1983 General Election

The highlights of that election night are on BBC Parliament right now, blaring away on the television in the study as I am typing away. Interesting, although the graphics and use of synths in the opening credits were slightly excruciating. It's also faintly amusing to hear people like David Steel predicting the demise of the Labour Party.
Ah well, here's to 2010
