Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Election swinging, of course.
With all the polls about, it seems just about time to share with you my predictions, which are based on a wide number of polls and a patented (not really) formula I’ve created in order to predict the swing in the upcoming election. I intend to make this a regular-ish feature, because as new polls come out the figure will change.
So where does the swingometer lie today?
» 4.39% swing to the Conservatives «
So what would this mean for Mr Blair? Well the news wouldn’t be so bad, actually. He’d still be left with an overall majority of about 70, which wouldn’t be seen as such a bad defeat. And my local constituency would have turned Conservative, too.
I’ll do my best to keep you updated on how this changes as the polls change. But there’s every chance I’ll forget.
