REMEMBER HOW APPALLED THE BRITS WERE...:
The tricky art of Campromise: Coalitions always break down. Britain needs a leader...fast (Fraser Nelson, 09/05/2010, News of the World)
DAVID CAMERON was right: Britain does have 'broken politics.' To see how broken, head down to the bookmakers.
The Tories won TWO MILLION more votes than Labour. A greater share than Blair's last election.
So who is the bookies' favourite to be the next Home Secretary? Er, Nick Clegg, leader of the Lib Dems.
Labour's Ed Balls - who was lucky to hold on to his seat - is now second- favourite to be Foreign Secretary.
When you see Harriet Harman STILL at 25-1 to be the next PM you know how desperate things really are.
The voters have spoken. Cam inspired the greatest Tory comeback since 1931. But the Westminster system is slanted against Tories. So he now needs the support of the Lib Dems to pass laws. Formal talks start in the Cabinet Office tomorrow.
Hung parliaments mean one thing in Britain: a new election. Coalitions always break down, usually within 18 months. Meanwhile, Britain is facing a fiscal emergency. We need leadership. Fast.
Cam has a four-stage plan: bring stability now, then seek a proper mandate when the next election comes.
