Prompted by a compliment from my daughter in law, Mellorview revives today for the period leading up to the General Election on May 7th 2015. The subject matter for each post will be exclusively political, from a local and national perspective. It will also be an exercise in brevity, trying to avoid long rants and diatribes. Just one man’s view on the process and the progress.
It will be interesting to see how it develops. Tonight on ITV and Sky, the only major televised debate will take place. Seven party leaders all trying to make their point in as memorable a way as possible.
2010 showed us the power of these debates, how else did Nick Clegg achieve such high office? I expect it will be an almighty bun fight and those most used to thinking on their feet and with the sharpest wits will gain the most. Though it may yet prove to underpin the widely held view that “All politicians are the same”
Will it change anyone’s mind?
