Come on Dave

Postby SmoggyFever » Thu Apr 22, 2010 4:07 pm

Winner of 2nd TV Debate Based on ICM Poll data : David Cameron Win @ 2.37

There's a very good reason that tonight, Gordon Brown is 15/2. That is because tonight it is all about foreign policy.
Short of crawling up America's arse, we have no independent foreign policy and that was Blair's fault, and now it's Brown's fault.

Nick Clegg is still favourite to win this debate despite his recent taxi incident, but we know that he will shrug this off successfully because his speaking skills are very good.

Cameron however, has to shine. He was not as bad as Brown in the first one, but not as good as Clegg. Tonight he has to assume the role we need from a leader and i think he will.
Foreign policy is also the Lib Dems weak spot i believe.

Come on Dave, we need this one :hope:

We do indeed. The country is gonna disintegrate if we have a hung parliament. Things are gonna become so messy as I cant really see any of them working together that well. Cameron really didnt perform badly in first debate, was amazed at the polls, but looking at peoples facebooks etc its clear many people will always be anti-conservative cos of the past. I suspect his high rating was largely due to the fact he wasnt tory or labour than him being utterly amazing.

I think Lib Dems policies will unravel now that people have started warming to them and the other parties start to attack now that the public have started to think they are not an irrelevancy. People seem to prefer style over substance.

Yes agree, I think Clegg is getting boring already. "Old parties" "save 100 billion on trident," not sure he has much left to say! Apart from wanting the UK to join the euro, which I dont think will go down too well with the viewers.

Welcome to post 4 in the OLBG Elect David thread

Everybody has voted for David

Will Gordon face eviction on may 6th.

Has Nick any policies that will keep him in the house.

Donkey. :? :? :?

I am not sure what's going on here? is this a betting site or a political forum?

I'll start a poll in the special bets forum tomorrow about The UK General Election, There may well be one be one already but is it unbiased? I don't even know if there is one.

I do know that a lot of the people don't really care because it has no bearing on their country. But, a lot of the people here it does.

The betting angle is great, the personal views are not.

A Tory fan :? in Aberdeen :shock:

I wont get involved in the debate as I fled the UK many years ago. But having moved to a country with proportional representation and frequent hung/suspended parliaments it is ironic that thats what the UK will probably go for if no party gets overall control this time. Good luck :lol:

In a post-debate poll, for The Sun, 36% of viewers said Mr Cameron won, with 32% for Mr Clegg and 29% for Mr Brown.
Mr Brown was up 10% on last week's YouGov instant poll, Mr Cameron up 7% and Mr Clegg down 19%.
Hopefully thats a good indication of the official result :)

Clegg way down, looks like the 2 scandals hurt him as well.

Alfie,

I have heard that in Holland they have a well, Hung parliament. more often than the uk.
How is it out there, I don't understand proportional representation, is it a peeing contest, or a "My dadd's bigger than your's". ???

I don't know.

I dont understand european politics, I have no idea how you get cheese from a sheep.

Maybe I am just thick.

Donkey. :hope: :win: :hope:

A Tory fan in Aberdeen


I'm from just inside the North Yorkshire boundary with Middlesbrough. So i'm right wing, and William Hague is my MP, i like the guy.

I just go to Uni in Aberdeen, a lot of students here are desperate for change, problem is, there will be a split between tory and lib dem.

Are we thinking Cameron won that one then? No idea when the official result comes out

Donkey, as i understand it, proportional representation means every vote counts literally.

We have this seat system where seats determine who run parliament. I think that's a stupid way, but anyone please correct me if i'm wrong, i'm not that clued up about that side of politics

The third and final debate should be the best and most lively, Gordon Brown knows he needs a lionel messi performance to win the General Election. He has nothing to lose trailing so badly.

Forget his smarmy, over confident, I'd-say-anything-to-get-in-power attitude, we shouldn't vote Cameron based solely on his idiotic history with bicycles - click here

Beyond stupid:
Mr Cameron, 41, had placed the chain through the bike's wheel and around a 2ft bollard – allowing the thieves to simply lift both the bicycle and the lock clear.
Trying to show everyone how environmentally concerned he is:
He has often been shown cycling to the Commons, but two years ago it was revealed that his chauffeur-driven car followed him, carrying his work shoes, briefcase and a clean shirt.
Too important to adhere to traffic laws:
In March, he apologised after being filmed ignoring red lights and cycling the wrong way up a one-way street.

Don't get me wrong, I think they're all liars, thieves and scumbags, the difference is I think Cameron believes he's entitled to be one! There's only one sensible vote - "Anyone but Cameron!".
