    According to NewStatesman they are predicting Labour to take Stafford in the May 2015 General Election by a 0.03% Majority

    I'm curious to know if this would change the way you voted, and what party are you planning to Vote for in Stafford?

    Given that so far in this current Government precisely 100% of all predictions have been wrong...

    I expect a landslide victory for the 'Independent but if you had to push me somewhere between Grayson Perry and Jonathan Meades Party'...

    If you change your vote based on predictions then those predictions are now wrong, this type of coverage just promotes wrong lizard thinking.

    Voting UKIP doesn't make someone a Bigot, I'm voting because I want us to leave the EU, I have no problem with a multicultural society, I just don't want a huge influx of unskilled migrants coming to this country, flooding our public services, I want us to be able to chose who lives here.

    There are bad apples in every party, Just because certain individuals in a party express their views doesn't make that the view of the party or the people who vote for them.
