And so another day dawns.
So it all worked out with Brown leaving with some dignity and even some grace, the New Prime Minister was driven through the normal traffic to take up residence. No Zil lanes, no pomp, just a very British muddle through strictly observing our unwritten constitution. A constitution and system that isn't broken but needs some gentle reforming.
FPTP or AV, I don't really care, they keep the strong constituency link. PR is just a recipe for a party hack parliament. The one thing that is clear from this election is that individual candidates were held to account by their constituents separately from their parties. We need that to continue.
Europe, that is going to be a battle for another day. The eurosceptics failed to make this an issue this election, though some may argue that it was the underlying reason why Cameron failed. UKIP cost him seats and his U-Turn on Lisbon cost him activists.
England. England wanted a different result to the other parts. We just ended up where England wasn't held to ransom by the vote buying "Progressive Alliance", but it was close. It mustn't happen again. A change is needed and the Tories know the change is needed for their continued existence as they have unwillingly become an English Party.
And for the first time I'm older than the Prime Minister which officially makes me a grumpy old man.
