Oliver Coppard to win sheffield hallam?

Recommended Posts

No, it was mainly spent on increasing the welfare state budget.

 

Which had to be increased following 18 years of the tories running welfare into the ground which is why they were eventually kicked out in 97 by a landslide. The same will happen again

:) Nick will go but at least he saved Hallam from Labour.

Difficult one that. Nick can't resign the seat because if he did it could revert to Tory as much as Labour. LibDems unlikely to win next time whenever the next vote. No incentive for LibDems to have any sort of election, nationally or locally, for some time.

Labour kept out of Hallam, Tory government nationally, I'd call that a result. Tactical voting by Hallam Tories has worked.

 

It is difficult to imagine it getting much better. Clegg is our MP. Wallace has proved to be the dead weight everyone said he was. George Galloway out on his ear. The Tories even have a Scottish MP.

 

But of course the bonus is the boundary changes can now be implemented. It will be a very different election in 2020.

Pity, it's an own goal.

 

I think you will find that it is seat that was prevented from falling to Labour.

 

I have to laugh at the 5 years of attacks made by Labour as they tried to destroy the Libdems. I wonder if it actually occured to them that the Tories stood to gain far more seats from the Libdems than Labour ever could. :hihi:

I think the other problem is there aren't any of the big guns left to take over. I wonder who Labour will find to replace Miliband.

Errrr. He's not going to be the deputy PM, let alone leader for what's left of the Lib Dems. You've voted in a lame duck as an Mp who is likely to quit soon and retire to France with his wife.

 

Spot on. Gutted. Hope the tories that voted Lib Dem are proud of themselves.

Im pleased for you. Personally the thought of voting for someone I didnt actually believe in negates the whole process and morally I couldnt do it....but if you guys want to win by cheating oh sorry I mean 'being tactical' so be it!

Didn't lots of Labour supporters vote for Clegg in the last election to keep the Tories out? Maybe Labour has reaped what it sowed in Hallam?
