    I was on MSNBC.com reading the coverage on British elections, and I'm looking for a start on how it works. Can somone give me an unbiased-as-humanly-possible view of what interests each party represents? I know that anyone interested in politics has some kind of bias, but I'm sure that can be (mostly) set aside to give a quick rundown. Thanks!

    Well, typically they wake up, do some work, have a spot of tea, go back to sleep and thats the gist of it.

    Occasionally they'll get together and "discuss" things while playing cricket or having a biscuit at tea time.
