How clever that Cameron is managing to implement some unpopular policies and transfer the blame onto his minority partner, Nick Clegg. Those who voted for Nick Clegg also seem to think that he now has the power to implement anything he wants to, i.e. all the things he promised before the election. but of course he can’t. In order to share power with the Conservatives he’s had to face the reality that he can only get one policy in three through – still better than none at all, which was his other choice.
But amazingly people don’t seem to be able to grasp this, so he’s vilified over things like the student tuition fee increase. He can’t vote against it because he’s IN A COALITION! He has to sacrifice some things in order to get others.
Of course, the big decision was the moment when he decided to get into the coalition in the first place, and we all know that the four years of semi power is going to cost him later. But hey, worth a try!
