Election Fever

Is anyone else excited? The sad fact is that noone really is outside of Westminster Village and the Media Circus. I won't get in the habit of quoting a Tory front bencher (particularly this one) but Liam Fox MP said today that the electorate were already election weary. It does seem that this election was announced two years ago, not two days ago.

Cameron, Brown and Clegg have gone big guns today to get their first message out there, to set out their stalls for the next 3 weeks or so, but to what end? All of the pollsters and media know-it-alls are throwing around the term "hung parliament" like there's no tomorrow seemingly setting us all up for no winner. The fact that Clegg is getting a mention is interesting in itself, the leader of the third party should have had his sun by now as the real countdown begins.

The most interesting factor in all the polling and second-guessing is exactly how many people will vote. If you were a not-so-bothered, politicians-are-all-the-same voter and you were being told that no one will win, would you vote?

It's going to be interesting.

It's been a while.

It's been a while. Oh dear it's been a while...
