The End of an Era

So the government is to resign, after the drama over the past few dayds one feels something of a relief. Relief too that the Lib Dems might temper the Tories worst excesses (although don't hold your breath too much), and relief that it seems that Osborne won't be Chancellor of the Exchequer (what does that say about him!)
What happens now is anybody's guess. We are in uncharted territory as we face the first peacetime coalition in seventy years, there are potential clouds on the horizon and how Cameron manages is crucial. For those of us in Labour, our job is to lick our wounds, learn from our mistakes, be wise in picking our new leader and be ready to be prepared for power for when the s**t hits the fan.
It's getting towards sunset and it was sunrise when Labour celebrated that glorious day thirteen years ago. Lets do our bit and make sure that the country is not plunged into darkness
