Nice to See You, to See You...

No prizes I guess for suggesting that it's going to be a really wierd few years. The sight of Nick Clegg sittting on the Government benches ain't ever getting old!

What we can't tell yet is whether the 223 new MPs and a spirit of Glasnost will fundamentally change the nature of the Commons. Maybe when we look back the real casualty will be an end to the sixth form debating society nature of British politics that has characterised Parliamentary business for decades.

The idea that the nation voted for a hung Parliament is patently asbsurd. However, it may have been that the nation actually delivered a far more powerful message to MPs? Grow up!

I couldn't agree more Warren.

I hope it's an end to the selfish politics too :D
