...does the leader of a political party with only about 50 seats get to become Deputy Prime Minister to the leader of a political party who won over 350 seats?
The word 'shambles' doesn't do the situation justice. Clearly, Nick Clegg was about as popular with the electorate as lions were with Early Christians in Nero's Rome, yet he is Deputy PM and his henchmen have been invited to join the Cabinet.
It isn't just the Conservative Party who won't like what Cameron has just done. I expect a lot of people have been watching events unfold at home while thinking...Hang on! What's that election loser doing in Government?
Just looking at the figures on the paper, shouldn't the two parties who won the biggest proportion of the popular vote share power? I mean, if this was the Olympics, the man in bronze might as well just kick the man who won silver in the gonads and stand on his pedestal while listening to the national anthem. Bizarre. This will be a very weak Government at a time of economic crisis, which, history tells us, is something of a recipe for disaster.
Thank God Dr Evan Harris lost his seat is all I can say, otherwise, no doubt, the passionate abortionist and advocate of euthanasia would be sitting around the Cabinet table today exchanging pleasantries with Cameron! Also, if you look at the picture of No.10 Downing Street on the left, you will notice there is no disabled access there either. Shocking.
