    Default Great Britain... what a mess!

    The complete fuck up that is UK politics right now!

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036677/...30454#37030454

    We have now no Prime Minister as Gordon Brown has resigned! No leading party! And we're awaiting to find what will happen. As long as Cameron cant govern completely... I'll be happy. Utter bastard he is!

    Fill us in, what is wrong with Cameron and I thought Gordon Brown was hated??
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    In a nutshell...

    Last week we had a general election. (same as your presidentials) To run the country you have to have win 326 of the 650 constituanties where candidates run for office. If you get 326, then you have a majority government and you simply take over.

    The race this time was very mixed. A lot of the country has had enough of the Labour Party and Gordon Brown so voted for the other major party, Conservatives (nickname Tories) and their leader David Cameron, or our third party, Liberal Democrats with their leader Nick Clegg. Generally it's just a race between the Tories and Labour. Labour being the equivelant of the Democrats, Conserrvatives, the Republicans.

    The Tories came out with the most seats, 306. Not enough for a majority rule and we now have what is called a hung parliament. Two things can happen now. Two parties can get together and govern as an alliance or we have an other election and the previous government can remain till then.

    David (I'm 7th cousin to the queen and dont give a shit about you commoners) Cameron is desperate for an alliance. Labour would like one too. We're in a position where the third party can choose which they want to work with cos Tories/Labour just isnt an option as the policies are so different.

    However.... a lot of the people who voted LibDem did so to keep the Tories out so they dont want an alliance with them now and would feel betrayed. Gordon Brown has stood down as PM because Nick Clegg doesnt want to work with him personally and that would leave the Labour party in a better position to negociate with the Lib Dems. The problem that has caused however is that we now have no Prime Minister till they choose another Labour leader..

    Confused...?? Yeah.. us too!!

    I just cant stand David Cameron. He stands for eveything I despise about the UK. A rich elite society.. Eton and Oxford educated.. mummy and daddy loaded and he hasnt a clue about regular people and their daily lives. Nor does he care! He is, in fact, a tosser! He went straight from Oxford to the Conservative headquarters after a "nudge nudge" phone call from the palace and has never actually had a job.. ever!!

    I have to post my favourite pre election youtube ditty

    Cameron won the general election...but the conservative party didnt win enough seats in the houses of parliment (you need 326 seats to win an overal majority, the fact they got 3 million more votes counts for nothing apparently!) Brown has quit because he is a fat criminal c**tbag.
    Because labour were already in power they hasve the chance to form an alliance with the other parties (even though they lost the election), the only hope that Cameron and the Conservative party have is to also form an alliance, but so far the other main party (the Liberal Democrats) aren't playing ball, so it seems we may end up having another 4 years of the thieving labour party...even though they lost the election fair and square!

    this is proof that British democracy is so bent it's broken!



    under Labour theres no such thing as 'Great' Britain...its just a laughing stock

    The electoral college doesn't seem so bad after all

    I can't believe 3 million votes are just going to get thrown away like that. What a mess. I do find the cyclical events of politics to be quite fascinating. Over here in the USA, we have a government that seems to be bent on creating a state more in tune to Europe. They believed that the election of Obama was a public cry for change however it appears it was more hatred for Bush than anything else. In 6 months, our congress will appear much different over the hatred towards the ruling party.

    However in the UK, it seems that you want to become more conservative and are tired of the party that was so popular just a short time ago. However I believe if allowed, that too will soon change.

    Good luck with the mess!!!

    And for Graeme's views on this....

    I'm voting for Cameron. Yeah, I know, "Avatar" was crap, but I still think he has another "Terminator" left in him. I say give the guy a chance.

    The LibDems are looking for electoral reform. Would be a totally different senario if we had that and would shake up the 2 major parties to both get their houses in order.

    alot more than 3 million votes get thrown away every election in the states. The first past the post system is not a bad one. Proportional Rep is not a great answer unless you want the balance of power to be held by people like the communist party and fringe players like that.

    I'm not familiar with either Cameron of Clegg, but, now that he's finally out, Brown can spend some more time sucking Muammar Gaddafi's cock.

    Here's hoping he chokes to death on it.

    You know, I genuinely thought about organising my ex-pat voting thing, but then I had a great tuna fish roll, with peppers and mayo and lettuce ...

    .. and I forgot all about it.

    However, fear not Angie... You will be happy to hear that here in Nord-Rhein-Westfalen, the biggest, richest and most densely populated (I think about 19 mill) area of the fatherland, Angie "the" Merkel's government party has just been pole-axed in the local by-elections (to use the Brit slang). The coalition that was here is now in tatters. Unfortunately, lots of Nationalists and far right (read anti Turkish) parties picked up the slack.

    Anger due to Germany shelling over 20 billion to Greece and another god knows what eleventy trip-pilion to the EU protection package.

    The whole she-bang is coming down hard my friends.

    Duck and cover.
