General Election debate 2015
Whatever the result on May 7th, the implications for British politics will be huge.

They will be unpicking the implications for the future of British politics.
General Election questions
Is it fair, for example, that a load of Scots who want to leave the Union should have so much sway over the rest of the country? Will a break-up of the Union be inevitable? How long will any minority government, reliant on querulous smaller parties, be able to survive? Is this the death rattle of the two-party political system we can hear? And if so, do we need fundamental reform of our electoral system?
