@iaindale AND @charlottegore AND @devilskitchen get it wrong

Iain is, of course, masturbating himself into a furious frenzy over the idea that the forehead of doom and his tribe of blue-tie-wearing liblabcon artists might get their hands on the levers of power anyway, by offering some minor concessions to the yellow-tie-wearing liblabcon artists.

But at least Iain's "wrongness" is just tribalism. I'm a lot more worried about what has happened to two of my favourite bloggers.

Charlotte and DK, on the other hand, are frigging themselves into a coma because they think that by combining liberal social policies with conservative economic policies, we will get an ideal government. And well, you might, but the key issue is that the Lib Dems aren't liberal and the Conservatives aren't conservative.

The Lib Dems are a social democratic party, which is why so many liberals are disaffected and why, I'd like to remind Charlotte, she resigned from the party. The chances of them actually being more liberal (in the classical liberal sense) than any of the other parties is wishful thinking. The Tories are not small government, "classical liberal" on the economics front, either.

And as for DK, I can only assume he was pissed out of his bracket if he forgot all this.

What's really going to happen if we get a Con-Lib coalition is that the natural social democratic agreement between the parties will lead to loads more shit policies that are entirely indistinguishable from Labour's cuntwittery for the last 13 years.

I remain entirely unrepentant, I agree entirely with Hitchens: the electorate (apart from the client state) despise Labour, people rejected the Limp Dumbs and they were entirely unenthused about Cameronism.

We've fucking had 13 years of Cameronism with red ties and it's visibly fucked the country. Dave, why the cunting fuck would we vote for five more years of Cameronism with blue ties this time? Why is this so fucking hard to grasp? You pissed huge sums of money into this election, you tried every trick in the book, you had a fucking open goal with Cyclops going out of his way to fuck the election up and you still couldn't fucking win a simple majority!!!

The only reason you did as well as you did was because people are so fucking sick of the cunts with the red ties and the "progressive consensus". If you'd offered something different to the progressive consensus, you'd have walked this. But because you're entirely indistinguishable from a Labour apparatchik, you screwed the pooch.

I'm off to start my day by hitting myself in the face with a ball-peen hammer. It's got to make things better.

Obo,

Seriously, big man—what the fuck? Let me quote me back at you... [Emphasis (that maybe I should have included but felt that I didn't have to because maybe, maybe, most people would get what I was driving at) included.]

"Maybe the outcome will be of benefit to the libertarians of this country. Perhaps we would get the LibDems' £10,000 Personal Tax Allowance combined with the Tories' educational reforms. Or maybe we'd just get a mish-mash of half-way-house policies combined out of ideas that were, in any case, merely tinkering at the edges of the problems facing us today."

Fucking hellski.

Spot on, expect more of the same until the Clegg, Cameron or Whoevers in charge of Labour think they can get a majority or afford an election and watch the whole ghastly business start over again. Until there's a real difference to vote over.

DK, I'm taking tips from Boatang and Demetriou about how to drum up business ... ;o)

That's going too far. I think there's a potential there for quite a radical, reforming Government and there's a chance it'll be slightly more libertarian than either of the two on their own, and much more likely to be better than Lib/Lab.

I haven't forgotten who these two parties really are.

Tories would have had a comfortable majority if not for Labour holding about 59 seats they were expected to lose. There is strong suspicion that this was due to voting fraud. See recent articles at http://aangirfan.blogspot.com/
Observers commented that our election was less well run than Kenya's!

I left the Liberals when the SDP muscled in and made the party a branch of the Politically Correct Thought Police so I share some of your worries Obnixio.

Do any sane people really believe the most serious issue facing this country is gay rights?

According to Mr S, if the ball-pein hammer doesn't help, the next thing to try is a little amateur trepanning...

Ah, Glo, thanks for the advice. Does Mr S have any particular tool recommendations?

Just a cordless drill, apparently. Mind you, it seems there's a fine line between enlightened mental relief and liquefied cranial matter, either of which depends entirely on the steadiness of the drill-holding hand.

Worryingly, there's often a cordless drill lying around in our kitchen....

Perhaps he's trying to tell you something? ;o)

I note that this thread is labelled under 'forehead of doom'.

As someone with a possibly-doomed forehead, I laughed (while I still can)...
