The news from overseas is pretty awful: but round my way the sun shining this morning, I'm feeling bouyant for a number of reasons - and the Tories are ahead in the polls! Cue the inevitable CiF thread, further adding to the jollity.
What's more, the same poll has 'NHS' as the most important single issue by a mile, having previously contested the #1 slot with other issues. If Mili, howling 'dodgy Tories' at the top of his nasal voice, can't hang on to his earlier poll lead against that backdrop, ...
I shan't rub it in for all you 'kippers out there.
Having always been in the camp of everything to play for / Crosby knows the score / no such thing as 'this is an election to lose' - well, I still am. Couldn't claim to have anticipated the SNP thing, in fact quite the reverse, I kinda thought the referendum result would put them back in their box. No matter.
There must now be the strong possibility of a huge negative feedback loop for Labour. Balls was already lining up Mili for both barrels. Tax avoidance isn't a great platform for the Mili-family to campaign on, so that line won't serve for much longer. The meeja have unanimously decided the Pink BatBus is hilarious. Oh yes, the sun is shining.
Greece, Ukraine, Libya, Italy, Denmark ... that's for tomorrow.
