Gerald Warner, one of the best analysts in the business, gets it right in his daily politics blog in the Telegraph:

“The Tories have not “won” this election: they have simply gained fewer than 50 seats more than the most discredited government in British history. This is a humiliation for the Tories and a grave danger to the country… Everyone in Britain, of whatever political stripe, knows that it did not have to be like this. Any competent leader at the head of a bog-standard, identifiably Tory, real-world Conservative Party would be ensconced in Number 10 today with an overall majority of around 100.”

A popular bumper sticker coming to London soon: “Do Brits Really Deserve Better?”
