A Conservative Win In The UK Isn't What Some Might Believe
With no party having the the necessary seats to win the majority, there has to be a coalition between Labour and some other party or the Conservatives and some other party. The logical choice for some is the Liberal Democrats, the party led by Clegg.
There are 29 or so seats held by smaller parties that could bring the conservatives over the 326 seats needed, by it would require more work than Cameron is probably willing to do and may be the coalition would not be as strong.
Still, the concessions being offered show how far the Conservatives in Britain are from their American counterparts.
From the Financial Times:
"Mr Cameron said they could include concessions to Mr Clegg on “fair taxation”, more green policies, the introduction of a “pupil premium” for disadvantaged children and tentative steps towards electoral reform."
In other words, continue the same progressive fabian socialist tax system and the socialist yoke on the people. Not much rollback there, is there?
From the Lib Democrat perspective, "Some Lib Dem MPs and activists suspect they are being lured into a trap, in which they would be seen to be propping up a Tory government making big public spending cuts."
My question for them is, how is it working for the country, whose deficit will eventually crush the country? Such points of views are irrational and liberals would rather drive off the cliff thinking they are right than do the right thing. Such is the position of Farm Animals®.
