At last it's been announced!
The General Election will be held on Thursday 6 May 2010.

All three main parties will go into the general election having changed leaders since the last election.

3 new leaders in 2010 election

David Cameron took over as Conservative leader in December 2005 when he replaced Michael Howard.

Gordon Brown succeeded Tony Blair as leader of the Labour Party on 24 June 2007 and as Prime Minister on 27 June 2007.

Nick Clegg was elected as leader of the Liberal Democrats in December 2007, succeeding Sir Menzies Campbell who resigned on 15 October 2007 after having replaced Charles Kennedy, who had himself resigned in March 2006.

Last time was 1979

The last time all three main parties went into a general election with new leaders was in the 1979 election, when James Callaghan as Labour leader, Margaret Thatcher for the Conservatives, and David Steel with the then-Liberal Party took to the polls.

New leaders! New Policies?

There may be new leaders but are there any new policies to encourage us all to go out and vote?

No doubt we will find out as they come head-to-head but only time will tell but then on the other hand perhaps not!
