Liberal hopes


The Independent was the paper I used to read. it was always left-of-centre but generally hewed between the Conservatives and Labour. It was the Liberal rag, in short.

It still is - but now it's faaar Left. Where Kennedy went, that paper followed.

Right now their correspondent Marie Woolf is relaying the Liberal prediction (and mine) that they will get their best results since 1923, and their hope (clear to everyone) that "Labour voters back them tactically".

This won't be the election of a Liberal slate. If they do as well as the Independent hopes and as I fear, this will be the start of a Labour collapse. Or, rather, historians will start to recognise the last few years as such.
