2010 General Election Diary Day 27: The Ice Age is coming

It couldn’t last, of course. All bubbles burst, all things that have been feeling so good for such a long period have to eventually drop back down to the norm, and perhaps even below the norm in order to appease the law of…

2010 General Election Diary Day 26: Fear of a blue planet

Another quiet election day from me – had a few more deliveries to do this morning, but just as I was getting ready to take them out, I noticed that someone had forgotten to put the letters in the addressed envelopes, and while…

2010 General Election Diary Day 25: Silver Nemesis Of The Dog Whistles

Firstly, a musical interlude: Well, that’s cleared all the lingering dog whistles from last night. For more on this, and to save me just echoing everything she wrote, go and read what Jennie has to say. Just think, this time next week it’ll…

2010 General Election Diary Day 23: Somedays, you just can’t get rid of a bomb

I was struggling to think of a title for today’s post, then started flicking through the channels and discovered that the 60s Batman film was on FilmFour. It was very hard not to see Gordon Brown as the unluck sap running along a…

2010 General Election Diary Day 21: The Final Countdown

It had to happen eventually. The campaign was going so well, and everything in the election was going fine, but then the dark shadow from the past has risen to cast its pall over the whole affair. Yes, Jan Moir has risen from…

2010 General Election Diary Day 20: Jai Ho

So, the team in blue were leading throughout most of the campaign and seemed set to coast home easily. The red team, the defending champions, really didn’t live up to expectations but a flurry of activity helped them out in a close close…

2010 General Election Diary Day 18: Some days, the board runs you

Been somewhat out of the national election loop today, as I’ve been concentrating on working here on the campaign here in Colchester. Been glancing at Twitter on and off during the day, which has provided an interesting way of skimming the election news…

2010 General Election Diary Day 17: It’s all #nickcleggsfault

I’m still not quite sure what part of today I’ve found the strangest – the news that Marmite are suing the BNP over a Party Political Broadcast, that Iain Dale wrote a post deploring the personal attacks on Nick Clegg, or the fact…
