    This evening Labour Prime minister resigns from his post as a result of failing to set up a coalition deal with Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg.
    Brown hands in his resignation to the Queen, who accepts.
    Conservative leader David Cameron then receives the Queens blessing to form a new coalition Government with the Liberal Democrats, although at this point in time the details and the inner workings of the deal had not been revealed, neither has the coalition had been verified by the majority of Lib Dem MPs.
    We hope by the morning we will have a greater insight whether we will have a coalition Government or a minority Government, after all three parties failed to win overall majority in last week's election.

    Indeed, good news for the UK.

    Hope the Lib Dems get electoral reform from the Tories, and hope the Tories are ready to take the heat of the very probable economic trouble down the road.

    The Tory party is in charge, so The UK is up for sale, anything you want as long as you have the money.

    oh, so they got rid of that criminal, and now they've got that other one.

    It's the Genoveses and the Gambinos; La Cosa Nostra.

    Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, that is, the most powerful institution in the U.K., (it's the British Federal Reserve), said that, "Whichever party wins this election will have to inflict such painful austerity measures on the British population that they will soon find themselves out of power for a generation."

    http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/finance/edmundconway/100005270/king-election-winner-will-be-out-of-power-for-a-generation/

    So yeah, just like in the US or any other "liberal democracy" for that matter, it doesn't really matter which criminal you vote in; they don't work for YOU.

    ah, "democracy".

    OMG I agree with SouthBeach. Though, that said, the Conservatives are more left than the Democrats in most ways. Labour was getting totalitarian in its big government agenda. Conservatives leavened by real liberals is a good combination.

    In the UK the nearest thing to the republicans are the BNP

    and the DDT

    For some reason, I'm a little troubled by way the change occurred and I'm not sure I'm particularly thrilled with the tory party back.. but.

    Change can be good many times, we'll see what happens, hopefully all will be positive.

    A Tory and Lib Dem Coalition? It's nearly as barmy as that "which woman would you turn straight for?" thread!

    The BMP?
    After successfully throwing all immigrants and dark-skinned individuals out of the country, the BNP then won't even be able to organise a piss-up in the snow!
    Can you imagine Nick Griffin getting to grips with the complicated issues with the British economy?

    Neither can I.

    As for the Tory/Lib Dem coalition:
    I hope it holds successfully and I wish my blessings on them both.

    Sorry, I don't speak Brit_Bloke.

    I take it though that 70% debt to GDP is acceptable to you?


    More acceptable to me than your profile pic.

    Have I given you a reason to launch these personal attacks on me? Or does it just make you feel good to be nasty to people who have different political views than you do?



    Well he is a rabid lefty - are you surprised?

    All I'm saying is don't get all "Obama" with this election and convince yourself that good "change" will take place or that it's a sign of "hope" in politics.

    It's just theatre.

    Actually, I didn't notice.... He hasn't really written anything in the forums that drew my attention... just seemed to be another drone - at best.

    I guess he was just hoping I would notice him.

    Anyway, thanks for the heads up.


    Ooooooh look who's a big bitchy mincer. Can "Republicans" be mincers then?

    We're hardly talking Obama here. Besides, we're British, we don't do that sort of thing. OK except when Diana died.

    Noted. But... she was someone who was worthy of the spotlight. So, it's understandable. She... earned it, I guess you could say.

    I follow elections like this but I cannot get too worked up. As I see it, I do not live in Great Britain and cannot vote in their elections, I do not have the same sense of things that the British do.

    She truly was the princess of all our hearts, like a candle in the wind.

    And I think it's terrible that Mother Theresa had the cheek to die so soon after, and it just serves her right that her death was a mere footnote at the end of an hour's news broadcast covering the country's grief over England's rose.

    And once again another thread becomes all about me.

    You only wish people would pay 1/10 the amount of attention to you as they do to me. icon_lol.gif


    You do know that the above statement would suggest you may be suffereing from a multitude of personality disorders.

    Love your inner child, Southbeach. He needs your love. You don't need attention from the pretend people in the virtual world. You need to give it to yourself.

    It's not your fault Southbeach.

    It's not your fault.

    I love you Southbeach. I love you and your ugly profile pic.

    Oh dear,
    If Cameron and Clegg are to Southbeach and BritBloke, then the coalition Government is doomed from day one!
