Hung Up

I have just completed a YouGov survey which concluded with a quick poll about whether or not participants wanted a hung Parliament. The results to date were interesting:

A hung Parliament is the most likely result (I think) yet its one most people don’t want. I assume they sense the need for clarity of management and that is unlikely where Parties have to work together.
The Week in Westminster had a debate on Saturday about whether the Parties should be explicit about what they would do if there was do if no-one had an overall majority. I can see the point, to give voters more information, but I’d worry that planning for it makes it more likely.

Some of respondents probably had a different meaning to "Hung Parliament" than you or I would....though on second thoughts, I'll go with the noose as well.
