It’s amazing how quickly it can come to seem like ancient history, but a couple of months on, time enough for the pain of May 7th to ease a little, I can reflect on the UK general election campaign with a little objectivity.
Having left government employment, 2015 was the first general election since 1983 when I was free to throw myself into the campaign. I wanted Labour to win, and was gutted that they did not. But leaving that aside, what a strange ritual they are. So here, in as apolitical a way as I can manage, are some things I learned.
