The Polls are on the way down?


Concern is starting to creep into the Tory camp after a series of polls showed them under the decisive 40 point mark. This can only be a good thing. Governments with huge majorities just do what they want and take no other party, or opinion, into the equation.

A hung parliament is the ideal, proportional, representation of the public. It means politicians have to work together and concede policies from other parties. This gives greater representation to the voters who only poll 20 per cent or less, but then may end up having the same level of influence over government policy, hence truly democratic.

Huge majorities for any party are effectively a dictatorship, the government dictates, the party rubber stamps. No debate, no democracy (well every five years), no representation.
