That makes it stronger not weaker.

It also provides a ready made excuse for parties to ditch their pre election promises ‘If we had won power alone we would have…. honest….’

Most importantly, it isn’t coalition governments that got us into this mess.

My sense of the feeling in the country is we all know it is going to hit the fan after the election. We all know we are being lied to. We all we have a hard time coming.

I give the Brits more credit than Mr. Saft.
