Brief thoughts

  1. Apparently its not helpful to remind the Lib Dems of what happened when the Liberal Party supported minority administrations in the past.
  2. Good local newspapers help keep politicians responsive.  Can hyper-local blogs fill that void?  I’m not sure, but given the alternative they should be trying (while acknowledging their limitations).
  3. Apparently canvassing voters (particularly voters who live alone) can make a difference, but only if done right.
