The British General Election will take place on May 6th 2010. For a gateway to many of the key sources of information, the General Election page of is very hard to beat. The site also includes some original content, as in this page about the party leaders' TV debates (the first ever in Britain).
There are five main sections:
* Parties, candidates and the election
* Polls, predictions, statistics and tactical voting
* Hung Parliament
* Newspaper and TV General Election sites
• Other election sites and information To gain a really comprehensive picture of the British General Election- its issues, the range of party policies and voters' views - would take a lot of reading of many sources. does an immense service in making this task that bit more achievable, by its channelling of the daily news and the variety of ideas being expressed.

There is something about words in expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move. They pierce your skin, enter your blood, and numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic.” From The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

Fill in the pink slip at the library desk and place in the item, put the item in the box marked donations at the library desk…
