Election failures and opportunities

Hogarth / Returning the MP

Gordon Brown is King Lear, 'flawed, failed, finished'.

Having lost seats, but retaining enough to make a difference in the next government, Lib-Dem Nick Clegg is negotiating. There is an opportunity here to break the monopoly of the parties and throw away the whips.

Ashley Mote observed that judging by the vote totals in 25 constituencies, Cameron would have won an outright Parliamentary victory if he had kept his promise to hold a referendum on the EU. The question of the EU and the vast sums of money sent to it by the British taxpayer every day will not go away. Not in the upcoming fiscal crisis.

The Wall Street Journal wrote that the United Kingdom's fiscal credibility depends on an emergency budget within weeks and a spending review by the end of the year that will set out the tough spending decisions facing the country.

Michael Portillo extolled David Cameron's courage. The coming crisis will reveal the truth about Cameron and ourselves.

We need a return to tried and true principles of economics, honesty, freedom from over-regulating, high-taxing government, individual responsibility and teamwork.
