In response to Nick Wood’s Campaign Commentary: The professionalisation of politics has robbed it of its soul, Dan Tubb wrote:
Just going to record my prediction here:
Conservatives largest party but unable to form a government.
Labour will team up with Lib Dems and do a deal with the SNP that they don’t vote on English matters for a number of ill-defined concessions. This brings the number needed for a majority to just under 300.
Cameron is booted out and replaced by Sajid Javid; meetings between him and Nigel Farage ensue.
The new Labour government passes a Queen’s Speech but become dysfunctional very quickly. After an ‘event’ and incessant fighting between Labour/SNP/Lib Dems a second general becomes unavoidable, scheduled for late Autumn.
A formal deal between Ukip and Tories agreed, Tories win general election under Javid.
Cameron and Miliband rightly consigned to history as the low point for British democracy.
