“restoring the status quo…”

From the Sunday Times, here’s Newton Emerson’s succinct summing up of the general election ahead.

In short, we are in for an election where a lot will go on but nothing will change. Isn’t that always the way around here?

    Yes it is…and whats wrong with that? If the voters dont want change who are the Overclass to whinge about it?

    FJH,

    The eh ‘overclass’ are not whingeing . Fine by them. Carry on SS Titanic no icebergs ahead 😉

    But everything changes, out of the 18 seat we will have a minimum of 3 new MPs, as 3 arent standing again, another 2 are looking very shakey atm. and lets say another 4 will be looking over their shoulders, so its a possible 50% change in faces.
    Rarely do revoloutions happen at the polls, once in a lifetime is more than enough, and dont think we are there yet, things have changed massively in the last year, and at the same time nothing has changed, thats the way of life. Dont expect revolutions on May 6th but do expect a wee bit more evoloution.
