The Tory win was a shock to the system, certainly to my system.
But we must remember that only one in four registered voters actually voted for the winners.
It is also clear that winners under our first past the post system will never make sensible changes.
A lady I once knew used to face adversity by reciting the phrase ‘this too will pass’.
So us non-Tories can live in hope of escaping the current compassionless Tory cul-de-sac.
