.. and the weekend after

Come Saturday it became apparent that I am one of a national trend, hundreds of LibDem councillors not having been re-elected.  It’s something of a pity that public spirited individuals working for local communities should be ‘thrown out’ on account of national issues.  However, it’s also clear that the public feels that is about the only way it has of expressing its feelings!  The referendum on voting reform suffered, I reckon, through being held on the same day.  Things tended to be conflated in the public mind.

It’s all going to be interesting from here on.  The Coalition is beginning to read like some soap opera:  what will Nick do next?  How’s Dave going to keep the peace?  Does he want to?   What do SamCam and Miriam Clegg think of it all?   Does anyone care?
