131 – Tuesday 11 May 2010 : coalition

In politics on May 11, 2010 by Gabor Tagged: ,

The dance is over (see 7 May).  We have a Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition government.

My thoughts are that given the Parliamentary arithmetic, this was the right thing.  The Tories got most MPs.  The previous Labour government LOST.  A Labour/Lib Dem coalition would not have had a Parliamentary majority, and would have no electoral legitimacy.

Now I expect the politicians to make it work.  I am sure they will.
