A New Day Dawns with Historic Coalition Government!

So, after all the hoopla since the General Election last Thursday, it all happened very quickly late yesterday. The Labour Party were unsuccessful with making a deal with the LibDems so Gordon Brown resigned and made way for David Cameron to become the new Prime Minister. Gordon Brown also resigned as leader of the Labour Party. Deputy Harriet Harman replaces him until a successor is elected

David Cameron is the youngest Prime Minister for 198 years, and Nick Clegg, the Liberal Democrat leader as Deputy Prime Minister, will be the first Liberal for nearly 90 years to hold power in Britain.

I find it all very exciting. A new day has dawned with a new government. The creation of a Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition is a historic event. Today, they start working together for the good of the country.

What are your thoughts about the new Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government? Are you pleased? Excited? Worried? What are your expectations?


  1. I would be terrified if we had a Conservative majority government - I remember the 1980s all too well - but a coalition should curb the worst of conservative policy. I think Labour couldn't have stayed in power ..... they need some time in opposition to regroup, elect a new leader, and IMO get back to what grassroots Labour is all about. They've lost their way.

  2. I should think the Conservatives have changed a lot since the 1980s. I agree with you that the LibDems will offer a moderating influence on the Conservative policy. I think the two parties will balance each other nicely in this coalition government.

    I also agree with your opinion of the Labour Party. They have lost their way.
