  • First thought.
    Who actually cares?
    Second thought
    It’s all been so uninspiring.
    Third thought
    Over to everybody else to maul my comments.

  • I am glad that we have finally reached the end. I intended to listen to many of the hustings but after a while they became a bit repetitive and dull. Not the fault of the candidates as they kept to their strong selling points. Whoever wins we must support them and re-focus our efforts for next year.

    Well you care enough to read (admittedly a short) article and post on it!

  • Congratulations to Ed. As he said the real work starts now. Somehow he must distinguish himself from the leaders of the other political parties and make voting Liberal Democrat the cool thing to do.

    Yes like his ideas on privatising public services, nothing cool about that except if you’re an orange booker to the right of the conservatives.
