The year is 1979 and Maggie is about to give Jim Callaghan a royal whupping. The BBC soundtrack this event with some weird whiny prog-lite. I quite like the sinister images made up of all those x's too.
Like lots of people, I've read lots of stuff about it in the papers. Most of it was waffle. But here's the best one pager I've found so far, from the FT. A great piece to read if you don't want to wade through all of the dross and just fancy some proper good writing. Web version here.
There will be an election this autumn (or fall). This is a good place to keep tabs on the poll of polls and other indices of note, including twitter mentions, google searches and other 'key metrics', as I believe Sam from the West Wing might call them. Thanks to Ben for pointing it out.
David Cameron has started blogging. It was all over the front of the papers this morning. I was interested but sadly so was everybody else - the site was down. Looking forward to seeing how open and honest Dave gets on his blog, or whether it'll be carefully stage-managed by his team (Steve Hilton in particular, who seems to be the strategic brain behind the Cameron hairdo).
