I am intrigued that the formation of an SNP government in Holyrood (albeit a minority one) has had so little impact on the political landscape in England. I would have thought it was quite a kick in the teeth for Gordon Brown, but obviously not.
Since I was away Gordon Brown has also officially become the primeminister in waiting, that seemed to be a bit of a damp squib as well.
Perhaps both these events were so predictable that there was nothing left to say about them when they happened.
So this probably wins some kind of award for most un-interesting post ever...
