Welcome to VICE's Coverage of the UK's Election '15

It's going to be the most anarchic election in living memory. It would be a shame to cover it in the same gray, old boring way.

There's a reason why the run-up to this election has yet to "ignite"—no one knows what is going to happen, and it's only going to get more chaotic once the result is announced. What that result will say more loudly than anything else is that Britain is confused, complicated, and changing at a quicker pace than its political system can keep up with.

As such, we will be focusing our efforts out in the field, seeing how government policies play out at street level, away from the Westminster echo chamber.

Instead of slavishly following bickering parties and pilloried politicians, we've been looking at the issues people definitely are invested in. We've got feature-length docs sifting through the rubble of the Coalition's austerity measures: the fall-out Britain of food banks, housing crises, and council towers turned into vertical shopping precincts for drugs, sex, guns, slave labor, and stolen gasoline.

All the while, our political correspondent Gavin Haynes will be carving his own kind of campaign trail through Britain in the run-up to the election—hitching a cab with jihadists so they can outline their vision for a future London, crashing student house parties, and hanging out with the Al-Zebabist Nation of OOOG, a separatist group running against Nigel Farage in South Thanet.

It's going to be the most anarchic election in living memory. It would be a shame to cover it in the same gray, old boring way.
