    Time for a MASS BURNING of Take That CDs! :evil:

    Gary Barlow has expressed his backing for the Conservative Party at next month's general election.

    The Take That songwriter joined party leader David Cameron on the campaign trail today at Brine Leas High School, in Nantwich, Cheshire, Fleetwood Weekly News reports.

    The Conservatives unveiled plans for a national 'School Stars' competition to encourage children to take up music.

    When asked if he was supporting the Conservatives at the election, Barlow responded: "I would not be here if I was not."

    He previously performed a rendition of his band's 'Greatest Day' with a backing band of pupils and added: "The future of music is really in this room today, it is in every classroom and school all over Britain."

    What a lovely Green Party Election Broadcast, which probably got a bit overshadowed yesterday, still at least their manifesto ended up being reported in the National news.

    The POLLS have gone CRAZY

    I know you can't take one poll in ISOLATION but the latest YOUGOV is CON 33%, LIB 30%, LAB 28%, which BIZARRELY would mean a hung parliament with LABOUR the LARGEST PARTY

    WACKY DAYS

    Labour really have tipped the balance their way with the constuencies. Majorly.

    Just look at the histories in the election seat calculator above.

    It's the election that could go ANY WAY at the moment. It's all very reality TV and frankly better for it.

    Sunday's polls are also showing Lib Dem support on the rise with ComRes and ICM releasing polls that are largely in line with the YouGov figures. A further YouGov poll tells a similar story, whilst less established (and probably less trustworthy) pollsters such as BPIX and OnePoll actually have the Lib Dems leading. The ICM poll, which shows the Lib Dems on 27, is interesting in the sense that most of the fieldwork was carried out prior to the election debate, which suggests there might be other factors at play here. The big unknown is just how well these figures will hold up. I guess if you wanted a comparative situation you'd go back to 2003 and the aftermath of the Brent East by-election victory when the party briefly hit 31% in the polls before quickly dipping back down again. But in that example the media agenda was inevitably going to move on and deprive the party of further publicity. This time round the prospect of a hung parliament and the promise of further debates to come will ensure that the party remains in the spotlight. Interestingly, it looks as though the Tories are the big losers from the surge, with their figures languishing in the early 30s. If these sort of figures were replicated in a GE Labour would emerge as the biggest party in a hung parliament.

    I watched that entire video VoR. I couldn't work out if they were actually FOR Cameron or not at first. Then I saw that one of them is called Saskia.

    urgh I see Gordon Brown was BORING EVERYONE on Andrew Marr over the weekend, defending his debate by saying he lost on style and presentation only (non shock) and that it occured to him now that the debates were always going to favour style.

    IS THIS MAN LIVING IN THE STONE AGES OR WHAT?

    Can someone please get him a PR department that knows how to teach him what being a party leader is.

    It's ALL style and presentation Gordon. Get with the fucking PROGRAM at least before the whole thing ENDS

    Well he can hardly say "I always knew I would loose out on style but Mandelson said I should do the debates anyway since public opinion of me was so shit already I had nothing to loose."

    I'm no gay activist and I'm becoming more and more of a liberal democrat supporter but how come even they have nothing about gay rights on their manifesto? A whole section on equality for women, for ethnic minorities, for the disabled and for the old - but nothing to ensure equality for gay people. That irks me a little as I think homophobia is far more rife than sexism in this day and age.

    Point is, SO DO I, Indie. But the general British public watch Britain's Got Talent. I don't decide this election, about 40 million people do.

    Like it or not, style and presentation is EVERYTHING. It's why he's LOSING.

    The fact that he is only just cottoned on to this is slightly worrying...

    It's a shame that vbulletin don't have a facility to have polls with radio buttons. Then people could change their mind whenever they wanted to.

    I saw a debate between the top three partys foreign secretarys earlier today and the the lib deb bloke was clearly a complete lightweight compared to David Miliband and William Hague. It pretty much confirmed to me that Nick Clegg might be a viable option but his party ain't.
