Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'The newspaper today took my breath away. Such a landslide I had not expected. Yesterday morning, reading the "Telegraph" I felt a stalemate possible, or a small Tory Labour majority, with the Liberals holding the balance. Thank God that at any rate is destroyed. Liberals will now have to line up with one or other of the two main parties, and we'll have a clear-cut position.'
