How plentiful times would you adopt the group coming 3rd within language of chairs and votes, one contained by administration?
Even though it has happen, I don't accept it now, and never will. Anything approaching democracy have now completely disappeared from politics in this country.
The Lib Dems, who several though were a decent group, have clearly sold their principles in writ to get a share of the limelight, but there are already signs that they are taking a rear legs seat. For the first time that I can remember, the Deputy PM, Nick Clegg, has be told that he will not take over while Cameron is on holiday.
I'd accept it as copious times as it happened. Put simply, the current electoral system is flawed so that at the moment, the party that finished 3rd have more power than the one that finished 2nd.
If we had proportional representation, the party that finished 3rd would own the 3rd most power....
Ironically, labour have be hoist by their own petard on this. Had they actually gone ahead with the electoral reform they promised when they first took charge, they might still have had a utter in the way that the country is run...
As for the subsequent election - who knows? Maybe one of the party will have an overall majority and all this speculation will be unnecessary. Maybe near will be a hung parliament. Going by what Nick Clegg had said, re: the party next to the most votes having the largest mandate to govern, if labour turn out to be the largest bash then they would have the right to the first attempt to try and form a parliament.
If labour then resolve to approach the lib dems with an offer to negotiate, later I'd be amazed if they didn't accept. As for whether a coalition could be formed, that would depend on what concessions labour would fashion.
As for whether the Lib Dems would walk away from a coalition with the tories, I don't doubt for a second that they would. In certainty, I don't doubt for a second that they WILL, irrespective of the outcome of the election. A coalition is not the same as a merger.
ETA: L said, "Anything approaching democracy have now completely disappeared from politics in this country."
Really? 36% of the population voted conservative, & 23% voted LibDem. The current government is represented by the wishes of 59% of the electorate. Can you remember the ending time a government was represented by more than 50% of the constituency members?
"The Lib Dems, who many though were a wearing clothes party, have clearly sold their principles within order to get a share of the limelight, but here are already signs that they are taking a back seat."
Sold their principles?
The increase contained by income tax threshold, helping the lowest paid workers surrounded by society - do you think that came from the tories or the Lib Dems?
The referendum on voting reorganization, giving a fairer voting system for the voting public - would we have had that in need the Lib Dems being in organization?
Exempting the lower and middle earners from the public sector pay freeze, a tory policy, or a libdem policy?
As often as it takes to stop the New Labour morons from getting support in! EVER!
