Thanks to Steve Bell in Saturday’s Guardian for the image.

I had decided to make no comment here on the current political situation mainly because, despite intense interest and strong opinions, I have  a poor grasp of the permutations of the various options in front of us.

However, when I  read Stephen Fry’s brilliant analysis I wanted to commend it to anyone searching for a clear exposition of how the events of last Thursday’s election appears to one of liberal (small ‘l’) persuasion: Stalemate: PR and PR, Ice Cream, Bananas and Fudge.
