped it up, “people are dying in the streets” David Cameron said. The disgusting British media celebrated his death “that’s for Lockerbie” Rupert Murdoch’s Zionist loving and propagating the Sun newspaper declared. “The people of Libya are saved” we were told, than Libya disappears from the news completely not a mention.
Weeks before the general election 2015 in Britain and the Libyan war comes back to remind us of the impact that governments in Britain and USA have on the world as hundreds of migrants drowned in a desperate attempt to flee recently liberated Libya.
The British voter and taxpayer should be asking a few questions about the Libyan migrants drowning, questions that the mainstream media will completely ignore as they will be too busy talking about some celebrities private life or rating how good celebrities look in bikini’s or something along those lines.
How bad of a state is Libya since the “liberation of the Libyan people” and the death of an “evil and cowardly” dictator as described by the British media for people of Libya that have families and children to even consider getting on one of them boats?
How much to blame are our elected government’s that insisted the Libyan war was a humanitarian mission?
Would this be happening if Great Britain, USA and NATO stayed out of Libya?
Were people ever this desperate to escape Libya under Gaddafi? Have we just taken the treasure and ran?
Independence, Kingdom of Libya and Libya under Gaddafi
On 24 December 1951, Libya declared its independence as the United Kingdom of Libya, a constitutional and hereditary monarchy under King Idris, Libya’s only monarch. The discovery of significant oil reserves in 1959 and the subsequent income from petroleum sales enabled one of the world’s poorest nations to establish an extremely wealthy state. Although oil drastically improved the Libyan government’s finances, resentment among some factions began to build over the increased concentration of the nation’s wealth in the hands of King Idris.
On 2 March 1977, Libya officially became the “Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya”. Gaddafi officially passed power to the General People’s Committees and henceforth claimed to be no more than a symbolic figurehead. Dissidence against the new system was not tolerated. At around the same time the Jamahiriya was established, Gaddafi authorized the execution of twenty-two officers who had participated in a 1975 attempted military coup, in addition to the execution of several civilians. The new “jamahiriya” governance structure he established was officially referred to as “direct democracy”, though the government refused to publish election results.
Libya’s system of governance during the Jamahiriya era was based on Gaddafi’s theories outlined in his The Green Book, published in 1975. Under the Jamahiriya system, political issues for debate were raised at local level around the country, convened by any one of about 2,000 local “people’s committees”. The committees would then pass their votes to a central general committee formed by elected members, where votes at the local congresses would finally influence the outcomes of national decisions.
From 1977 onward, per capita income in the country rose to more than US $11,000, the fifth-highest in Africa, while the Human Development Index became the highest in Africa and greater than that of Saudi Arabia. This was achieved without borrowing any foreign loans, keeping Libya debt-free. The Great Manmade River was also built to allow free access to fresh water across large parts of the country. In addition, financial support was provided for university scholarships and employment programs.
Much of the country’s income from oil, which soared in the 1970s, was spent on arms purchases and on sponsoring dozens of paramilitaries and terrorist groups around the world.An American airstrike failed to kill Gaddafi in 1986. Libya was finally put under United Nations sanctions after the bombing of a commercial flight killed hundreds of travellers.
A gathering of more than 200 African kings and traditional rulers, meeting on 27 August 2008 in the Libyan town of Benghazi, conferred on Colonel Gaddafi the title “King of Kings of Africa”. Sheikh Abdilmajid of Tanzania said traditional rulers were more influential in Africa than their respective governments.
After the Arab Spring movements overturned the rulers of Tunisia and Egypt, Libya experienced a full-scale revolt beginning on 17 February 2011. By 20 February, the unrest had spread to Tripoli. On 27 February 2011, the National Transitional Council was established to administer the areas of Libya under rebel control. On 10 March 2011, France became the first state to officially recognise the council as the legitimate representative of the Libyan people.
Pro-Gaddafi forces were able to respond militarily to rebel pushes in Western Libya and launched a counterattack along the coast toward Benghazi, the de facto centre of the uprising. The town of Zawiya, 48 kilometres (30 mi) from Tripoli, was bombarded by air force planes and army tanks and seized by Jamahiriya troops, “exercising a level of brutality not yet seen in the conflict.”
On 17 March 2011 the UN Security Council passed Resolution 1973, with a 10–0 vote and five abstentions including Russia, China and Germany. The resolution sanctioned the establishment of a no-fly zone and the use of “all means necessary” to protect civilians within Libya. On 19 March, the first act of NATO allies to secure the no-fly zone by destroying Libyan air defences began when French military jets entered Libyan airspace on a reconnaissance mission heralding attacks on enemy targets. In the weeks that followed, American forces were in the forefront of NATO operations against Libya. More than 8,000 American personnel in warships and aircraft were deployed in the area. At least 3,000 targets were struck in 14,202 strike sorties, 716 of them in Tripoli and 492 in Brega. The American air offensive included flights of B-2 Stealth bombers, each bomber armed with sixteen 2000-pound bombs, flying out of and returning to their base in Missouri on the continental United States. Clearly the support provided by the NATO airforces was pivotal in the ultimate success of the revolution.
By 22 August 2011, rebel fighters had entered Tripoli and occupied Green Square, which they renamed Martyrs’ Square in honour of those killed since 17 February 2011. On 20 October 2011 the last heavy fighting of the uprising came to an end in the city of Sirte, where Gadhafi was captured and killed. The defeat of loyalist forces was celebrated on 23 October 2011, three days after the fall of Sirte.
At least 30,000 Libyans died in the civil war.
As you probably already know I am very interested in politics but this general election is boring, not enough T.V debates, has anyone else noticed that the politicians seem reluctant to engage with members of public? I think they are starting to realize that the only people that take them seriously and still respect British politics and politicians are the ignorant, the stupid and the old and that is mainly due to the fact that older people tend to not be online and therefore they are restricted to the biased mainstream media for information and looking at the mainstream media for information usually leads to reading government approved propaganda.
The rest of us are living in the age of information, we can learn almost anything we want without leaving our living rooms this is bad news for the political elite. Anyone that cares enough to read or learn about the way our government work, can now do it, we know who funds them and therefore who they represent and protect. We know the media is not telling us the truth they are biased and financially and political motivated. That’s why I believe that some politicians have chosen not to interact with unpredictable members of the public for this general election.
I think David Cameron is scared to face people, he posts an Easter message we can not comment on the video and we can not like or dislike the video, why? Because David Cameron does not want to overwhelm and fill his YouTube channel with messages of support? Or because David Cameron does not want to read message after message of abuse and anger aimed at him? I believe it is probably the latter, in fact I would put my life on it! Politicians claim that they want “the people” to be involved in politics, yet they push for internet censorship and anyone that disagrees with them are labelled as “potentially dangerous” leading me to believe they do not want us involved in politics at all, they want us to work, pay taxes, fight wars when they need us and be occupied with family, work, money, T.V, sport, fashion and therefore too busy to think about the governments foreign policy, corporate corruption and freedom of speech.
Video posted a couple of hours ago shows David Cameron bravely shit himself.

GENERAL ELECTION 2015 COMING SOON. Which Israeli supporting, corporate puppet Zionist are you going to vote for?
GENERAL ELECTION 2015 COMING SOON. David Cameron should be aware that it will take more then low petrol prices and a slight improvement in the economy to make people forget that he is a corrupt, untrustworthy, war mongering, snobbish, greedy, lying, PONCE.
Our idiotic, delusional world leaders walk through France holding hands to show unity against terrorism yet about 20000 children die everyday through hunger related illnesses, due to the greed and ignorance of our world leaders and their bosses (BANKERS, CORPS ANYONE WITH RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS OF MONEY)
Ed Miliband and the Labour party have promised not to spend the election build up bashing Tory policies, I would advise against this, because NOBODY in Britain who votes for Ed Miliband will vote for him because they like Ed Miliband, they will vote for him because they hate David Cameron.
