Election call

election... politics... policy... manifesto... no, don't go! The trouble with politics is that most of the decisions made by governments aren't really based on certain principles or beliefs, they are pragmatic choices made in the circumstances of the time. So it's not surprising that campaigning becomes a rather arid affair of "he said she said" in which the main aim is to avoid making any major mistakes until the votes are in. Especially as the result is determined by a small number of floating voters in the Midlands; all the other seats are too safe to shift.

So I won't be commenting day-by-day as the Drama Unfolds. But I might say something from time to time if I hear anything interesting (that's a "no" then).
