Close, but not close enough

It’s probably inadvisable to blog after zero hours’ sleep.

Any government which does not include the party that won both the most seats and the most votes would be wholly without legitimacy and would amount to a fraud upon the electorate. Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown would do well to think about that. Further, if Brown did the right thing and tendered his resignation, Clegg would be ill advised to vote down a minority Conservative government as he and his party would be wiped out both electorally and financially by the following election.

However for the time being, congratulations to my old pals Nicky Morgan, Michael Ellis and Mark Reckless who have made it to Parliament, to Dominic Raab for securing a 9% swing from the Liberal here in Esher & Walton and commiserations to Shaun Bailey, Hannah Foster and Paul Bristow who all put up a great fight but did not quite make it.

Off to Sandown now for the local election count. Hope they have some coffee there!
