The Death Of Ideology

Ashcroft and Clegg help Cameron hobble to power. The electorate get a LibCon Coalition which is jeered into Downing Street on a sad day for democracy. You cannot fix the economy when you are unable to finish the sentence ' I came into politics because...'
 The Premiership now officially has a price tag on it and the post has been demeaned as a consequence. The coalition with the LibDems can only be described as the political equivalent of blacking up and the moral backlash will cost the Tory party in the medium and long run.

Put it on Dave's Tab and give us a little dance....

The unseemly sight of William Hague being sent out by David Cameron to literally beg Nick Clegg for power has left the Tories exposed both politically and metaphorically. Short of asking Samantha to call their newborn  Paddy Ashdown  Cameron (a compromise that would keep the Irish DUP, Michael Ashcroft and the LibDems happy)
It is difficult to see what else Cameron won't give in to. Clegg's ability to have completely run rings around David Cameron and squeeze every last concession  that for the most part run contrary to all Tory values must leave serious doubts in the mind of the electorate of Cameron's ability to negotiate deals on behalf of the country as a PM.

How to lose friends and alienate your grass roots.... Clegg-Cameron alliance would sprinkle yellow stardust on Tory Blues

Despite all the spin the results are nothing short of disastrous for the Tory leader David Cameron. Having been bamboozled by a hipper clone in the first leader's debate, we now see the sorry spectacle of a man trying to be PM at any cost. While Nick Clegg may resemble Cameron on the outside there could not be a more stark difference when it comes to policy. Coupled with the fact that the next year is likely to be a strikefest there could not be a worse time to cobble together an alliance with which the majority of Tories would be so ideologically opposed. Thanks to the third debate we know how widely apart the two sides are on the key issues: the economy, immigration, PR and most testing for the Tory faithful Europe.
If this is what the Tories had wanted they would have just elected Ken Clarke who would have walked this election. The conservatives have themselves to blame for having opted for PR over substantive issues they may now be lumbered with PR (that's proportional representation) for good. The Tories will learn a lesson, the Labour grass roots could have told them long ago. If you dilute your values in search for the hallowed centre ground in the naive assumption that it will lead you to power you risk losing your party's soul for good. What is also worth noting is that in this merry dance to form a government the younger leaders seem to be more concerned about how their own brands will be tarnished by any association rather then the real national interest.
