Well, that's a relief.
Old Nige's prognostickation engine called it correctly (if cautiously), and the native good sense and decency of the electorate prevailed. Phew. Now I can stand down the prognostickation engine for five years, with any luck.
Meanwhile, I devoutly hope the Labour party will consign Corbyn, McDonnell and co to what radicals like to call the 'dustbin of history', leave this shameful episode in the history of the party behind, and re-form as a decent and credible Loyal Opposition. That is what's needed now.
And with that, I retire from the political arena again.
