The Balance Of Power
The plummeting markets have been stayed a little by Cameron's statesmanlike pronouncements on a coalition with the Liberal Democrats. Voting reform shall be a tricky issue, difficult to navigate through; yet Cameron's pledge to make the number of voters per seat equal while retaining the past-the-post system is eminently sensible. Additionally his pledges to do away with the dreaded ID card scourge, not handing over power to the EU and shoring up our defences are extremely attractive. Will Brown make way, though, once the Cons/LibDem alliance has been forged? As John Major delicately pointed out, Brown's behaviour is less than dignified; he reminds one of a child that has spat its biscuit and wants it back. The comparison between he and Cameron is a laughable one. The next twenty-four hours should be very interesting indeed.
