I am glad that LibDems did not join with Labour, how can you go from finger pointing over the murder of Dr David Kelly to kiss and make up in a few meetings...

Regardless of the spin over the war, the aspect, Dr David Kelly should not be forgotten nor the stance and finger pointing of my MP Norman Baker, the LibDem Shadow Secretary of State for Transport.

Like elsewhere, we in my neck of the woods are still fighting the adverse effects of the last sell off by the Tories.

Even I will give Cameron the chance to stuff it up, and Nick the chance to sell us out.

Thought this clip of Adam Boulton getting punked by Alastair Campbell might cheer everyone up......Sorry if its been posted before.......

www.youtube.com...

I think we can all agree that at the end of the day all the parties have moved so far into the centre that there's not much between them now. The one thing they all share is a massive link with big business, this makes them all the more corruptible.

This is modern democracy, its like a dictatorship only no-one is accountable and the trains don't run on time...........

Anyone heard how Obama got in touch first..?

Re-forming the special relationship.

But also, Obama never really liked Gordon Brown in my oppinion.

I watched this live, thought it was hilarious., definately thought it was going to come to blows, really was pmsl...got to disagree with you blup I think Campbell would have him no probs.

I must say Alistair Campbell has been a bit of a rock for Labour since the Election and he has been everywhere trying to defend Brown and his party whilst some Labour notaries have been very noticeable by their absence.

You reckon? Hmmmm.... I dunno man, Boulton looks like he could do some damage mate... then again, Campbell didn't look too bothered by him.



Would be interesting to see though.

I know New Labour is dead!!! Best bit of political news, I've heard for at least 13 years!!!

Oh and Downing street squattor evicted! I just hope Brown hangs himself on Westminster bridge within er... like the next week! After all he has reason to after the way he has treated both the army, and debt infrastucture, debt, of our country.

P.S When I saw the speech, I only saw an upset, trained politician, being an insincere ****

I must say to my Commonwealth bretheren, welcome to Canadian politics. This is where the little parties play key roles and I think for the democratic process in the long run is a good thing. It slows legislation down(pros and cons) and opens up issues to more debate and opinion.

It's dangerous to have a large majority gov't. Legislation tends to get rubberstamped through and little debate happens. That's not good for democracy. The negative side is that it can slow down action on important issues but if a clear path that is good is proposed then it would be approved.



I find the speed at to which all this happened to be very interesting. Given what's going on with the EURO I imaging there was considerable pressure to get the government sitting with a clear leader and structure to make sure speculators didn't have an excuse to target the GBP more than they have. Although EURO regions sources are taking pot shots at the UK for not contributing more to the EURO "Shock and Awe"

Waste of money.


Good luck my British friends. Give it a chance. I do believe more voices in the legislative halls is a good thing in the long term for a healthy democracy. It may be slow and painful at times. However, over legislation is also painful.

Very true and it is concerning. Atleast when Labour was in power we understood to a certain degree what we could expect with cuts and increases in taxes and public spending etc. Now we are facing a term of extreme unexpectancy as the Tories have clearly marked in their manifesto that 87% of their cuts have not been detailed. This basically means the public is not being told what services are going to suffer, where the tax increases are going to be etc. We are going into the Tory era completely blind and i dont think it was a wise move by the 1/3 of the UK population to so readily vote them into power. The 1/3 are clearly thinking the grass is greener on the other side but i'm pretty sure they'll find that it isnt even grass thats growing, its moss.

I'm honestly concerned as i am a middle-class citizen and i do not see any benefits coming my way by this power change, if anything i see a detremental effect to the average UK citizen. If i were rich i'd be super happy, if i were poor i'd be contemplating suicide.

With the Tory agenda of Cuts and the Lib agenda of spending , these two policies are like oil and water!

The posting of Nick Clegg as Deputy Prime Minister is a public indication of how Cameron has screwed the Lib Dems.
How many DPM have had any real power?

expect to see another election within the next 18 months against a fitter leaner Labour Party
