Well, this blog did vote for the Liberal Democrats on Thursday, and I’m afraid it wasn’t a great success. The Conservative was returned with an increased majority.
In other news, another of my tips for the top – James Taylor – has barely got out of single figures all season.
Coming soon – my tip for the Oxford Poetry Chair, Geoffrey Hill, is beaten by a surprise last minute entry – Purple Ronnie.
Ronnie commented “Did you know I was David Cameron’s best friend at Eton? Well, I was. He said that once I’ve finished at Oxford and that awful woman’s gone I can be the next Poet Laureate too, if he gets to be Prime Minister. I’ve written a poem for him specially.”
My mate Dave (a coronation ode)
by Purple Ronnie
Silly Nick Clegg
Has only one leg
And Gordon Brown’s a twerp
But my mate Dave’s so groovy
He makes my bottom burp!
