A thread to share just how close we come to them. We only have to get lucky once. They have to get lucky all the time. Had some interesting conversations recently. Still working on them. Hopefully some good stuff to come. One I can probably reveal now is from a source inside Nick Clegg's inner circle when he was .Deputy PM - telling me how he was in tears packing his stuff to leave when the election results came in in 2015. He (apparently) really hadn't anticipated the results and losing his position, and was somwhat shellshocked trying to pack his pants drawer etc.upon being told to leave.
