2010 is a year which will stand out in the history of British politics. For the first time since 1945, two parties have come together to form a coalition government, so it's an innovation for most people. However, whether this coalition will be a success or failure remains to be seen, and many will be watching developments with interest. It has already caused controversy and no doubt will continue to do so for some time to come.
The Election Thread has died, but given the importance of the Election's aftermath, MW members are invited to submit news articles or to comment or debate on how they think this government is performing, certainly over its first few weeks.
Serious, cynical or humorous - all contributions are welcome.
I voted Lib Dem, partly because my constituency was a two-horse race with Labour (who took the seat by a margin of only 316 votes) and partly because I hoped that, if there was a hung parliament, they would form an alliance with the Tories. Not only does Britain badly need some new blood at Westminster after thirteen years of ineffectual Labour government, but I feel it's right that the Lib Dems (last in power nearly a century ago as the Liberals) should have a chance to show the country what they can do, albeit in a coalition with another party.
