Now that covers a multitude of interpretations! Let's start with a classic.

Tree at my Window
by Robert Frost

Tree at my window, window tree,
My sash is lowered when night comes on;
But let there never be curtain drawn
Between you and me.

Vague dream head lifted out of the ground,
And thing next most diffuse to cloud,
Not all your light tongues talking aloud
Could be profound.

But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed,
And if you have seen me when I slept,
You have seen me when I was taken and swept
And all but lost.

That day she put our heads together,
Fate had her imagination about her,
Your head so much concerned with outer,
Mine with inner, weather.

Well that was a bit of a shock, wasn't it?

The Lib Dems overturned a solid Tory majority, to gain a seat the Tories took for granted.

After demolishing the failed Labour party's "Red Wall" in Hartlepool, I suppose the Tories thought they were indestructible.

But Amersham is a place I have a particular affection for, because I was born there.

2019 results
Conservative 30,850 (55.4%)
Lib Dems 14,627 (26.3%)
Labour 7,166 (12.9%)
Green 3,042 (5.5%)

2021 results:
Lib Dems 21,517 (56.7%)
Conservative 13,517 (35.5%)
Green 1,480 (3.9%)
Labour 622 (1.6%)
Others 846 (2.2%)

I think a lot of the change came about due to opposition to HS2.

But most significant to my my mind is the collapse in the Labour vote.

Obviously, nobody expected them to win in a place like this, and under the undemocratic FFTP electoral system which Labour supports, people will vote tactically.

But even so, if the country's supposed major opposition party can't even manage 2% of the vote (let alone the 5% required to keep their deposit), it really shows to me that they are in terminal decline.

No doubt the forum's Champagne Socialists will disagree, but obviously that is their right. Bring it on!

Although I fully expect the usual ad hominem remarks instead of constructive debate, in support of the dying party they adhere to.
