First Post!

Welcome to my new ‘blog, where I will be writing about Liberal politics from the East End of London.

Today, Nick Clegg lead Prime Minister’s Questions.  The party is achieving big things as part of the coalition Government.  It’s an exciting time to be a Liberal Democrat.

The elections were disappointing locally:  Bridget Fox was yet again foiled by the dastardly Emily Thornberry in Islington South and Finsbury, we lost control of Islington council to a bunch of unreformed loony lefties, and Hackney continues to be pretty much a one-party state controlled by Labour.

But for the first time in a long time it feels as if the country is being run by decent people, and along more liberal lines.  A new dawn has broken, has it not? It now, at last, seems possible to write in a spirit of optimism that things may indeed get better.

I’m still trying to find the buttons that make WordPress do what I want, so expect changes and glitches while it beds in.  And I’m already regretting the choice of URL, but if the brilliant Alix Mortimer can flourish under the ‘fabulous blue porcupine’ moniker, I can at least try to make this work.
