Election Blues

It's been a bad day for Labour as the polls report significant losses. I didn't vote as I don't think the LibDems have made suffcient progress under Menzies Campbell to allow me to vote for them this time; in fact if anything they have gone backwards.

What was surprising was the surge in support for the Tories, who have no policies. Tories with policies are bad enough; Tories without them are even more incomprehensible. Whether this will mean they win the next election is debatable - I suspect people will be less willing to give Labour a bloody nose if they have to choose between it and a party with no ideas, but time will tell.

One thing is clear, though: The day we get a Tory government is the day I emigrate.
