I first noticed something was wrong at the last election, when my party won.
We're not supposed to win. That's not what we're for! We don't win things, we lose but win a moral victory, and then when the other lot are in we can complain about how they're getting everything wrong, taking away our freedoms and so on. That's the way it's meant to work - they have the power, we have the moral superiority.
