I need to know who you think should run the country

First question - your favourite outcome from the current election

Of the vaguely plausible options, I would prefer a government made up of...

Labour majority
4(5.6%)
Conservative majority
2(2.8%)
Labour minority
1(1.4%)
Conservative minority
0(0.0%)
Labour + SNP support
7(9.9%)
Labour + Lib Dem
9(12.7%)
Labour + Lib Dem + SNP Support (+PC)
5(7.0%)
Labout + Green + SNP Support (+PC)
21(29.6%)
Labour + Lib Dem + Green
6(8.5%)
Labour + Lib Dem + Green + SNP Support (+PC)
14(19.7%)
Conservative + Lib Dem
0(0.0%)
Conservative + UKIP
0(0.0%)
Labour + Conservative
0(0.0%)
SEIWEIC
2(2.8%)

In a perfect world, where vastly different voting could happen , I would like a government that was made up of...

Labour
3(4.3%)
Conservatives
1(1.4%)
Lib Dems
12(17.1%)
Greens
10(14.3%)
UKIP
0(0.0%)
Lab + Lib Dem
1(1.4%)
Con + Lib Dem
0(0.0%)
Lab + Green
5(7.1%)
Lab + Lib Dem + Green
10(14.3%)
Lab + Lib Dem + SNP
0(0.0%)
Lab + Lib Dem + Green + SNP (+PC)
11(15.7%)
Lab + Green + SNP
5(7.1%)
Conservative + Lib Dem
0(0.0%)
Conservative + UKIP
1(1.4%)
SEIWEIC
11(15.7%)


Second question - in a different world, who would be your favourite people to run the country?

Note - this is assuming parties the same as today's. You can't say "I want a Green government, but one that has these three other policies that I love."

The second question would have more options, but I ran out of space in the form, which only allows 15 possibilities. (I'm sure it used to be 20!) - so you'll have to assume that Plaid Cymru come along as an optional extra when the SNP do.

Personally, my ideal would be a Lib-Dem/Labour/SNP/Green coalition, consisting of about 250/100/50/50 MPs. Not that that's anywhere near feasible. But a man can dream.

(Oh, and the last two weeks of thinking, plus my previous post about the advantages of not voting tactically, have convinced me to change my mind. I'm voting Lib Dem. Which won't win anything locally, but then the SNP have that sewn up.)
