So Hillary is about to concede. At long last. Now we can get on the business of battling an election on one front and yes, a moment of pride that the US has for the first time, a black candidate from one of the two major parties in a direct race for the White House. A campaign I am proud to be involved with.
As for our beleagued Prime Minister, I was strangely heartened by the common sense comments made by Tony Blair this morning on GMTV. The problems with our economy are global and we need to remember that some of the great economic successes in the past decade are down to Labour. After all, was it the Conservatives who brought in the National Minimum Wage and New Deal, and isn't it also the case that they opposed those moves at the time!
