Wrong PVDA, Snorri.

Word, but I thought it looked funny.

Our PvdA is not very communist so it seemed rather silly that Him would like them.

Oh, they wouldn't have. But CD&V decided to campaign the way they did. Making tough promises they could never fulfill. They didn't have the guts to reign in their then-partner NV-A, they were scared to back down themselves and they were basically horrible.

But, like I said, they could kill babies and get elected.

Much like the CDA here. Four failed cabinets yet motherfuckers still keep voting for them.

Gordon Brown Resigns!

Is this a prerequisite for securing the cooperation of the Lib-Dems against the Tories?

This is a super-useful (for an ignorant sod like me), if grossly simplified, Venn Diagram of British political positions:



From this article.

Hell yes. Now they only have to promise electoral reform.

Of course, it goes without saying that I am far from the most sentient of British voters, but I have no idea who the Prime Minister is. I hope that Brown falling on his sword means the Lib's back Labour. There is more natural fit there, surely.

For what it's worth, Reuters has a list of apparent contenders for leadership of Labour.

Andrew Sullivan (an admitted Tory) has suggested that Clegg could be the PM of a "Progressive Coalition" until new elections can be held (presumably after enacting proportional representation). He seemed to think that would be less offensive than a Labour PM who didn't participate in the debates and for whom nobody voted.

David Miliband is a really impressive speaker. I'd vote for him.

edit: because I am that shallow.

Hey, that's okay. That's how we won our election.

That Venn Diagram has taught me that the only things English folk care about is what the hell to do with mouthy teenagers, and whether or not Heathrow ought to have a third runway.

Solution: turn mouthy teenagers into Heathrow's third runway.
