I feel like I’m at political Alton Towers. Everywhere I look there is fun. This is going to be fucking great!

While this is the latest quote from Malcolm Tucker (@jessearmstrong1) it could well summon up the feelings of the person pulling the constitutional strings of government as we speak, Cabinet Secretary Gus O’Donnell. The FT notes that he has potentially played a key part in moving us towards a written (or at least better codified) constitution by writing a “Cabinet Office Manual” and publishing this snippet on the formation of government.

I’m slightly relieved that we’re at least being guided by slightly more transparent rules, but the fact that G.O.D. was born and still resides in South London gives me the hope for the breakup of London into South and North.
