After following the UK elections on the BBC and Twitter, I must say Barack Obama gave a better victory speech than David Cameron. Cameron’s jubilant “sweetest victory of all” speech at the Conservative Party headquarters lacked the poetry of Obama’s victory speeches in 2008 and 2012.
The talking heads on the BBC were all right. There was a funny moment when former Lib-Dem leader Paddy Ashdown said he would eat his hat if the exit poll was right.
“If this exit poll is right I will publicly eat my hat,” says Paddy Ashdown.
