Three hours later, we saw the Exeter result. Nothing ironic about that. Decent, non-radical Middle Englanders saw the local Conservative Party offering it a straight vote for repressive "family values" - and walked away. The Labour candidate, fighting scrupulously on national issues, won by 11,000 votes.
Suddenly, fresh air and daylight seem to have broken in on a rather marshy corner of the moral maze.
