UK election question for our British members

To the UK members at IDNF:

telegraph article paste below as ref.

Is this calculation and 2 to 1 LibDem to Tory falloff sentiment correct at the moment ?

Wouldn't a no confidence vote happen quite quickly if Brown tried to give a limited number of LibDem's , ministry portfolios ???

Or is the whole point of the conjecture in this article, that the UK will have to go with a 2nd snap election.


Have any of the LibDem's ever been shadow ministers ?
And if so, were these roles served as Tories and not as LibDems ?

M

thanks...

Steve

The Labour calculation is simple. For more than 350 opinion polls now, they have been behind the Conservatives. They cannot win an overall majority, they believe. If voters desert the Liberal Democrats, Labour's polls report, two votes go to the Tories for every one that defects to Labour. And there is much less competition for individual seats between Labour and the Liberals than between Tories and Liberals.

So, study the British constitution. Remind yourself that the Prime Minister stays Prime Minister for as long as he can command a vote of confidence in the House of Commons, even if his party holds fewer seats than its main rival. Then concoct the offer that will allow this – not necessarily a coalition with Mr Clegg, more likely a promise that electoral reform will be guaranteed and no new election called until that reform is law. In short, Labour's view now is that its own survival depends on more people voting Liberal Democrat.

Re: UK election question for our British members

Great to see all our UK "members" being so interested in their elections ... I can't talk, I was such a slacker I failed to vote in any UK election I was eligilble for. But shite, UK politicians are all such sleazeballs ..................... unless you compare them with a Taksin-like sleazeball and then you know you are lucky you are brought up in the UK political system, not the Thai one.

The only Thais I know that vote are the ones paid to do so ................
