I have just been proofreading a feature for the next issue of Total Politics in which our editor has asked about 30 political pundits to predict the result of the election. It's astonishing how many of them try to worm their way out of making a firm prediction. Only a few put their necks on the block. Wimps. They're all supposed to be political experts at the top of their game and yet clearly fear making mugs of themselves.
Well, for what it is worth, my prediction remains a Conservative majority of 12 seats. It's what I predicted back in January and I see no reason to change my mind.
If it turns out to be a majority of 40, 50 or 60 I will be quite happy to have made a mug of myself!
