British Jews have never voted as a bloc, and have always made their decisions individually, while in previous parliaments there have been Jewish MPs in all three main parties. It means it is impossible lay down which particular party Jews should support in 2015 - as well as morally inappropriate.
With the launch of general election manifestos this week, many were hoping to see the parties firmly committing to invest in a chronically underfunded social care system. But, sadly, no major party has made a commitment to invest in social care.
Everybody in Britain knows that inequality is rife and that it is rising. This fact forms a backdrop to the election campaign, but no party seems able to talk about it directly and openly. In one sense, there is nothing especially surprising about this.
Some women cannot vote because it is too dangerous for them to sign up to the electoral register: retaining anonymity when signing up to the Electoral Register is complicated - and, in some instances, impossible.
I suspect that I, and others like me who are working for the Time to Change mental health awareness campaign, have many hundreds and thousands of speeches and talks and interviews still to go before we finally bring the walls of taboo and stigma crumbling down. The whisperers are people who come up to me and, unlike those who just want to say thanks for the talk, raise something else, lean in towards me and say very quietly "thanks for talking about mental health and depression, it really helps". It is good that they talk. But bad that they feel the need to whisper.
In the run up to the general elections, talk of the political engagement levels among the younger generation is hot on the tip of many tongues within ...
Something very unusual happened towards the end of the TV debate between the five main opposition party leaders: I learned something I didn't already know. Perhaps I haven't been paying close enough attention, but when Ed Miliband and the SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon were clashing noisily over hypothetical post-election cooperation between their two parties, I suddenly realised: the SNP have no cards to play... After the debate exchanges it seems abundantly clear that the SNP would have little or no power to exert their will over Labour
Nicola Sturgeon, along with Plaid Cymru's Leanne Wood and the Green Party's Natalie Bennett, outlined a vision of hope as an alternative to the conservatism of the mainstream parties, Labour included, who remain prisoners of Thatcherite nostrums to greater or lesser extent.
I don't think it's ever been more important to get out there and use your voice, register your opinion, and vote. The more of us who do, the more important we become, and the more politicians are forced to address the issues that are important to us.
It is true, politicians break promises. We all know this and should probably have worked it out a long time ago. But before starting a student campaign to ruin the Lib Dems, surely it is worth taking a step back and looking at the promises they did deliver on?
As different parts of the country and the economy have grown further apart it becomes easier to bash those you have the least contact with. Familiarity may breed contempt but distance can breed distain... Farage's brand of political nihilism plays on these divisions. The best way of defeating this is of course by standing up to it.
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?
In essence, Mumsnet is everything a brand, political or otherwise, wants in an advocate. Its Mumsnetters are credible, highly engaged and active users of social media, who will happily take your idea and run with it.
It is tempting to hope that the general election on 7 May will sort out Europe's British problem for good. Tempting but wrong. There may well be clarification, and even some terrible over-simplification, but not a resolution.
In a sunny corner of Kent, you hear the F word everywhere at the moment. No, not that one. I'm talking Farage. I visited Ramsgate - shimmering in the beautiful spring sunshine - on Monday to present BBC Radio 5 live Drive there. As we career towards the General Election, the eyes of the country are on South Thanet, because it's where Ukip leader Nigel Farage is making his sixth attempt to become a Westminster MP. He's promised to quit the party's top job if he loses again, but don't forget he's got form for that too - standing aside in 2009 only to return a year later.
