Five days after the country went to the polls and we still do not know who will govern our country or who will be Prime Minister.
Meanwhile, the Tories and Lib Dem leaders continue to meet secretly to thrash out little deals to satisfy their personal ambitions or the ambitions of their parties while the big hitters of Labour put out constant probes and feelers to test the waters or to force the issues.
Welcome to the world of hung parliaments - a world of dithering, shady deals in secret meetings and murky, clandestine politicking. A world where manifesto pledges mean nothing and all that matters is for each party to negotiate their own little slice of pie. A world where support for the government is dependent on backroom deals and money pledged to the causes of the minor parties.
This is the world we will see more and more of if we go through with electoral reform and some version of proportional representation. You think your vote counts for nothing now? Wait till we have PR - then you'll know how little difference your vote makes!
Sure, you'll have a parliament that more accurately reflects the way the people voted nationally, but we do not elect MPs "nationally" - but constituency by constituency. You'll have no connection to the House of Commons, the parliament will be more detached and remote than ever and your vote will actually make even less difference than it does now.
Instead we'll have dodgy deals to support dithering governments. This is only the first stage. Once this is over and we have some sort of coalition government, then the real horse trading begins - day by day, week by week, vote by vote - and none of this will have the government we want - just the government the political elite want.
