To be clear: I loathe all the British political parties equally. I break out in an allergic rash every time Gordon Brown appears on T.V. I can’t stand Nick Clegg, the tiny twit who would have us embrace Proportional Representation and thus make it far easier for parties such as the neo Nazi BNP to gain power. As for David Cameron…he didn’t come over brilliantly in the live debates and if anything, he’s probably just the best of a terrible bunch.
One thing is for sure though, the potential calamity that awaits us is a coalition government made up of Labour and the Liberal Democrats. Yes, that’s right – the two parties who were categorically rejected by the British electorate could yet make some sort of deal and emerge as our new ‘government’. That is a nightmare scenario and one can only pray it doesn’t come to pass. As I write this, Labour heavyweights are lining up to choose a new leader, while Cameron & Clegg (I mean, come on, they even sound like some sort of comic duo) are desperately trying to thrash out some kind of deal that both can get their own parties to accept.
Only one phrase comes to mind that satisfactorily sums up my present feelings about the state of affairs in Britain – and that’s a loud, passionate and plaintive ‘Oy Vey…..!
