It continues to be a fascinating time for British politics. Nick Clegg and David Cameron did a good job of their first double act press conference. Some of the commentators were parodying it as being like a civil partnership. It may be friendly and civil at the moment but when the going gets tough, I wonder…..?
I was saddened at the statistic that there are so far, 13 people in the new front bench team from Cameron’s old school, Eton. Says a lot really. I don’t like the idea of who you know, and the old boys’ network being seen to be real and alive today. Even worse is the shocking lack of women in cabinet and government posts so far. What about equality and a less confrontational style of politics? When things get hard will we see a return to the adversarial model? I can only hope and pray that things work out. Difficult times ahead.
