Geoff, I'm picking that if Mike Hosking's politics agreed with you, you'd agree with his Broadcaster of the Year award. Stop confusing politics for talent.
It's said the best electoral system is the one that gets your preferred choice into power.
I think the UK result is the right one for stability as Key's re-election was here.
I'm also glad that scary UKIP outfit has been largely sidelined....another plus for their first past the post method,
So you're not a fan of first past the post Simon G. Fair enough. But that doesn't deny that Labour have failed badly according to all expectations. Wiped out in Scotland and no real progress in England.
Point taken Russell but it does underline again the suspicion one should attach to opinion polls by and large.
You begin your piece Russell by claiming that "the UK election result will almost certainly be a mess."
Like most of the other predictions, that couldn't be further from the truth. The result is a clear-cut mandate to continue the economic stability that Cameron and his mob have delivered since they came to power.
Miliband is a memory in waiting. Bravo.
