One of the questions I am most often asked is
“When exactly will the next General Election be?”

Of course, the answer that I usually give is that “I don’t know” because it is up to the Prime Minister when he wishes to call the General Election. Under the law a General Election has to be held once every five years and as the last one was in 2005 the last date for the next one is 3rd June 2010.

I have added a new page to my blog called ‘General Election Countdown’ which contains a ‘widget’ ( a little computer programme that I downloaded – please do not think that I created it myself!) which automatically counts down the time to the last possible day for the next General Election.
