Voters in Britain may still be waiting for an election result, but on Thursday voters on the Isle of Wight could finally give the country an answer.
Since a serious error involving postal votes at Osborne House in the late 19th Century, elections in the Isle of Wight have been held one week later than the rest of the United Kingdom. With only 649 seats out of 650 counted so far, and a hung parliament in Westminster, the result could be crucial.
The Party Leaders are expected to visit the Isle of Wight shortly in a last-ditch attempt to secure the final seat in Parliament. Conservative Leader David Cameron is planning to visit the yachting capital of Cowes jointly with Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg, whilst former Labour Leader Gordon Brown is expected shortly in an old people’s home in Shanklin, accompanied by leadership contender David Miliband.
