It might have been Lenin, who is often quoted as saying (although I can find no reliable source): "A lie told often enough becomes the truth." Who would have thought that, deep down, when he's not being all pumped up with new-found passion, David Cameron might well be a secret Leninist?

Ed Miliband has made it clear, on numerous occasions, he won't get into bed with Nicola Sturgeon. In fact some of his most passionate responses have come when dealing with this question. We now know Russell Brand has more chance of securing a cabinet position as there is clearly a very good chance he and Ed have at least shared a bed.

We are only looking like a country forced into muddied and muddled coalitions because none of our leaders is good enough for us to vote for them. And the one-that is can't, in any circumstance, win other than in coalition. Sturgeon is cleaning the u-bend. It should be whistle-clean by the time Boris and Dave step up.

Above all we need a discourse that empowers people to the point where they feel they can act in, influence and own each election, rather than just watching from the side lines. Without these things, politics will continue to struggle to inspire the British public.

Swathes of British society have been categorised in this way by the Conservatives and they are slowly being ground into the dirt. And now they might end up in court faced with the prospect of a crippling bill for simply exercising their ancient right to plead innocent.
