Just briefly....

Now is the time for gloating, pointing and jeering at the Left in general. Intruding on private grief would be more than reasonable too. I know how they felt on that grim day in '97 and equally well know how they feel now.

While waking up to a Tory councillor, a Tory Council, a Tory GLA member, a Tory City Hall, Mayor and MP is pretty sweet, the bit I am *really* looking forward to is the wailing and gnashing off teeth from the likes of Toynbee and Alibhai-Brown over the next few days. One to savour, I think.

Meanwhile, of the five candidates I know or at the very least have bumped into, hearty congrats to Boris (natch), James Cleverly in B&B and Steve O'Connell in Croydon & Sutton, and commiserations to Andy Jennings in Greenwich & Lewisham and Matthew Laban in Haringey & Enfield.

What a joy it was when my hometown turned Blue in 2006 having elected a Blue MP for the first time in ages in 2005. A shame I moved, really...

Having met The Great James Cleverly briefly I am sure that he got a huge personal vote on top of the trad Blueness of the area.

Allez Les Bleus!

Don't forget in your celebrations to remember the sad news of the assassination of Wilberforce Monk.

MCB - Sad news indeed. Meanwhile, might I take this opportunity to thank you for the loan of your Mr Crosby?
