fare thee well

The British election has reached its conclusion and Gordon Brown left office this afternoon. He spoke movingly in his farewell speeches and I think he'll be missed a lot more than people realise right now. I have to confess that I hope he gets to have a good rest and to be with his family in a way that I don't imagine is possible when one is leading a country. He certainly looked more relaxed today than he has for years. The queasy feelings about what is to come in British politics remain.
