That was the day that was… 30 November

“It’s fairly quiet today…”

Alright, that turned out to be as accurate as a Greek government’s balance sheet, didn’t it? Ah well, as we say in the editorial game, you can’t get them all right, can you?

As I write these words, we’re at ninety comments on what was, I felt, a fairly honest appraisal of some fairly rotten by-election results. And, obviously someone beyond those interested in the death/future (delete as appropriate) of the Liberal Democrats was reading it, as I received an unexpected telephone call asking me if I’d go onto a Russian radio show to discuss the results. I wasn’t going to (I’m the editorial team’s determined non-media person…).

But, if the cliche is to be believed, it’s better to be talked about than not. And whilst there’s a breath in my body, I’ll be a Liberal Democrat. So, on that note, good luck, good night, and keep the faith…
