COULD WE GET ANOTHER TORY AND LIB DEM COALITION? – For nearly four years the British public has suffered at the hands of an unholy matrimony; yes that bastard of a union the Tory / Liberal Democrat coalition.
Exactly what is wrong with David Cameron and Nick Clegg? The truth is they both want to be seen as the saviour of British society however their methods and ideologies are completely different and therefore incompatible.
On the one hand you have David Cameron who sincerely believes that Britain should be the saviour of the world; simply look at his views on foreign aid, and that the EU is the ultimate tool for the unification of the European people.
On the other side of the table you have Nick Clegg who feels that Britain could be the shining example to humanity across the globe by creating the ultimate utopia of a multicultural cohesive society; which can only be achieved through mass immigration and equality.
A coalition government is always going to be ineffective because the divide of opposing views is so vast that rarely can a decisive decision ever be made.
It is no secret that David Cameron and Nick Clegg do not get along that well; nor is it any revelation that not much has been achieved as a result of the coalition in 2010.
With 2015 quickly approaching the British public are certainly looking forward to the next General Election but both Mr. Cameron and Mr. Clegg face a problem.
The issue here is the current position of the Labour Party in the polls. Whilst I’m not a fan of either the Tory or Liberal Democrat policies it is frightening to think that Labour might succeed to power once again; especially in the light that Ed Miliband is nothing more than the socialist puppet of Len McClusky.
Another worrying issue is that of the rise of UKIP. The British public is showing more support for Nigel Farage but whether this is to simply scare Mr. Cameron and Mr. Clegg into forming a better workable relationship or a definitive message that neither will get voted in at the next General Election remains unclear.
It is unlikely that UKIP will see the public support it needs in order to form a majority government; quite frankly the public are often skeptical, nay frightened, to vote in a party that is largely untested. Personally I think it’s a bit of a shame for maybe UKIP is exactly what British politics needs – a bloody good shake up and a completely fresh perspective.
It wasn’t but a few weeks ago that whispers around Whitehall were rife that David Cameron was considering an alliance with UKIP, due to their position being above the Liberal Democrats in the polls.
It has been speculated that if the Tory Party wants to have a fighting chance against Labour then forming such a coalition might just well be the ticket to No.10 Downing Street for Mr. Cameron.
According to a book recently published by journalist Matthew d’Ancona he reveals that both David Cameron and Nick Clegg have been engaging is secretive talks with the remit of setting up a second-term coalition.
If, and it’s a big if, such an alliance where to be formed it’s likely that Nick Clegg is going to want a greater slice of the cake this time round – that is far more power and far more say on public policy.
However, the book suggests that Nick Clegg has voiced his reluctance to engage in a second-term coalition and indeed this position is largely supported by its party members. No political party really wants to play second fiddle in policy making; which is exactly what Nick Clegg has put up with since 2010.
Of course Nick Clegg’s views are not restricted to the Liberal Democrats; indeed Tory Party members feel that the existing coalition has been a miserable failure and that the Tory Party must attempt to rally public support in order to form a majority government.
Such claims have been feverously denied by both Mr. Cameron and Mr. Clegg but the reality is that neither is likely to get a majority vote in the next General Election – according to current polls.
Will Labour succeed to power? It is of course possible; currently the polls show 40 per cent public support and whilst Ed Miliband is insistent that he’ll return Britain back to the 1970s socialist era the public might be feeling that this is more acceptable over a country being run by David Cameron and his Old School Network.
There has already been talk of a Tory / UKIP alliance however Nigel Farage has publicly dispelled that notion unless the Tories sack David Cameron. Nigel Farage simply feels that Tory and UKIP policies are just too far removed from one another to make such an alliance work effectively for public benefit.
I could of course sit here and speculate all day long as to which party or which coalition will be brought to power in 2015 however if Britain is to stave off socialist rule then it’s likely that Mr. Cameron will have to form an alliance with either UKIP or the Lib Dems; currently with UKIP exceeding the Lib Dems in the polls it may well turn out that the Tory Party will have no choice but to accept provisions from UKIP if the Tories want to see such an alliance and of course a re-election.
There is simply no denying that UKIP is gaining more and more public support and maybe it is time Britain needs a complete change. The question over whether Nigel Farage and UKIP is a credible alternative remains debatable.
Over the last few months I have been viewing many YouTube videos of Nigel Farage debating issues in the European Parliament – simply go to YouTube and search for Nigel Farage EU and you’ll get to see some very interesting debates.
From viewing these videos a few things are crystal clear; Nigel Farage is not the fruitcake, racist or bigot that some members of the press and oppostion like to make him out to be. He is however a man with a spine, intelligence and refuses to accept the wasteful conduct on the non-elected commissioners.
The result of the next General Election in 2015 will be decided by the electorate but whether the collective can provide a decisive decision yet remains unknown.
The only thing that is certain is that any indecisiveness by the British public this time round will result in yet another coalition being formed which will result in yet another four more years of bickering, back-stabbing, incompetence and indecisive policy making.
