The election is finally on. This one promises to be the dirtiest in living memory with the two main parties fighting entirely on negative issues about who is the worst party to run the country.
Is this what we have descended to? American style opportunist politics, designed only to play on the fears of a deluded population, pumped full of anti-terror advice and false claims about the "evil" invading foreign hourdes.
At least one party is trying to campaign on a positive note. The Lib Dems have already announced their 10 positive reasons to vote for them. My only hope is that they don't get drawn into this deplorable pattern of mud-slinging.
