Tory win in the stars, says Grant

Election victory is in the stars for David Cameron, Russell Grant said.
Polling day falls at the "worst possible time" for the three main party leaders, with an "emphatic Mercury retrograde" leaving them struggling to get their messages across, the astrologer said.
But the Tory leader's stars show most promise, narrowly better than Nick Clegg, he added.
Mr Grant said: "Astrologically the future lies with Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg really thanks to their Jupiter in Leo - they may not be as poles apart as they think.
"Simmering anger combined with unpopularity is the undercurrent for election day astrologically.
"The inability to get across messages, policies or understand national grievances is underlined by an emphatic Mercury retrograde."
Here are Mr Grant's astrological chart readings for three main leaders:
Gordon Brown (Pisces - February 20 1951) - "The biggest threat to any success on May 6 comes from himself. He has a self-destructive streak rising from an inability to be adaptable and flexible and it is this Mercury opposition to Pluto that is triggered off by the Sun/Moon square in the election day chart."
David Cameron (Libra - October 9 1966) - "His chart compared with the British and election day chart is not too bad but with Mercury retrograde and squaring his Jupiter/Moon in regal Leo, Mr Cameron must spell everything out in single syllables and leave nothing to chance. He must explain his policies and intentions or others are bound to put words in his mouth and that could be his failure."
Nick Clegg (Capricorn - January 7 1967) - "Out of the three main leaders Mr Clegg's chart connects best with the British national charts so the election debates were perfect for him to become more simpatico with the British public."
