Election 2015 - It's all kicking off

I suppose I need to make a few topical jottings to reflect the near hysteria mild interest in the approaching dissolution of Parliament. It's odd to have the date fixed so far in advance. Speculation about precisely when an election would take place could be guaranteed to fill many column inches  in the Press in the old days. Today other stories are jostling for attention instead
  • David Cameron's TV interview where he revealed his intention to stand down after a second full term and named his likely successors.
  • Nigel Farage's attempts to keep some sort of party around him as candidate after candidate implodes
  • The SNP, resurgent after the near defeat in the Referendum, fancies itself to hold the balance of power once it has done terrible damage to the other parties in the Scottish seats.
None of this has much bearing on the policies we might expect from an incoming government. If I can make out any of it out, I shall report back.
