Are the days of relying on a core vote plus a chunk of the swinging centre gone?
UKIP, SNP and (to lesser degree) are all eating into that core vote.
Labours master plan was to count on the core vote and grab some of the central ground by looking tough on scroungers and following austerity. That plan is now looking flawed as the SNP could make big ground in Scotland.
Labour to get most seats but no majority is the current fave prediction.
