BBC News - UK pound drops on hung parliament fears.

The BBC has reported:

The pound has tumbled to a 10-month low as fears grow the UK will have a hung parliament in the forthcoming election.

The currency fell 1.6% to drop below the $1.50 level against the dollar for the first time since May.

Yesterday Cameron said it was people's patriotic duty to vote Conservative. Today his friends in the City played roulette by forcing down the pound because they think it will persuade people to vote Tory.

It's a dangerous and unpatriotic game these Tories play. Vote for us or we'll pull the house down. Almost self fulfilling, as it happens. And that patriotism at work, is it?
