I love elections. This morning I watched the southern news and heard a Labour councillor, or possibly ex-councillor, say with a completely straight face, "Over the past ten years most people have seen their standard of living rise and an improvement in public services."

I'm all agog for the results of the London mayoral election, even if it did sound on R4 this morning as though Londoners were voting for a mare.
