This could be the most interesting five years in government we have seen for many years, easily rivalling the dog days of Tory rule in the 1990s, as they tore each other apart before years of irrelevance.
Now they're unfettered by us pesky Lib Dems, the Tories can do all those things they wanted to do but which we stopped them from doing, like bring in the Snooper's Charter, allowing more people to monitor what we do online. I feel for the poor souls who are going to have to trawl through the myriad Jeremiads like this one, searching in vain for the latest outpourings of lunacy from the bearded maniacs in Syria. I assume taxes will rise to pay for decent coffee for the security services as they fight to stay awake. I'm with you, guys.
The Tories can also throw away the rotten Human Rights Act, a hateful law drafted to bring into English law all that 'protecting-people-after-one-of-the-most-devastating-and-destructive-wars-in-the-history-of-mankind' nonsense which British lawyers drafted for a broken European continent way back when we mattered. Well, fair enough, I say. Now we have Dave, Theresa and Michael guarding our freedoms, we have no need of this namby-pamby European liberty stuff, do we?
That's fine anyway, because we'll be out of Europe soon, whatever. Not that the EU has anything whatsoever to do with the European Convention on Human Rights but, well, it's all the same really, isn't it? It's all foreigners telling us what to do. Who needs a 'right to life' anyway? Foreigners, that's who!
And as for the BBC, well, don't get me started. Bunch of trots, with their balance and extensive coverage of democracy. Who do they think they are?! Hmm?!
No, we're in line for some common sense and decent British values at long last. And I, as a Liberal Democrat, welcome that because I am going to use this corner of the internet to say loudly and probably too often, 'do you get it now, do you get what we did for five years, stopping this utter lunacy and frankly petty behaviour?'
To the 10,000 - and counting - new members of the Lib Dems, welcome. Enjoy the ride: it's going to be very, very exciting and our collective and growing voice is needed more than it ever has been.
