Now, with the finish in sight, the leaders of other parties resort to scare tactics, urging us to come out and vote for fear of letting the other side in. They have a long way to go, to judge by the latest poll from NotmeGuv, exclusive (of course) to these pages.
Unlike all its rivals, NotmeGuv covers the field. It seeks to reflect the intention of every potential elector and does not confine its results to the dwindling majority who still intend to vote. Nullists first, it says, and the rest nowhere:
Lib. Dem. 15%
Others 5%©NotmeGuv, 2005
If this pattern is replicated on Thursday, the people will not have spoken but they will have made their point all the same. None of the above, they must fear, will pay attention for long.
