Now I'm not under purdah at the moment, but because I have worked in government and may do again, I'm reluctant to talk about the election. At least here. I love politics and the debate is on as I type but I feel like I can't comment, but not because I have no opinion.
In addition, I've set for myself my own kind of purdah. Huge topics are not being talked about at the moment, some because it would not be wise to mention them here, some because they are too raw to mention here and some because I have no clue what is going on.
The future is ... misty at best. I certainly can't say "The future's bright, the future's orange" least of all because it would suggest the future is a Labour/Lib Dem Coalition.
I'm optimistic though, but can't talk about it. And more importantly don't want to. So I'm not going to. It's nothing personal.
