OUTGOING Tory MP Malcolm Moss said today it would a "miracle" if David Cameron were to win an outright majority in the next Parliament.
Mr Moss made his comments in an interview broadcast this morning on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.
Asked what he would be doing on Election Night, Mr Moss, standing down after 23 years as the MP for NE Cambs, said he was going to be "watching TV and hoping, fingers crossed."
He added: "Let's not kid ourselves, it a huge challenge for the Conservative Party to come out with a majority. We tend to stack our seats in huge Conservative areas, that's not necessarily how we want it to go.

Although he served as a Northern Ireland minister for two and a half years, in recent years Mr Moss has held no shadow ministerial roles.
After the 2005 election he retained his shadow ministerial role in the Department of Culture, Media and Sport with responsibilities for tourism, licensing and gambling but was replaced in November 2006 during a front bench re-shuffle by David Cameron.
