Oh Dear

How will we ever shut Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Al Gore up now about Tony Blair's virtual theft of the United Kingdom's Prime Minister's job given that he didn't win the popular vote?

THE CONSERVATIVES won England in the general election, in votes but not in seats. Both the Conservatives and Labour gained more than eight million English votes, but the Conservatives finished more than 50,000 ahead.

Why, that's less than one football stadium!

P.S. Yes, I know that England is not synonymous with the UK. But for the record, Labour did only get about one-third of the overall vote. How's that for a mandate.
