By 'win' you mean 'who will get the largest majority but still not have enough support from votes to form a non-coalition government'?
bsh1 says2015-04-20T14:22:19.5951240-05:00
@Bblackk - Yes.

You didn't add "Who cares" as an option to reflect voter apathy.
bsh1 says2015-04-20T16:03:41.5598403-05:00
Voter apathy is an idiotic stance.
WNdebater says2015-04-20T17:34:01.3777825-05:00
I wish the BNP had support, but it kind of imploded due to internal disputes. Hatred from the media and government (BNP members can't be teachers, for instance-a clear case of political suppression) kept it from ever gaining enough strength to enter parliment anyway. :(
bsh1 says2015-04-20T17:34:49.0650645-05:00
I am scared at how many people support UKIP.
Heraclitus says2015-04-21T01:08:50.8842989-05:00
UKIP are good
Heraclitus says2015-04-22T01:27:28.6144866-05:00
Oh my God The Green party is second. What has the world come to.
Heraclitus says2015-04-22T01:28:08.6496998-05:00
The Green party want to ban Grouse shooting!! Nooooo!!!!!!!
bsh1 says2015-04-22T12:45:28.1680386-05:00
Why on Earth is banning pointlessly killing animals a bad thing? UKIP is very bad.
Heraclitus says2015-04-22T13:04:38.7734554-05:00
Its not pointless. Grouse is very tasty and very fun to shoot. Actually its the best kind of shooting. Deer stalking is also very fun. UKIP is not bad. How are they bad? Everything they say is sensible and good.
bsh1 says2015-04-22T13:07:05.7588252-05:00
UKIP is just an ill-disguised racist, latently neo-fascist organization.
Heraclitus says2015-04-25T17:43:17.2866531-05:00
That is the exact propaganda politically correct lefties will shove in your ears. Anyone worried about mass immigration is labelled as a racist nowadays. Calling the neo-fascist is definitely a step to far and incredibly innacurate. You could call the BNP that yeh but definitely not UKIP.
