The provisional date for the next general election is 7 May 2015. Between now and then there's going to be a lot of shouting, hot air, claims and counter claims, promises which will never materialise, etc. This thread should hopefully keep it all in one place So far we have had these sound-bites/pledges/promises from: Labour New mansion tax on homes worth £2 million or more Will 'save' the NHS Improved bus services Will replace the House of Lords with an elected senate Conservative Tax-free personal allowance raised from £10,500 to £12,500 Threshold for 40p income tax rate raised from £41,900 to £51,000 Will protect the NHS in England from spending cuts until 2020 Scrap the Human Rights Act and create a new 'bill of rights for the UK' A vote on whether the UK will remain in the EU English votes for English laws Liberal Democrats Err... I'm sure there are others so let me know and I'll update the lists. Feel free to add to the debate and vote in the (private) poll.
