Not really my business, but I wonder if we could have an instant re-think on the duration of the next Parliament ?

Nobody wants to seen another election within months - we're bored enough with this campaign. But should a deal short of a formal coalition include a pledge to go to the country in, say, one year's time ? This might deter minor parties from messing around by threatening to combine on strategic issues and defeat the next tenants of Number 10 in a confidence or other major vote.

Then maybe all parties should be made to produce real and final manifestos, rather than campaigning on errata slips, half-baked overnight ideas and "red lines"....
