Worst news of the night? George Galloway’s win. (Although it’s hard to shed too many tears for Oona King, the woman who described the US as a f***ing f***ed-up power.") Good news? Jack Straw held out against anti-war sentiment in Blackburn. And the Tories now have a black MP.
I have a suspicion that this election restores business as usual. If Brown moves Labour to the Left, centrists will return to the Tories.
