Labour wins in Ealing, and I’ve got that soggy feeling

We got home last night, walked to our polling station to vote, then stopped at the Red Lion on the way back to eat. The cold light of morning now shows thatthe Labour party hung on to Ealing Southall, but the Liberal Democrats significantly reduced the margin.

My attention is already on to new and pressing concerns, however: namely,how not to get washed away (Maidenhead, in Berkshire, is where I work). Getting from the train station to the office – a bus trp of 10 minutes – took an hour this morning because of flash flooding and the resultant traffic chaos.
