Cameron cannot be accused of being a crowd pleaser on marriage. Belief is showing through the PR veneer.

Very funny. Some of the people here need to lighten up.

This is only a forecast HF. Tim could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time :)

Louise, I respect candidates with independent minds. You never appear to do anything other than spout the Cameron line.

Our supermarket sector is ultra competitive. It's a great shame that Nick Herbert is defending the producer interests of farmers against the interests of consumers to squeeze down costs.

Unless there are defections the Tory/UUP coalition won't get close to ten but with defections there must be a chance. You are bang on in worrying about Sinn Fein being main beneficiary of split in unionist vote. That is the nightmare scenario.

Allow me to coin Mikey's law: "Politicians will always do more for the old than the young so long as the old vote in so much greater numbers."

Unless Cameron has a night of the long knives it will be hell to govern a state stuffed with Labour cronies.

We need to be glass half full on this one. There's enough that's good in the policy to hope that Gove will be able to persuade Cameron to be bolder once in office. I suspect Gove secretly agrees with much of what Woodhead says. I also hope that Graham Brady will amend the education bill to allow the establishment of selective schools.

That's a bit like saying flooding has nothing to do with too much rain. Problems in the job and housing markets cannot be disconnected from immigration.

Platitudinous. Cameron needs a wordsmith.

Taking up Tim Montgomerie's concluding sentence: The most reliable weapon in the state's war on crime is the incarceration of persistent offenders and that is why it is so worrying that Dominic Grieve is retreating from Michael Howard's 'prison works' policy.
