It’s all kicking off in the coalition

April 24, 2011

Is the love affair over? Angry statements have been made by the Lib Dems, including Nick Clegg, about the “lies” the Conservatives are spreading about the alternative vote system. As part of the Lib Dems agreeing to form a Government with the tories, they demanded there put a vote put to the electorate about AV. Now, where once there was sweetness and light, lies anger and hatred. The NO campaign have been busy. The YES campaign are fighting back.

Energy Secretary, Chris Hune has not ruled out resigning his position over this. He accuses the tories of “untruths” and is considering taking legal action. “It is frankly worrying if you have colleagues who you’ve respected, and who you’ve worked well with, who are making claims which have no foundation in truth whatsoever.” Foreign Secretary William Hague said that he does not believe that the rows will disunite the coalition. “We all have strong feelings but at the end of it the coalition will work very well together as it is at the moment.”

Sitting in on those cabinet meetings just got a whole lot more interesting. How I’d love to be a fly on the wall in that room.
