Unelected coalition starts to crumble.

Only Britain could give you an unelected dictatorship of this sort. United by a hatred of the working class and their similar yobbish public school backgrounds, the hopeless liberal and Tory poodles of the spivs seized an opportunity to vandalise the country. They loved it so much they agreed a five year deal which the Tories sought to turn into a thousand year Reich with Parliamentary boundary changes that would have advantaged only them. The liberals thought there were never enough of them anyway so suggested a ruse to replace the barmy house of lords with an elected but inevitably neoliberal second chamber. Now it’s all come unstuck. The Bullingdon boys have got the hump and their valets want to pinch them for being so nasty. Result? Stage set for Labour to be more stable and consistently administer the final break up of the welfare state and public services. Thatcher paved the way for Blair. Cameron paved the way for Milliband who like them all before will only complain about the mess he inherited. Meanwhile a Tory rock chick resigns in Corby allowing the first sign of Labour’s new willingness to govern to be seen. More seriously the union languish in the organisation of yet more protest and in the public sector trying to tell their members they must accept the neoliberal pensions deal that represents everything that protest this time last year was seeking to avoid. Rulers losing theplot and so potentially are we.
