I am still amazed by the way that the media still can’t get their mind around the implications of having a coalition government. Some members of the public are not doing to well either.
They seem determined to find winners and losers in the Queen’s Speech. We seem to have two-party leaders who for better or worse (and I have my doubts) have thrown in their lot with each other. Have Cameron or Clegg betrayed their followers? Or did the Labour leadership (by its negotiating stance) betray its followers?
No one “won” the election, (despite some Tories claiming their, almost feudal, “right” to rule,) so no one party can “have their way”. So the alternative is either complete stalemate or a coalition and that means compromise.
