Particularly for UK Hubbers. Woud you have preferred a Re-Election as hundreds couldn't vote?
.... and at the moment there is a lot of uncertainty - what with Clegg and Cameron having private talks.
I think is was unfortunate that many of the electorate did not get a chance to vote but to have a re-election would not be the answer. We ended up with a hung parliament and I believe they have gone in the right direction and according to protocol by forming a coalition party. I think we should wait and see what the Tory/LibDems are going to do in order to get the UK back up and running.
Lady E, we'll be watching very closely what happens in UK politics as we have an election looming here in Australia at end of year. I certainly hope Clegg et al can help the UK sort out some of the problems, they certainly seem confident enough - they were on our news tonight.
I would love to see a re election because whilst listening to election talk on the tv between a member of parliament and an interviewer at the start of the election campaign, there was talk of a hung parliament way back then. My question is how can they predict a hung parliament way before the votes were counted? There is something going on here that reaks of foul play- conspiracy theory aside- i would welcome a re election but alas i dont think thats going to happen.
I hope you will take a look at my hub on the coalition topic, especially as 7 days have now passed since your hub was written. I am quite sure that a few hundred votes at a handful of polling stations would make no difference whatsoever. I am not aware of any of those being in marginal seats.
And as for those who propogate the conspiracy theories . . .PLEASE! give us all a break from that sort of nonsense.
I think it might be worth considering one contributory factor about those queues . . . . people couldn't organize themselves to get to the polling stations on time. They all knew, as do we all, that voting closes at 10pm so really, people should be bothered to turn up in time to vote.
I am sure that if about 300 people turned up at a pub 10 minutes before last orders then they wouldn't be served!
Anyway, please check out the hub:

I voted last Saturday, Florida's first day of early voting. It ends tomorrow at 7. Our Republican governor cut our early voting days in half this year, and said no to a request from Florida Democrats to extend early voting one more day. As it looks now, nearly 3.5 million have...

Dear Hubbers, Some of the political threads are getting pretty mean. No, I'm not a mod, and I've never reported anyone on the forums, nor do I plan to do so in the future. We're all adults here, but some of us aren't acting as such. I've seen it from both sides. It saddens me to see hubbers who...

Perhaps the saddest thing I see on a regular basis on HubPages is the effort of foreign HubPages members with limited English to establish a readership for their hubs. Too often I come across hubbers whose intentions are clearly very sincere and genuine and who may have very worthwhile things to...

Do you feel there is a set of standards or common decency humor should follow?

....soonest it will be; why did they kick out the British PM - what's his name again? Gordon Brown. I have been following the British election with some amount of attention but I still don't get why a serving PM is about get kicked out through the votes (atleast with all indices, polls and...

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...
