It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Coalitions...

Poor old Nick Clegg, he has three dreadful options to pick from:

  1. Join with Tories - big differences there, so possibly short term stable, but long term it must explode.
  2. Join with Labour et al. - probably unstable and Labour have offered concessions in the past and failed to deliver.
  3. Join with no one and face another general election, probably doing worse that the current one.

Which ever way you look at it, it's unpalatable. Although popular with their own supporters more than 60% of the population really hate the Tories. Labour clearly lost the election and even with Gordon out of the way, they are not the most popular people in the UK this week.

To add insult to injury, whatever the colour of government it's not going to be popular, with massive spending cuts and tax rises required to balance the books and head of Greek style bailout....
