I am looking forward to....
the Tory 'lite' Party scrapping the third Runway plans at Heathrow which they promised they would do once they got into power.
Nick and Dave & a mixture of Lib Dems and Tories in the same cabinet !! I have never heard of anything so ridiculous in my life.
I look forward to the comedy that ensures.
I bet all those voters who voted for certain policies in which now been scrapped over this Coalition are really happy about that !!!
Ho Ho Ho - it's the Dave and Nick show.

I suppose it's time to open a book on the date of the next general election. My money is on August after the Lib Dems decide they don'y like George Osbournes Emergancy Budget in June.
The result of the next general election will also be an hung parliament with Tories losing no more than 10 seats to Labour and the LD's losing another 2 seats while gaining another 5% of the national vote.
Much comedy will surely follow...

I certainly hope so, + anything to keep Big Brother off the air !!

Oooooo, could be a tad early I think - still I may be wrong. I wonder how long it will be before Dave tries to give some tax breaks to his rich friends.....
Which the likes of US will have to pay for via an increase in VAT !!

C'mon you never know it might work.
Bit of optimism would be nice change around here.

The Tory 'lite' Party will never work - this set up is an insult on the British voter. You vote for a parties policies only to find out that they are willing to forget those just to get a foot into number 10. The Lib Dems are FOR Europe, the Tories are against - they are now in the same cabinet plus there are many more examples - the whole thing is a complete and utter shambles.

What will the Daily Mail do now ? They loved Dave and hated Nick but now they have to report on the Dave & Nick show !!

Hmmm, so now we have one and a half Prime Ministers? Dave and the Clegglet.....

The paradox will cause The Mail to cease to exist.

Worse than that, we now have 2 ex public school boys running the country - [ one of them was an adviser to Norman Lamont on Black Wednesday which many voters have forgotten about ]

Yes, that's the thing that really worries me - how many of Dave's Eton chums are now going to get snout in trough jobs in the government....

HA HA HA just heard that Paddy Pantsdown in back in [ to be confirmed ] to replace Liam Fox as Defense Secretary. You couldn't make this up could you - it's just pure comedy gold.
May have to re-tract that as my sources say it's not true...... which is a shame.

Labour aren't going to be a hurry for another General Election.
The Labour leadership contest is long winded, and takes a good couple of months. Even after that they'd want to spend time rebuilding the party (as Blair, Mandy and Brown did from '94 onwards).
They'll be quite happy to let the Con-Lib Government flap around for 18/24 months whilst they rebuild and come back stronger.

Will the last person out of the country please log off and switch off the monitors.

Paddy Ashdown - an odious person. That's it, I'm declaring my house an independent state and refusing to recycle my rubbish anymore.
