10020 Tory Majority
As a non-Tory, something high enough to create a momentum for Brown's removal, I hope.
Conservative majority of 7,208
Tories win by two votes, but a scandal is found as it is found two of the Tory candiates lamas had been given the vote. So it is thoguht he only won because of two lamas, But then it is found they had voted for labour. But then it is found they had vote for labour because the did not like the tory MP. Animals lovers turn on tory MP forcing him to resign. Tory leader then reigns too.

And long may the Tory leader reign.
ps save the llamas.
Iain, do you include postal votes?No postal votes - Tories, 6.889 majority
With postal votes - Labour, 7 majority (The Khan family made the difference!)
Why can't I predict a UKIP win in your online vote?
DES... point of information... there are more lamas around than you might think. They discourage foxes from attacking lambs.
1,582 to Tories
Travis Bickle Typical top hats making fun of my comprehensive education. You despise the working and middle class you toffs think us poor are just here to clean and polish you shoes, By the way I have postgraduate qualifications so I need no lectures from an oaf like you on edcuation LOL.
Timpson by 3,210. Mugabe duly reports to Westminster on Friday morning.
In an idle moment I averaged the predictions above (disregarding a couple of sillies but including Labour wins). The score:
3419 to the Tories
Let's see how acurate your readers are, Iain. Oh, and that's my prediction for the 100 quid.

Would be nice to believe the press and that no one is voting Labour at all, but I suspect we are starting to get the opposite effect of late in last Tory Govt, where people were embarassed to admit they will vote for Govt.
In the unlikely event of my wining, please donate prize to Save the children.

The don't deserve to win it, mind but Labour deserve to lose it.
4,525 to the Tories
A Timpson win....!
2,897 Vote lead
Tamsin Dunwoody rejected by Wales and now England too. An ignominious end to the memory of Gwyneth.
Conservative victory by 2336 votes by ellan_vannin
I actually make my real prediction, now I be nose that theres' be prizes up.
Lib dems 9,567
Beat that no lamas were hurt in this prediction;
Tory majority of 9,127 votes
The Blue Corner, by 3337 votes
1,423 to the Tories. I think it's going to be a lot closer than people are predicting.
Cons. majority of 4,261
BTW I googled the Labour Party site and found this comment on it from Chris Lennie, Acting General Secretary of the Labour Party:
"Worth gambling? Not when your families (sic) future is on the line."
"Education, education, education" - indeed!
2355 for the boy Timpson
When I win how do I prove i'm in a very real sense, me?
Con maj of 11,021
Conservative majority of 1,513
Conservative majority of 3,333
Sad to say, Tories by 851
Conservatives majority 8,001
I think that terribly terribly nice chap Timpson will win by about 2000 votes.
Gordon will struggle on for a bit but basically everyone will forget about zaNuLiebore and Dave will sweep to victory. His first act will be to Knight or Crown John Terry, anything to stop the poor sod crying.
C'mon you blues!
Labour victory by 1 vote after postal votes are taken into account; why else do we have to wait until 3am for the declaration. Labour have learnt from Robert Mugabe's experiences, Zanu/Labour will rule for ever.
conservative majority 2357
timpson by a whisker
DES leaves comments here but there's no provision for comment on his site.
Labour hold with a majority of between 150 and 500
Lady Finchley predicts 4631
i don't want to ruin the suspense but tories win by a majority of 4,850
Turnout: 50%, Total number of votes cast: 38,500
Tamsin Dunwoody [Lab]: 15,000, Elizabeth Shenton [LibDem]: 4,500 Edward Timpson [Con]: 18,500 Others: 500
Conservative majority: 3,500
or 3,531, which is the number I'm submitting to Iain Dale
Tory majority: 1345
3842 to the Tories.
2808 to the Tories.
Hre is my brave prediction
Lib Dems 9,567
Labour's hate filled hypocrite wins by 504
2,231 to the conservatives
Conservative majority of 2197
Tory win by 9567 votes.
It will be closer than some people think. Conservative win: majority 1792. Still a MASSIVE swing Lab to Con though.
ZaNuLab will try to portray it as 'disappointing for Dave' even though overturning the Lab majority by even one vote was rightly seen as a big, big task when Dunwoody Senior popped off.
Cons to win by 6,825 votes.
Con Maj 2886
8437 Tory Majority

I am not really Chris Paul but since he hasn't commented I feel justified in making up a ridiculous prediction on his behalf.
A record 189 comments already, Iain. This is how to boost voter turnout: just offer each one £100. To get the votes of an entire parliamentary constituency works out at £2.7 billion.
Con majority 3000.
