Coalition for the commoner (and by commoner I mean people like me)

It’s voting day – and I am genuinely excited! This election is so close!

I know politics can be boring because it’s so complicated and so complex it hard to stay engaged, but I feel that it is important for us all to know the basics. This election is particularly exciting because the most recent polls suggest that the outcome of the election will most likely be a coalition. And this time around there are so many possibilities.

I’ve made a diagram that shows the possible outcomes for a coalition and what one might work and what ones are unlikely to ever happen. I’ve decided to focus on the key players from the TV debates: Ed Miliband (Labour), David Cameron (Conservative), Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrats), Nicola Sturgeon (Scottish National Party), Natalie Bennett (Green Party), Nigel Farage (United Kingdom Independence Party), Leanne Wood (Plaid Cymru).

I drew the images myself – I hope this helps. Let me know what you think! Click on the image to see it bigger if you need to.
