All changed,changed utterly: a terrible beauty is born

It seemed such a dull election in prospect; the manifestos, the personalities, the stultifying sameness.

I have been a voter for 30 years-my father for over 60. Neither of us has seen a Liberal in Government.

The prospect of meaningful change in the way that Government operates seemed slim to non-existent to us.

And yet there has emerged over the past five weeks a new vigour to politics and a sense of genuine engagement amongst us.

Whether on the blogs, or the tweets or from the television there emerged a positive roar of disapprobation for the old and a clamour for a new way of dealing with issues.

Nick Clegg was at the heart of this and he dragged Cameron with him and he dragged Brown of Downing Street.

And while the tectonic plates of British politics ground into new alignment we have seen the catastrophic disintegration of order in Greece creating contagion across the Mediterranean belt of European Member States.

Currency, bond and equity markets have spiked with each dramatic twist. The markets have consistently reacted favourably to the prospect of a ConLib Coalition.

Tonight Simon Jenkins claimed he did not expect this coalition to last a year. The press has consistently underestimated the power of Clegg’s new way and I confidently predict that we will look back at these few weeks as the turning point as British politics finally moved on.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

  8. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
