The 2015 election race is a confusing place to be and that is mainly because it is all about politicians and as we all know, politicians do not do straight talking. If you were to listen to David Cameron, everything bad is Labour’s fault and everything good is because he is a saint. Flip reverse that to get Ed Miliband’s point of view and Nick Clegg only needs to know what drinks to pick up from Starbucks. Throw in a couple of wild card entrants in the form of Nigel Farage and Nicola Sturgeon and you have a race as interesting as it is confusing.

To make things a little easier, I have devised a profile guide to help you make your decision a little easier. Sort of like election 2015 top trumps if you will. And to simplify things further, I’ll keep things extremely superficial, because as we all know, we’re really voting for the people in charge and policies mean nothing.
