It is not all plain sailing for Ukip. Expectations of "what good looks like" on 7 May are so much higher. It takes time to become skilled at running local campaigns on the ground. There are questions about whether the Party has strength in depth, both nationally and locally.
In case you hadn't heard, there are less than three weeks to go until the closest run UK General Election in living memory and the best computational algorithms can't predict the makeup of the next government. The parties have all now launched their manifestos, but which party promises the most for the UK's tech industry?
If Miliband - the weak, sex-crazed, fratricidal lunatic - can achieve this, then he might do quite well when Britons make their way to the ballot box in a few weeks' time.
The hottest day of the year so far was a fitting backdrop to a debate that had the potential to be one of the most heated of the election campaign...
With the countdown to the UK election now truly underway, how successful have party leaders been in gaining the nation's trust? Do you know if the candidates you vote for are in line with your moral compass?
On Tuesday we launched the Green Party of England and Wales 2015 general election manifesto: 'For the Common Good'. It is shaped by our vision of a future Britain, and our principles and values which say that no one in this, the world's sixth richest economy, should fear not being able to put food on table, or pay the bills that keep a roof over their head. It is shaped by a politics founded in humanity. We want to create a Britain that cares. But it is also based on a fundamental principle that the other parties deny and ignore: the need for us to build a stable and sustainable society that protects our planet now and for future generations.
Umunna follows the well-worn path of Labour politicians who have given up anti-nuclear views as the prospect of power comes in sight: Neil Kinnock, John Prescott, Margaret Becket - the list goes on. Even Tony Blair was a member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) in the eighties.
We've hit the part of the General Election campaign that really starts to get on my nerves. The funny thing is, I genuinely think this vote could be one of the most interesting in the UK's history, given how disillusionment with large swathes of the political spectrum has resulted in no one party looking capable of gaining an overall majority...
While the referendum has undoubtedly crystallised and possibly accelerated Labour's decline north of the border, the origins of that decline go back much further... It is clear that, for the second year running, Scotland may be at the epi-centre of the country's biggest political event.
The future is a funny old thing. That word has been thrown around so often during the tiresome back and forth of this campaign that it's lost all meaning, blending into the dull humming noise that the election has become.
The amount of data that government agencies has is enormous. It is not a massive leap for this to be used to place on the electoral register those deemed eligible to vote.... If Labour wins the general election we will begin working on plans on how we can introduce automatic voter registration. But before then, we're stuck with the current system.
Increasing NHS funding by £3billion, £8billion, £Xbillion - lovely. But where is it going to be spent? Will it be a repeat of the winter pressures funding where hardly any actually got to struggling A&E departments and GP surgeries? Another round of reorganisation will soak the whole lot up.
I suspect what my friend would most like is to be able to vote Lib Dem again and see a post-election coalition made up of Labour and Lib Dem MPs, maybe with external SNP support. But she knows that for that to happen, there will have to be more Labour MPs, and there won't be unless enough people vote Labour.
If we inform our lives at our convenience through technology, and our primary news channel is no longer managed by the traditional broadcasting corporations but has shifted to our rapid social news feeds, then how do we engage future generations in the meatier topics of economics and politics?
Confronted, when in power, by EU moves towards further integration and the difficulty in getting any reform programme to achieve anything, should the Labour Party reconsider its position on holding a referendum?
Social media allows people to have their say on the subject of immigration and that's a good thing... But we must handle the views expressed here with caution as they are not necessarily reflective of the population as a whole.
