We're beginning Day 3 and I am already suffering from information overload as never been before in a British General Election. At 7 am doing the morning web crawl I felt queasy. Out there on the internet ocean the day's tsunami of analysis and comment is forming ready to engulf via media old and new. The trouble is -- as people in the USA know already -- it is comment built upon comment built upon comment. It doesn't matter whether it's tweeted, sms'd, social networked or rss'd in the end there is so little data of any substance. We are gorging a multi-layered club sandwich with no meat, if you will excuse a further metaphor.
