For the good of England, I shall resign in September
or now, nows good too.
Thought it was only Quebec that didn’t like the idea of the British monarch being Canadian head of state? (For the obvious stroppy French reasons).
Wasn’t there a joke about an American and a Canadian comparing their respective Heads of State… The American said that electing a President stopped a complete moron getting to be head of state simply because he happened to be the eldest son of the previous complete moron to have held the job.
The Canadian simply said “George Bush”….
As the coalition was annonucedbetween the Libs and THEM, the noise of protest from Liberal supporters behind a barricade forty or fifty yards away it was so loud it stopped Clegg and Cameron from properly being heard. These were the Liberal supporters and grassroots party activists who were ferociously angry that their party will now evermore be seen as Tory and fear a backlash from those who wanted the Libs to be a left-leaning alternative to an obnoxiously right-wing Labour Government.
You-tube up the BBC press reports and listen to what I mean… I’ve not heard such a loud, angry, sustained protest since the Poll Tax. This is a slow fuse in the Libs that won’t go away. For the price of a little bit of government allied to a right-wing party, Clegg may well have split his own.
As a disillusioned former Labour Party member, I’m going to have to think long and hard before giving the Liberals my vote again - at least my New Labour MP lost six thousand votes on last time!
