    I've been writing 6th May all morning. I think I may want to wish away a month. Nothing to do with your coverage of past electorial events, just the knowledge of what we are going to get for the next 4 weeks :-(

    Cameron left out a reference to gays that was in his draft speech. Deliberate or a gaff? With Tory support among gay voters reported to be down sharpish after Cameron's early bungle on gay rights and Chris Grayling's gaff at the weekend, has Cameron chucked in the pink towel and returned to a focus on more traditional core Tory voters?

    Clearly desperate times call for desperate measures: Conservative HQ has said that Cameron left the reference out by mistake and will repeat his speech this afternoon, this time including the original reference to 'straight' and 'gay' voters.

    They are clearly so nervous not to offend that it would be funny to see if we could persuade them to include 'bisexual' and 'transgender' as well.

    40 years of PM reporting on General Elections. That must have exactly covered all my voting. Despite your excellent coverage of the current election, please could we have some relief, say, after the 5.30 news ? Something rustic like an abridged version of Countryfile: Up sheep, down sheep perhaps ?

    Will there come a time before election day when the politicians have the guts to spell out their tax and spend plans or will we go into the next parliament on a vote and hope basis.

    They expect us to trust them but do they think we've forgotten what they did. Someone please please put an entry on the ballot paper saying "None of the above" so we can show them how cross we are.
