Today's British General Election



As my friends know, I'm an election junkie. Yet I'm not enamored with any of the three main parties - Conservative, Labour, and Liberal Democrat - all of whom are distinguished by their scarcely concealed contempt for large sections of the electorate. That said, as a veteran observer of British general elections - this is the thirteenth that I have followed closely - I shall be watching the results online. If any readers are sufficiently interested in what is happening in the UK, I suggest you go here, here, here, and here to make some sense of what is a rather complicated story. And if anyone is interested in my prognostications, I'll stick to my hunch when the election was announced that the Tories - that's the Conservatives - will win an absolute majority of seats in the House of Commons. Of course, as political theater, a hung Parliament would be more interesting. And, indeed, that is what the polls forecast.
