There is the strong possibility that the existing fault lines within the Coalition will begin to open up as resistance grows, with more and more Lib Dems and Lib Dem supporters starting to feel decidedly uneasy. Presently, the polls indicate that support for the Lib Dems has plummeted to around 15 percent since the election, indicating the extent of the sense of betrayal which exists on the part of those who voted Lib Dem as a progressive alternative to the Tories. This sentiment will only increase if, as most reputable economists predict, the UK economy goes into double dip recession when the proposed cuts are introduced starting next year.
I have to be honest, I said long before the election that Nick Clegg would give his still-breathing mother to ethical medical research for a sniff at power.
It’d have to be ethical medical research though. BECAUSE THAT’S GOT SOCIAL MERIT.
Seriously, the betrayal felt by voters who aren’t right-wing here is like a greenish-yellow fog that hangs across a room the moment the government gets mentioned.
We’re all fucked, basically.
