My polling was also a bit off, so I didn't include + and - in this turn. It will be there after the next turn!

The Socialists will rally in Northwest England, with Taaffe speaking to the crowd about how the environmental crisis was caused by the Conservative and Labor governments refusing to hold Big Business accountable. Electing Socialists into Parliament will be a message to Big Business that we will not stand for this any more. (Event 1)

The Socialists announce a slate of candidates to run in Liverpool (Northwest England) for City Council and Mayor, while announcing that Taaffe will be the Socialist nominee for one of the Liverpool seats. They announce that they will be running a national campaign, and that they will challenge Labor, Liberal Democrats, and Tories in their campaign. (Event 2)

Socialists activists in London rally for not only protections to the NHS, but a massive expansion to the program in funding. (Event 3)

The Socialists cobble together their first ad, with the ad being ran in Northwest England and highlighting the dedication the party has to environmental concerns and the failures of Labor and the Tories to address them. (Advertisement)

Nigel Farage, while campaigning with UKIP's candidate in Southampton Itchen, will hold a press conference announcing UKIP's comprehensive plan to privatize the NHS, promising that, "This plan would allow for the free market to take charge of the health of our citizens, allowing for free market competition to bring far better care to the average UK citizen than is currently provided.

 

Nigel, while holding a public forum with UKIP founders and with the party's candidate in Birmingham Northfield, will discuss how the massive spending cuts promised by the Party would, "Ensure the elimination of public debt, and would allow for our government to afterwards lower taxes across the board all the while building up reserves to be used when we are faced with major disasters natural and of human cause. Establishing a truly free market, massively cutting public spending beyond the confines of the weak Tory job doing so, and eliminating public debt are all ways the UK can massively grow the economy and become a competitive sovereign economic power once more."

 

UKIP will run television ads across Southeast England in Tory seats promising to abandon Europe to "Repair the long neglected relationship between Britain and the Commonwealth, creating and forging genuine ties economically, socially, and militarily with these nations to restore Britain's steadfast role as the head and defender of the free and democratic nations of the Commonwealth."

DUP: 5. Paisly seems to not make too much progress in Upper Bann.

SF: 4. The presence of SDLP activists in the area sends the Sinn Fein campaign into a tizzy.

Alliance: 6. A better than average start for Alliance!

UUP: 9. The largest party in NI seems to have recovered from missteps.

Rally: 9. A success for the Socialists in North West England will put more pressure on Labour to turn to its left as it fights this election.

Announcement: 8. Liverpool is delighted that they get a whole slat of Socialists to pick from.

Rally: 10! A great rally for the Socialists, taking aim at the bad efforts of Labour on that front.

Ad: 3. The ad goes poorly, as the Greens take aim at one of the policy proposals that was supposedly stolen from them.

Overall: +9. A great day for the Socialists gives some hope they can have an impact on this election.

Rally: 10! A great day for Labour in Liverpool, trying to fight off the rising Socialists.

Barnstorms: Brown seems to only make the problem worse, with the possibility of splitting the Scottish party being floated by a few radicals.

Ad: The Labour attack seems to get brushed under by the Socialists' blistering attacks on Labour setting in.

Overall: -1. An even day for Labour on the whole - despite the -1 it seems to be good that they are fighting off challengers in Northwest England.

Farage: 9. Right-wingers seem to like the idea of a privatization plan.

Forum: 6. A decent day for UKIP, as they attack their fellow right-leaning party in the Tories.

UKIP ad: 7. The plug for the Commonwealth appeals to anyone in the center or right.

Overall: +7. A good solid day for UKIP, which they hope will continue into the future.

SDLP: 3. Some unionist agitators interrupt Hume, who seems flustered by the response.

SNP: 4. The independence cause seems to be getting irritated at the lack of time being given to it, but to many it isn't an issue.

Plaid: 10! Many Welsh empathize with the view, and even go as far as cheering for Plaid politicians as they speak.

Overall: 0. An even day that may be overshined by the success in Wales.

Lucas: 6. Lucas' approach seems to win her some support around Brighton.

Ad: 10! A wonderfully put together ad seems to benefit the Greens in a few core areas.

Overall: +4. A strong day for the Greens.

London: 5. An average day in London for Major.

Kent: 5. Same in Kent, as it goes over decently with the public.

Coventry: 1! Major blunders when he says that the NHS should be "effective", and many take it as a slight against the service.

Overall: -7. A horrible day to be a Tory.

Teignbridge: 5. A bland day in Teignbridge as the Lib Dems fail to capitalize on Tory mistakes

Huntingdon: 3. A slightly bad day in Huntingdon, as many voters question whether the Lib Dems are maintaining equidistance

Scotland: 9. A great day in Scotland means good for the Lib Dems!

Overall: 0. The day in Scotland will likely overshadow the mistakes on the other areas of the country.

Marshall Garcia meets voters in London

London: 10! The tour is a success, and London seems to be a building area for the party.

London: 8. Another strong rally in London

London: 2. The campaign struggles when a voter asks why the party is different from the Lib Dems. Garcia says, "Uh...um...the logo...and policies?" To laughs from the crowd, and not all in a humorous way.

Overall: +4. Not a bad turn for Change UK!

Storylines

In Scotland, Labour has continued to decline as reports of infighting have emerged. However, the scandal-wrought Tories are not able to contest it as much, losing a few tenths of a percent from the previous week. The Liberal Democrats have emerged as a key winner in Scotland over the past few days, while the SNP has lost nationalist voters to the Greens after a poor weak of campaigning. Other key areas are quickly emerging as well. In the South West, the Lib Dems have emerged as a consistent challenger to the Tories, and their relationship with Labour continues to be one of mutual benefit. Labour has benefitted from a poor week of Conservative campaigning, narrowing the margin of victory for the Tories, even while they slump. The big story of the week is the minor parties, as the Socialists, Change UK, UKIP, and Greens all had a wonderful beginning to the campaign. The Tories are in for a fight in Brighton Pavilion, as the Green Party nominated Caroline Lucas to run for the seat, which put it into immediate contention. In Sheffield Hallalm, Green Party leader Barker is facing off against a veteran Labour MP. He has little chance to win, but if the Greens continue to rise, it could aid the party. There are fears of a minority government in Tory HQ, but they are confident they could pull the UUP in if necessary. Plaid Cymru is emerging as a challenger in Wales, as they have taken nearly a percent and a half to their total from the previous week. They are even favoured to pick up a fifth seat. 

 

Next week of campaigning begins now.

The SDLP makes the case in tour through Northern Ireland as to why the people should vote for them. 

"A vote for the SDLP is a vote for freedom and Devolution. It's a vote against this government that will need the support of the UUP in order to maintain its majority! Vote SDLP!"

The SNP campaign stops in Edinburgh, calls for Devolution in order for the people of Scotland to have control over where their tax dollars go to

"They'd rather invest in weapons of war instead of our glorious NHS!"

Plaid campaign holds a rally in Cardiff, reminding voters of the failure of Labour and Tory governments of the past to get the people of Wales a larger say in Parliament.

"Our culture and language must be preserved and respected!"

The Socialist Party continues to campaign in Liverpool (Northwest England), undeterred by Labor's presence in the area. A Socialist City Council nominee leads the rally, talking about the need not just to hold local government accountable, but for Socialists to have a presence in Parliament so that they can hold Labor and the Tories to actual reform. (Event 1)

The Socialist Party campaigns again in Northwest England, where a nominee pledges that the party will be "the most environmentally friendly party in the history of the United Kingdom". (Event 2)

The Socialist Party runs another ad in Liverpool (Northwest England), featuring Taaffe responding to issues raised by constituents at a town hall event. (Event 3)

The Liberal Democrats send out leaflets laying out "Ashdown's vision for Britain" to letterboxes in the constituencies of Bath, St. Ives, Cornwall North, and South East Cornwall.

Paddy Ashdown campaigns in Twickenham about the Environment 

"It is important to realize that taking care of the Environment is important and that Global Warming exists. We must increase renewable energy production and start lowering our reliance on oil, coal, and natural gas to lower our CO2 emissions. This will take time to do, and we must make it a worldwide effort. But in the end, it will be worth ii.

Today while touring a series of tight races where Tory incumbents are threatened across the East Midlands Nigel Farage will release a comprehensive plan to create a "United Commonwealth" consisting of a unified currency in the British Pound, open borders between all members states, and a government manned in London consisting of a Parliament elected proportionally by each member state's populace, and a "Prime Minister" appointed by the British Parliament who will preside over the operations of the union. The plan will be for the UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand to all be members of the union, with guaranteed military protection and involvement by Britain in all member states. Farage will say, "As we radically cut our government's spending, privatize our bloated programs, and eliminate public debt in Great Britain, our economy will surge forth as we secure Britain as a sovereign economic powerhouse once more. However, like the days of old, this power is not for us alone. We must reclaim our role as the head of the democratic nations of the Commonwealth and form a military, political, and economic union ensuring a lasting and glorious resurgence of Britain and her democratic ideals as a major force on the world stage. Thank you."

 

UKIP will launch an ad campaign across the East Midlands claiming that the Tories, with their "Slow and steady." crawl towards removing the public debt, are, "Allowing for more and more of an opportunity for Labour or another socialist party to seize power and undo all of the little work they have done. We need to cut and privatize our programs now, we cannot wait for the socialists to seize power and explode the public debt, as the Tories seemingly want."

 

Farage will hold a series of public forums across the East Midlands discussing UKIP's plan to privatize the NHS.

Neil Kinnock holds a rally in Coventry, attacking the Socialists, as radicals, whose only purpose is to split the left wing vote, and help ensure five more years of Tory government. (Also @Hestia11, would it be safe to assume that MP Dave Nellist is the Socialist candidate for Coventry South East, given that he ran as an independent after being deselected for support for Militant, and later joined the Socialist Party when it was founded in 1997?)

Tony Blair talks about Labour's support for common sense solutions to unemployment, while barnstorming in Essex.

John Smith talks about the Labour party's Tax Policies, while door knocking in Scotland.
