Maybe I'm getting cynical, I was expecting a cam-style nsfw image on the hung parliament link, showcasing some well-endowed MP candidates or something.
Elect a well-hung parliament - big balls for all.
dinner is at ti couz, a creperie in the mission. you and others would be welcome to crash dinner (although i'm only paying for dinner for the volunteers. :))
my suggestion would be to plan on meeting at zeitgeist around 7.30-8 for drinking.If television is a babysitter, the internet is a drunk librarian who won't shut up.

Not all hung parliaments are equal: in a hung parliament where the Tories have more seats than Labour and the Lib Dems combined, they're realistically either going to be a minority government or the dominant party in a coalition.
Forgetting swings for the moment and looking at poll leads instead, according to this comment:
Tory lead of 11% or more = Tory majority
Tory lead of 7% - 11% = Tory minority government or coalition
Tory lead of 4% - 7% = Lib Dems can put either Labour or Conservatives in power
Tory lead of under 4% = Labour minority government or coalition
Last ten poll leads:

There seem to be more Labour/Tory than Labour/Lib Dem marginals, so swings to the Tories hurt Labour more.--It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?
