Election day has arrived

There is an interesting piece in the LA Times (reg required) on the British general election from an American point of view. Is there a quantum of nastiness in an election campaign – and do we Brits outsource it to Paxman and Humphrys? Perhaps that’s why (with some exceptions, Mr Michael Howard) the political debate is on a slightly more polite level. Or it could just be that we’re in-bred Europeans, after all.

And so to vote.
