Wonder if any of these badges I found lurking among the mess on my desk would help prevent a Tory victory at the next General Election. It disconcerted me the way on Newsnight last night they accepted the inevitability of a Conservative government coming to power – to the extent they only had Tory contributors. This has seriously started to depress me – I really thought we had all that behind us – like puberty. I can’t go through it again any more than I could tolerate acne, feeling like nobody understands me and spontaneous involuntary erections (truth is I still suffer from all three but you get my point hopefully). I know 1980s nostalgia is in vogue but couldn’t we draw the line at bringing back a Tory government and just watch old news footage of Douglas Hurd and Nigel Lawson.
