British general election (7): if there is just one difference you need to understand

“At the last general election, 12% of voters did not support Conservative, Labour or Lib Dem candidates: on average, in the polls during March this year, the number of respondents saying they intended to vote for other parties was 26%.”

This is a quote from a piece by David Cowling – someone I knew 45 years ago in student politics (we were both president of our students’ union), The theme of the article is how difficult it going to be for the pollsters to call the result of the coming General Election, now less than six weeks away.
