Bloomberg: U.K. Heading for ‘Hung Parliament,’ Third Poll in a Month Shows

Currently polls indicate that no party will have a majority. If the UK voters don't fall into line pretty quick they will literallly pay the consequences. Expect more of this as the election draws closer. I think the Tories, quiet as they are, must realise that this allows them a certain lassitude on not coming clear with their plans.

Seriously, would you really want to be a member of a government voted in to fix this current mess?

You will be hated, an easy target for an opposition that doesn't have to make hard decisions. The bond markets will tie your hands. Brussels' red tape will tie your feet. The Home-Ownerists will be testing a guillotine outside the Banqueting House in Whitehall. Unemployment will soar. The bankers won't like your medicine. Scotland will start threatening to leave again in a serious way. It'll be wartime austerity imposed by the market, without even a worthy cause to give you spirit, but at least without the doodlebugs crashing into London.

Wouldn't it be better to have a hung parliament and a National Government, probably with poor Vince Cable getting the Exchequer so both big parties can push him overboard and blame the Lib Dems for all the tears?
