The Early Days of a Better Nation

Respect, man

Well, they did it. To my amazement the British electorate, by some miracle of something - text messaging, website wizardry, the wisdom of crowds, or pure luck - managed to slash Labour's majority without letting the Tories in. And Respect have their first MP, George Galloway, who said the words that will be replayed when this election is history: 'All the people you killed, all the lies that you told, have come back to haunt you.'

One thing I did get right was the strange death of socialist Scotland. The Labour vote was down, and the SSP vote crashed.
