And they're off!
So the election has been called and the polls show the Tories threatening. At least we may have an interesting campaign now. The key will be, I believe, how assertive the Tories can be about their plans. They risk sounding too much like a Government, in terms of the detail of their proposals, yet lacking the automatic gravitas and extra trust which comes with being in power. Although I do have exams looming over the next few weeks I hope to be covering it as much as possible.
I was almost recruited as a blogger for the Today programme on Radio 4 - I got down to the final shortlist but heard just before the election was announced that I hadn't quite made it....that means my more limited readers here will get more personal feeback!
