I am not very will versed on UK politics being an American. So i really dont have much to say but i do know he is very important being the prime minister and considering the 1 trillion going around in the bail out i find anyone resigning to be fishy. or is it just cycle?

These kind of things remind me of when i heard on c2c about an agenda to rid the world of the global banks. I

This is about The Labour Party wanting to get a coalition with the Liberal Democrats. There could be no coalition with Gordon Brown still in charge, so he's got to go if there's any chance of the Liberals joining labour. He has to go anyway, but doing so now gives the slight possiblity of a Rainbow Coalition, of Liberals Labour and other smaller parties.

very interesting times

edit to add, there is nothing fishy about this.

Almost three-quarters of Britons have considered emigrating this year, with Australia as the most popular destination, according to a new survey. The survey carried out by foreign exchange broker Currency UK found that 31 percent of respondents cited the poor state of the British economy as the reason for wanting to leave, while 23 percent blamed the lack of job prospects and 19 percent said they are worried about the outcome of last week's election.

"Our survey highlights that many Brits are concerned by the prospect of a hung Parliament and that the next four years will be dominated by huge tax rises, cuts in public service and inflation," Currency UK senior account manager Adrian Jacob said.

The numbers have dramatically risen compared to Currency UK's last survey on emigration in 2005, when only 25 percent of respondents said they had considered leaving Britain. About one in 10 of the 1,029 people surveyed said that a change in the pace of life was the main reason they wanted to emigrate.

Saw this on Zero Hedge earlier but the site is down due to the crazy market volatility. I found this interesting (and laughable considering it said the U.S. and Spain, talking about from the frying pan to the fire). Either way, the U.K. is going to end up austerity no matter what coalition gets formed. Brown put himself on the altar for nothing.

To be honest he had to go, he's never actually been voted in as Prime Minister of the country by the electorate and he has been very unpopular. He had his chances early on in his premiership to go to the electorate, where he probably would have won, but he flip flopped and inturn people began to question his judgement.

Still I'd rather have a Labour Lib dem coalition that a Conservative Lib dem coalition anyday

If we get a Lib-lab coalition, that means the following.
We get an(other) unelected PM, leading a coalition of two unelected parties. See the problem?
Admittadly, there would be one good effect. Namely, that the public uproar would be huge, causing there to be another election within the year. At which point, people would (hopefully) hate Labour even more, and be disgusted with the Lib-Dems for proping up the failing party and ignoring the voice of the public.

What a mess! I really do think that we need to get a clear idea of leaders then let us the public vote on who will be our prime minister,

I for one would like to have a leader that we have elected rather than just given a random politician,

From what im aware its not impossible to have a re election late in the year..

Why would you prefer lib dem and labour instead of conservative? it amazes me how much labour have contributed to the destruction of britain since they've been in power yet people still side with them. Don't get me wrong I'm no tory by any means but anythings got to be better than those corrupt lying scumbags. And what also annoys me is the majority of the people voted for conservative, but the way things are going it's looking like labour will be in power, and we call this a democracy!

Even with a lib-lab coalition the coalition would still not have an overall majority....

That would mean that the fate of the government would be in the hands of the 4th parties such as the Ulster unionists / SDP / Plaid Cymru etc...

Would a government made of so many smaller parties be a strong and consistent Government??

I think not!!!

This is Gordon Browns latest attempt to steal power away from the people that voted... Labour already sold our sovereignty without a referendum to Brussels in the form of the Lisbon Treaty.... Now he wants to steal the election and form a government of losers.

I can tell you this much, if Gordon succeeds in his plan I will personally be organising daily protests through the streets of London, and I'm sure millions will follow me in this cause.

If Labour attempt to steal power from the people then I guarantee there will be Civil unrest.

The Conservative party won the election, most votes, most seats. We should have a Conservative Government right now.

I wouldn't be surprised if the deal on offer to the Lib dems is Gordon brown stands down and Nick Clegg emerges as the new coalition leader and will become PM.

If this comes to pass, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see a large bomb in central London.

No... lets have a re-election NOW... i reckon this thing has been rigged anyway... I'm pretty sure 3/4 of Britain wanted Labour out after their disastrous time in charge...

Democracy does not work like that though. We do not have elections for 2nd and 3rd to win the election, and the 1 in 1st gets nothing. The people went against the labour, and voted overwhelmingly to get labour out, in there worst election in 80 years, with losing 90 seats.

Gordon Brown had better be gone before September! Unelected and clinging on to power. Also something that really annoys me is that everyone blames the Conservatives for the current state of the UK and accuses them of helping the rich and ignoring the poor, but as someone in their 40's I remember the disaster of labour in the 70's (who can forget the save it campaign, the general strikes and unrest when they nearly bankrupt the country and the subsequent (albeit quite harsh) rescue by the Cons in the 80's (yes I did as Norman Tebbit suggested and I got on my bike and went and looked for work elsewhere, successfully!) and by 1997 the UK actually had regained a very strong foothold in the global economy!

By 2010 - Gordon Brown and Tony B(liar) have reduced the UK to rubble - we're almost becoming a third world country who care more about handing out benefits to those who have never contributed anything to society in order to create a "socialist utopia" Who the heck is paying for this - oh that's right me (and all the other taxpayers - don't get me wrong, I value the NHS and a welfare system that looks after those who CANNOT look after themselves, but not those who just can't be bothered!)

So it's no conspiracy, it's just about time that the man who sold the gold to fund an indebted country, heaving at the seams with (non-economic) migrants and a vast indigenous population of "entitled to it all, whilst contributing nothing" stood down and let common sense prevail

And I might add, since 2002, the economy and wealth of the nation has been built on ever increasing house prices and personal debt, so much so that the average working man has no chance of even being able to afford a 2 bed semi and retire debt free - and of course if he does then his pension will also be taxed!

Oh and for the heck of it, I don't care if the Tories bring back fox hunting, it provides much needed rural employment and deals with an ever destructive vermin [/flame

Sorry... don't like your last comment.....

I think foxes are cute animals and shouldn't hunted down... after all it is us who have taken their habitat away from them!!

How would you like it if i were hunting you down for your knickers and bra?

Not if you keep chickens - who are also very cute! And the killing of foxes continues even with the legislation, they just shoot, poison and trap them now, rather than give them a sporting chance!

Labour have improved the NHS which is very important to me, They brought in the minimum wage. Most people I know have done pretty well under a Labour government. In the last 13 years the quality of lfe for the majority of British people has been improved by a Labour government.

You can't blame the world financial crisis on Labour and we would be in a worse position if we had followed Conservative policy when the collapse began.

You think the Tory boys are gonna be better for the country. I guess we'll see.

I don't want to be ruled by a bunch of public school toffs, cos thats what they are a bunch of rich toffs. They don't represent me in any way.

Thing is I remember a time when you went into hospital and got cured - not coming out with more disease than when you went it (mrsa, c diff etc) There are more managers and non-medical targets under Labour, so I'm sorry but having lived through both regimes I know who I would rather be in charge, but I would like to ask in what particular area you believe the NHS has improved under Labour?

There are so many "public school toffs" in the Labour party I don't know where to begin and I'm sorry but this argument is just so old.

Who can forget Mr Blair's decision to send his own children to the rather expensive London Oratory, whilst denying the working man the opportunity to send his kids there!
