The conduct of the general election in some constituencies was lamentable. It wasn't the politicians' fault. It was the fault of those tasked with conducting the election - the Returning Officers and the Electoral Commission. The chairwoman of the Electoral Commission has written and uttered many weasel words over the last few days, trying to excuse herself from any blame at all.
She must not be allowed to get away with it, and I suspect if there is one thing that unites Clegg and Cameron, it is a desire for the next election to be conducted in a more professional and proper manner than the last one was.
They should send a signal that the kind of unprofessionalism and the poor attitude we have witnessed will not be tolerated. How do they do that? Well a start would be to sack the chairwoman of the Electoral Commission and announce an immediate review into its conduct. Personally, I would close it down and return all of its functions to the Home Office so it is properly accountable.
And I would then look at postal voting and do whatever needs to be done to ensure that the terrible things that have happend in the past two elections can never be repeated.
