The article takes a hard-look at the game-changers in UK politics in 2014. MPs in the mainstream political parties, Conservatives, Labour and the Liberals are worried about their futures after the next election. Meanwhile, the Greens and UKIP have been gaining ground strongly. UKIP has shrewdly been taking traditional Labout voters to add Conservative voters which it had previously woed. Meanwhile, the anti-austerity platform of the Greens provides a serious alternative to Labour’s left-wing flank.

Personally, I feel that it is time for a radical shake-up of the UK political classes. The Coalition of the Conservatives and the Liberals has abandoned their traditional voters. We have witnessed a swing towards minorities, like gays.

Any thoughts on the UK’s political landscape in Dec. 2015?
