It's not got that '97 feel.

I know that today is an historic day and that the political landscape
in the UK has changed perhaps for ever but it doesn't feel like '97.

In '97 it felt like a new dawn, a new optimism, the scale of the
victory felt like the country had woken up from a fitful long sleep.

Blair (& his babes) had us all hopeful of the way things could be. But
then. But then.

So, in real terms we trust MPs less than we did in '97; we were wooed
by Nick but having been burnt by Tony went back to the old two parties.

Will the coalition last? Will the compromises made mean the worst
bits of both manifestos or the best.

It's a new dawn, a new day, but the hope & optimism is missing.

We'll see. We'll see.
