Paul Anderson’s ‘Gauche’ blog has quite convinced me to calm down and put the flame thrower away. He’s been very busy on his blog, and there are too many good postings to link to here, but have a look at his various comments between the 5th and the 9th May for good news on the terminal condition of the Conservatives.
My furious postings at the end of last week were an allergic reaction to seeing all of those blue 'Con Gain' screens coming up on the TV throughout the night. Imagine you were a Nottingham Forest supporter and you'd been in a coma since August. You are revived and someone gives you a blow-by-blow story of the season from the start.
It seemed almost as bad as that in the early hours of Friday morning. But it turns out that it’s alright after all.
This doesn’t mean that I’m not a bit worried that the Lib-Dems may have duped a lot of people into providing short-term electoral succor – AND a possible way back to power for the Conservative Party.
