    Coalition in crisis after Clegg turns on Cameron.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 07 Aug 2012, 11:47 am

    After one of the flagship policies of the Liberal Democrat part of the coalition was destroyed by Tory backbenchers, the Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat, Nick Clegg, has attacked his Tory partner, David Cameron, for allowing Tory backbench rebels to dump the promised reform of the House of Lords.

    In return for this underhand act Nick Clegg said yesterday that he and his Liberal Democrat members of the government were going to ensure that the Tories would lose something just as important the next time that they are looking for Lib-Dem support on any main Westminster vote.

    Read THIS from Reuters-UK.

    I have to ask..... Is this the first signs of this unnatural coalition falling apart, and do any of you think that this government will go to full term - or not ?

    Yeah, an exercise in gerrymandering that the Tories are planning, whereby they are going to redraw the constituency boundaries to generate more Tory seats is not going to be supported by the Lib-Dems in the coalition government after their flagship policy of House of Lords reform was scrapped.

    It is all starting to get a bit nasty in the coalition playpen ! Twisted Evil

    And neither should they support this gerrymandering policy as if they do they will be guilty of helping the Tories get seats that they don't deserve.

    There is going to come a time soon when the Liberal Democrat politicians are going to be forced to be honourable again as they stand up for what they believe in.

    Many of the true Liberal Democrats must have known that eventually this alliance they have with the Tories would damage their credibility as Liberal Democrats and that at that point this uncomfortable coalition would no longer be able to stand.

    So Papa, what you are actually saying is that while the Liberal Democrats keep supporting the Tories in this coalition they are not being "honourable" ?

    No Angie, I do not mean that directly, but I do mean that if they have to throw out their flagship policies to enable and support Tory plans they are bound to come across specific clashes in Liberal Democrat and Tory philosophies.

    In actuality these two parties are just about as far apart politically as any two parties can get and yet here we see them bending over backwards in order to get a bit of power while they throw their principles out of the window. THAT.... is "dishonourable" !
