I just couldn’t imagine it happening in Britain. America, the country we’ve spent so long mocking as a load of xenophobic, uncultured, obese simpletons, has turned out to possess in spades the one quality that has been missing at every level from our election campaign: good manners.

I know, it’s a bit ironic, coming from the pioneer of in-yer-face "yoof" TV, but we live and learn. Compare and contrast with Sarah Lyall’s account of the antics she witnessed at the recent British Press Awards.
