Cameron wins Best in Number 10



"I have a tiny majority but my wife still loves me"
All hail the outright winner of Best in Number 10, David Cameron.

Cameron squeaked home this morning being able to form his own government and kicking Liberals to the kerb.  He no longer needs them, nor does the rest of the country it seems as they look set to pick up just 8 seats in total.

Don't forget your pledge Dave.  An In/Out Referendum on Europe in 2017.

Vote now: Best in Number 10



With less than a week to go before the General Election in the UK, our poll here in London City is far from reflecting the real life current trend.   The community is watching this with interest.

The real life polls have no clear winner, with Conservatives ever so slightly in the lead, but still needing to form a coalition in order to form a government.

The London City poll has Labour out in front (dream on Ed) and UKIP close behind.  "Others" are in third place, presumably the SNP and  Welsh Plaid Cymru Party with a smattering of Green votes. Bizarrely at the bottom of our poll is Conservatives with the Liberals doing marginally better.

In our poll, the UK Independence Party very much holds the balance of power being able to form a government with any of the main parties.  Of course this could never happen in real life due to our strange seat allocation system in the House Of Commons, where UKIP could do better than any other party but still get far less seats.

It does seem that this election will see the very same people returned to power for another five years, with perhaps a referendum sometime between now and death.  More likely than a referendum, is that we shall all be singing the Anthem of the European Union and waving their flag instead of our own, as the next boat load of people from Europe arrive on our shores and uncontrolled immigration is allowed to continue.  Depending on where from Europe you come from, the streets of London can truly be paved with gold.

Sing along now...



There is of course still two full days of campaigning before the big day itself and if you have not voted already, please come on over and select who you think would be "Best in Number 10".
