Feeling my age?

Just been looking through the election results and seeing lots of familiar names which conjures back memories of undergraduate-dom. I see two Lib Dems I knew at LSE – one in the year above, the other in the year below – got elected, while a former work colleague who shared an office with me and several others also ot elected. As if that wasn’t enough, there was also someone else who was in my year at LSE (assuming its the same person) standing in the same seat as one of those who got elected. And one of the women I worked with last year improved the Tory swing in Leicestershire North West.

It rather worries me when MPs start being people like me. I might have to grow up now...

Tony Blair's Labour won with around 60 more seats than the other parties put together. But you would be hard pressed to know based on the news currently doing the rounds (Labour MPs: when can we get rid of Blair).

Tories got around 200 seats (despite not seeing their share of the vote increase from 33% last time around) while the Lib Dems went up 5% to 23% and 10 seats to 62.

Winners and losers all around it seems.
