British Election Rashomon

Was a middle-of-the-road victory with diminished majority ever really in doubt for Tony Blair's Labour party? Well, that's not going to stop pundits right and left from reading the English Breakfast tea leaves and seeing what they like.

Kos was just plain wrong. But you have to click through this Instapundit link to get a flavor of his craven mendacity in hiding behind reader emails to suggest a point of view that is to his liking but unsupported by the facts.
