The UK votes tomorrow. On The Guardian front page:
Preliminary results of final Guardian/ICM campaign poll shows Labour and Conservatives tied at 35% each
A hung Parliament is predicted, and the UK enters uncharted warters, guided only by a cabinet manual. Essential background reading from The Guardian:
From the SNP piece:
A campaign that never promised a winner has dragged itself to a climax. David Cameron looks done for on the numbers but in the atmosphere of stalemate and bravado in these last days, that does not seem to mean he will leave No 10.
He is being urged to hole up in there, like the hero of a Hollywood siege, no matter what the voters decide. For his anxious backers, the prime minister is a man born to rule and born to stay.
Add England to the list of countries that needs to get used to the idea that the “biggest” party (by whatever margin) doesn’t necessarily form a government.
