No. Tony's views were more progressive than Tony's before he got his hands on the keys to Number 10. Remember the feeling in May 1997? We had no idea what a horrid little Tory Tony was back then....mean he's more likely to step down and pass the torch to Brown (whose views have always been much more progressive than tony's).
It also makes back-bench rebellion a more attractive proposition. Your next Government will be a Tory Government.Vastly reduced Lab majority means presidential-style Bill-forcing is trickier.
Pay attention Damo - Howard has already resigned.3 - tory party dealt another blow, howard very likely to be ousted,
Clutching at straws now mate... UKIP are [and always will be] as relevant to the UK electorate as The People's Democratic Party Of Latvia.4 - UKIP vastly down on how they would have scored had the general election been May 2004
Everything is always changing. That is the nature of a Universe in flux.not saying this is going to drastically change the world but the demographic of politics in britain is changed, or firmly on the way to changing...not bad for 4 days after an election

1. It seems to be sunnier.
2. I've got a random date with a bisexual chinese Goth girl this week who'll lapdance for Orange Juice.
Neither of which are necessarily to do with my voting, but just in case I think I'll vote Lib Dem's again next time ...
Do you remember the tirade they did against single mothers? Some of the 'Tory boys' in my school took it to heart and made my life utter hell, but it was OK, because it was the official policy of the government.Continuum said:J I think you're making the fundamental mistake of taking any of this seriously
If there was a tory govt would we be able to tell the difference? Somehow I doubt it...
