I can't resist adding...

I can’t resist adding that I was delighted to help re-elect my councillor Jean Fooks, and to run the committee room for Roz Smith (against a strong Labour campaign), and that the splendid Neil Fawcett and John Howson have been elected to Oxfordshire County Council, too.  But I realise that many good councillors have lost their seats today, through no fault of their own. Perhaps our new slogan should be ‘Where we work (and the national leadership doesn’t undermine us) we win’?

Nick Clegg’s suggestion that this is somehow an inevitable result of a process of maturing towards being a ‘party of government’ is unpersuasive, and makes me worry that he really doesn’t mind the party’s base being damaged.
