This is why we are in Government

It's been a hell of a month. No doubt about that.

Even now, every time I see this

it still makes me a bit teary that someone can be so gracious and magnanimous even in the face of defeat.

So it was reassuring to see this tweet this afternoon:

We are doing some real good in Government. Good things are happening that wouldn't be if we weren't there.

For me, there's still a long way to go on immigration generally. But we've achieved what the Tories or Labour would never ever have done.

However much our hearts are hurting right now, we can be so proud of Nick and our ministers for ending the scandal of child detention.

Thanks for (re)posting that, Caron.

I sometimes wonder if the party should be writing from this point of view more often. After all, the main idea behind any party is to get their ideas implemented. If that comes at the cost of loss seats, it is a sad thing, but ultimately a price worth paying.

Price worth paying is maybe going a bit far, but we do need to talk about the good we're doing, and more effectively.

Nobody expected this coalition to be a vote winner for us, but we need to be more proactive at trying to win people back and we need to say things that resonate with them.
