Pedantic? Moi?

It has come to my attention that the more disreputable members of the mainstream media are describing today as the tenth anniversary of the Blair Premiership. This is, in fact not the case. Although the Election was on Thursday 1 May, the result that gave Blair his majority, the 330th Labour seat, did not come until the early hours of Friday morning, and Buckingham Palace sent for the Labour Leader later that day.

If today does represent a political tenth anniversary, it is ten years since John Major's last full day in power.

That is all.
