Time for optimism, time for pessimism

So we have a projected national share of 28% and we have had some triumphs in the SE and Midlands and the North. So far so good.

However, the other story is the way the Tories are using the electoral system to their own advantage and I find this totally depressing.

Could it be that there’ll be another majority Government on under 40% of the vote that after two terms will have crises when people get fed up with Cameron and some new Labour leader rises in esteem?

Surely it shows a divide in the aspirations of those voting between the `involved` and `non-involved`. The former look at the whole picture whether it’s their own MP, the policies and a deep look at the way they want to be governed while the latter just want `change` to `get rid of the other lot`.

It’s depressing – just an infantile view of giving power to another elite to see if they do any better out of fear (of PR, of Labour) creating more economic and political bubbles and recessions (after all it’s all global!) as if we have don’t have any influence at all on either the world stage or our own affairs.

There’s never been a greater need for someone in the UK to say `Yes we can!`
