Didn't the Lib Dems do well? From the BBC's live election blog I mean. They gave their manifesto launch several anticipatory puffs and, unlike with the Conservatives yesterday (but like with Labour on Monday), the reports on the launch contained no snide asides from BBC reporters and no criticisms from 'outside forces'. Almost all the subsequent comments were favourable to the Lib Dems. I think the Lib Dems will be highly satisfied with this sort of coverage.
And I don't think Vince Cable will mind this...
2048: Talk about a government of all the talents. Warwick University lecturer Angie Hobbs is asking Twitter and Facebook followers which great philosophers they would like to see in their fantasy cabinet. So far Plato and the UK's own Edmund Burke are in the lead. Wot, no Vince Cable???
