One of the things I like most about General Elections is watching some of the high and mighty and well-known politicans loose their seats. Portillo and Mandelson to name but two from previous elections.

So with that in mind, which high-profilers do you think will be out of their well-paid jobs on Friday morning?

I'll start off with Oliver Letwin (Shadow Secretary of State for Economic Affairs & Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer) of the Conservative Party whom I think will be loosing his seat to the LibDems.

I'll also stick my neck out for the very high-profile loss of Labours Jack Straw (the Foreign Secretary), again to the LibDems. This loss will be largely down to the large Asian and Islamic communities of his constituency moving over to the LibDems as well as a large anti-war vote against one of the biggest protagonists for the war.

She's not a HUGE name, but I have spotted our MP, Melenie Johnson, on the news a couple of times, and she is the Minister for public health. To be honest, I don't have a CLUE as to how Weleyn Hatfield is going to go, should be interesting.

As in, it'll be either Lab or Con, Lib Dems don't have a hope in hell, and UKIP can get knotted.

I really hope that Letwin loses his seat. Have you ever watched his body language? It's deeply unpleasant. Apparently the lib dems have his seat (Devon West?) as their number 1 target. I hope that a lot of the labour voters there will vote tactically for lib dem.

It's Dorset West.
I cast my Postal Ballot there.
And it wasn't for oily Olly.
