    Today is the UK Election for the next Prime Minister.

    According to the bookies 'Our Tony' is 100 to 1 ON to win. First time since I became 18 many years ago that I have not voted in an election, but if I could Labour would get it, never voted any other way.

    Vote in the poll if you are from the UK or not - we did the same for the US Election and we got it right.

    Results start to come in at 10:45pm UK time tomorrow so I wil be glued to the internet from 4:45pm Cancun time.

    Come on you reds!

    Hi Steve

    Well I've got my voting card ready and all I can say is I hope that its NOT Michael Howard!! I can't think of anything worse for our country - no matter what peoples opinion of Mr Blair are surely they must realise that he would be worse!!

    Fingers crossed!!

    This Election....

    ....I am not from the UK ..but I want Steve the site owner to win.....
    Seems to me that if he can run this board he's more than qualified to solve the U.K.'s problems....His first action if elected would be to move everyone to Cancun..... :lol:

    Tony Blair is the Labour Party. Michael Howard is the Conservative Party (same party as Mad Maggie Thatcher *spit*). Charles Kennedy is the third main candidate, from the Liberal Democrats

    As it stands with results coming in thick and fast Labour have 186 seats, Conservatives 29, and Lib Dems 19.

    There are 646 seats total so first to 324 wins as they will then have more than 50%. How many over 324 will determine how strong the government is. Current term is a Labour majority of 160, with exit poll predictions suggesting this will be cut by a 100 or so.
