Check out Joan Tintor's post on "Debt Before Dishonour" It's brilliant.
Ellie May was seen by many (this commentator included) as a huge benefactor for the CPC .
Early on she offered the promise that she would steal Grit and Dipper votes as in the volume that cows emit methane.
We could see a Parliament with the left of centre vote split four ways, leaving the CPC with a chance for a solid majority with popular support in the 35% range.
But no, dammit, her wingnuttiness is proving to be a real detriment to CPC hopes.
But then again, maybe that's her strategy.
