In true British fashion six weeks of electionaring, debate and frenzied media coverage has led to an earth shattering.........draw.
At least we got past the quarter finals.

Cameron/Clegg have found each other pretty fast. Did they do the work in advance?

It's a convenient arrangement to drop unpopular policies from both parties. The liberals got the 10k tax threshold through for low earners but I'm sure they will scrape it back in VAT and National Insurance and cut welfare benefits. Different government, same equilibrium. It will be interesting to see how these parties can work together and at least it bridges some much needed reformation of British politics
