I wasn't here in 2005.
I'd forgotten about the beautiful silence that engulfs a British General election day.
All campaigning must halt as polls open at 7am.
All media outlets turn to alternative topics (a lengthy interview with Sir Paul MacCartney about vegetarianism was my favourite)as they are barred from mentioning the obvious.
It's a magisterial calm.
At 10pm the polls will close and then.
Hours of results and punditry, interviews, arguments, analysis and post mortem.
I love it!
