Can you come back please? We think we seriously underestimated how good you were. If you do come back, we promise that you can be re-run every year for ever.

Yours

2017.

I really feel sorry for Nick Clegg, I think he's been dealt a really poor hand in the aftermath of (what I think was a very successful coalition) and now losing his seat.

I think history will treat him very well. Not that that is any consolation for him.

Agree and agree. The right man in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Also agree.

David Cameron also looking like a pretty good PM (right up until lobbing a grenade into his own garden) with hindsight.

Have to say I thought that at the time. Look at the other contenders then and since: Brown, Miliband, BoJo, Gove, that loony Tory woman Andrea something, May, Corbyn. FFS.

Yeah, I thought so too. I thought he did quite a good job of keeping one foot in Europe whilst stalling their more federalist designs in a way that kept mostly everyone quite happy. I honestly don't even remember Europe being such a massive issue until Farage rocked up and started yelling about it. Is that correct or is my perception or memory wrong?

Agreed. I saw him lose his seat 'live' at whatevertime. He really looked upset about it, but gave a very level headed & sensible speech.

Nope. I blame Farage completely for this.

I *so* wish I had known who he was at school, known the future, and pushed him down a long starircase breaking his neck to change it all for the better.

Thank you for your frank admission of guilt, Gregg.

It's your failure that has brought us to this point.

I think the media are also guilty of stirring up the anti-EU feeling - and not just the Murdoch empire, I'm also levelly the charge at the 'clearly-left-leaning-nulabia-windymills BBC', who had the frog-faced cnut on Question Time about 25 times a week, despite his party having just one MP.

Exactly that. Sad how that can happen.

Someone tweeted at stupid o'clock in the morning that he and Miriam could have been our Obamas and I felt quite tearful, what with the time and how you can get a bit emotional when it's nighttime.

Is it REALLY such a big coincidence that people you can almost fancy a bit tend to be generally better? Obama and Macron and the Canadian one and Clegg are all a bit fanciable (once you throw in the positions of power) and they're all good, decent guys. Then you get horrors like Trump and May and Putin who are obviously still smarting from their early rejections and, well... >gestures broadly<

That's some solid political analysis right there Span.

It stands to reason span. Think about it - beautiful people like us only see the best of the world. People are naturally kind and receptive to our incredible faces. May and Trump have been twisted and contorted by years of ugliness like rotten old trees, and have become a mirror for how the world sees them. All their lives will have been spent with children cowering from them, and shivering when they walk past so it turns them evil and wicked inside.

Definitely

I have no idea of Trudeau's politics, he could be a racist homophobe for all I know, but when I see him I think "phwoar I'd put a tick in his box"

In many ways he's a guy you'd want to hate given how handsome and intelligent he is but he seems to be such a nice guy too.
