Yesterday's 'winners' may yet end up as losers
IF last year's general election was a pencil revolution, then this campaign had more of a gun-to-the-head-at-the-ballot-box feel about it.
The Government may have won the battle yesterday but when it comes to the war -- the trust of the electorate -- the stability treaty campaign has left many casualties behind.
In that respect there are elements of a Pyrrhic victory here. The relentlessly negative campaign had so many people switching for the 'off' button. At the end of all the debate, people felt just as confused.
