So, farewell then Michael Howard. Having confidently announced that he was leading the party to victory, we now find him making arrangements for a hasty exit. Suddenly he will be "too old" to lead the Tories at the next election. Rot. Age didn't stop Gladstone or Churchill. Everyone knew that he could not possibly win this election, he could only hope to bring the party back to a respectable position. Gaining 30 odd seats may perhaps have done this but it's a little early to tell.
Not much else to say really. The LibDems did a little better than the polls suggested but did not win enough seats to make a convincing breakthrough. Labour have a good working majority and maybe Gordon will be moving one door nearer to Whitehall a little sooner than he may have dared to hope, now that Tony has looked into the abyss and realised how close he came to falling in.
The trains have been okay since I came back from holiday. What on earth am I going to write about now? Ah well, I will think of something.
