I am exhausted by all that politics. Never have so many constitutional niceties and psephological calculations jostled for room in such a goofy brain. Also, I have been working at the weekends and am fretting about my book. So, my darlings, I am going to take a few days off. No writing, no blogging, quite possibly no thinking.
In the meantime, thank you all for your wonderful comments over the last few days, and bearing with me while I went all geeky on your ass.
I know some of you are filled with doubt and trepidation. I, idiotically optimistic to the last, am going to choose to have faith in the New Politics. It is really new. I still think this novel coalition might bring out the best in all parties. The small-L liberal in me likes the idea of a little more compromise and moderation, instead of yah-boo tribalism. I wish, of course, there were more WOMEN, but you can't always get every single last thing you want.
The economic times are grave, so it will not be all coming up
but - who knows? - it might not be a bed of thorns either.
