I wish I could offer something insightful on the election, but any hope of that was lost after I stayed up all night watching the results come in and would have been slender anyway. Now we can only wait and see. We’re better off with Labour out, although jubilant crowds cheering on the streets were noticeable by their absence as Cameron’s Conservatives failed to sweep triumphantly into Downing Street. Now, while nobody wants PR and absolutely nobody wants to bother educating themselves on the pros and cons of any other alternative system, some sort of exploration of the options for electoral reform or, more generally, shifting the balance of power towards the people, can only be a good thing. Waiting for a Prime Minister: if this is what it would be like with PR, no thanks, although it’s a great mercy that Cameron and Clegg’s negotiating teams are taking their time, and out of the press’s eye.
