So no matter who wins on 7 May, and whatever kind of government the would-be-politicians manage to cobble together, it is a decision-making moment for me because it is healthier than in those countries where the incumbent leader "expects" no less than 95% of the votes in his favour. And woe betide anybody who dares to think or say otherwise!
I walk past the cashier, feeling his malicious glance pierce the back of my neck. As I hand my friend Munchy a pack of Pot Noodles, an accusative, "ar...
No one really knows whether David Cameron or Ed Miliband will be the next British prime minister. And anyone who says they do is probably making it up. With that in mind, here are seven things everyone should understand about the campaign and election night.
It is no secret that this very moment is perhaps the most fortunate time to start a business in recent times, in Britain.
It has taken a lot to get here, the heartbreak and confusion, a crisis in my being. However, I finally feel as if society is at a point to accept me for who I am, that I can look myself in the eye and say: I am who I am... I am an Ed Miliband fan.
The relationship between the Conservative party and Britain's ethnic minority community has always been strained. Following the coalition between the ...
To those politicians who have ignored the young people of Wales in this election: we tell you now that we will stand and be counted like Nye Bevan, we will have youth democracy like there is across the UK and that we will make sure we succeed in our mission; which should be yours - in giving young people a voice.
It is hardly surprising that people fear for the future of the NHS under the Tories... That is why Labour is committed to repealing David Cameron's NHS privatisation plans and putting the right values back at the heart of the health service.
In a desperate bid to show himself as an influential player on the world stage, he recently claimed that his opposition to the US-led airstrikes against the Syrian regime, in response to Assad's use of chemical weapons, as a major foreign policy success. What Miliband does not know is that nobody takes him seriously and that his foreign policy 'success' will have no impact on the results of the British election.
Still undecided about where to make your mark on May 7th? Local politics has inevitably been eclipsed in the run up to Thursday by close scrutiny of t...
Overall, the parties have some way to go to find imaginative and creative solutions to one of the greatest challenges for the next government, and the poorest people in the UK will suffer most as a result.
I would advise Dave, Ed, Nick and co to listen to Liv and give us under 18's the right to vote. If the voting age isn't reduced to 16 then perhaps an official way to gauge the opinions of under 18's would be a good idea. At least then it would allow us to have our views recognised.
The convergence of the UK party manifestos on religious freedom is a positive development for sure. But to translate this domestic political pressure into effective foreign policy, the government should fold religious freedom promotion into a broader strategy of understanding and engaging religion in international affairs.
It might have been Lenin, who is often quoted as saying (although I can find no reliable source): "A lie told often enough becomes the truth." Who would have thought that, deep down, when he's not being all pumped up with new-found passion, David Cameron might well be a secret Leninist?
David Cameron, Ed Miliband and all the other party leaders will be jostling for voters' final decisions over the coming week in the lead-up to 7 May but on social media, one of their key communications tools, I feel they've got it all wrong.
This week I have written to Ed Miliband, calling on him to guarantee the status of England's existing 164 grammar schools in the event he becomes Prime Minister. Why? Because a new poll conducted by ComRes has found four in ten (39 per cent) believe Labour will axe the remaining grammar schools if they win the election.
