And so General Election campaign 2010 has begun in earnest, with 6th May being pencilled in as the most probable date, pitting melty-faced, sad sack Gordon Brown against perma-grin walking charisma/swarm merchant David Cameron, with Nick ‘yes I am relevant’ Clegg scrabbling along the floor picking up odd votes and seats, the electoral system’s equivalent of a homeless pickpocket.
