via Andrew Marr: Why the pundits got it wrong – and what the parties should do next.

For me, there are two especially important points.

Firstly, the way the ‘Two Eds’ defended Labour’s economic record, was fundamentally wrong. Andrew Marr gives an alternative explanation that if deployed effectively could well have been decisive in determining the outcome of the election.

Secondly, he ominously describes The Tory Government’s biggest risk being the unpredictability of what he calls ‘Big Money’.

Personally, I tend to agree with both of these last two points. But surely in terms of relative risk, the Conservatives are better placed than Labour to deal with the volatility of Big Money?
