Take Your Time, Don't Be Late
It seems talks with Labour have just fallen through - no doubt on fears of claims of illegitimacy from the right wing press, and the inability of the Lib-Dems to work with the SNP. A pity, because a progressive majority of voters (51%) did not vote to see a Tory government. Hopefully, talks will cease soon, and Clegg will have something tangible to show for all his shilly-shallying and dilly-dallying. This has been the most enthralling and yet frustrating few days of British politics I have ever experienced. And, when he went, Brown left with dignity and tactical guile all at once - his leaving being so much like the best and worst of his time in office.
