The latest is tinfoil mad hatter, Michael Meacher, who had this to say about the Con/Dem coalition on the 8th.
The difference between the two parties on fundamentals like the EU, immigration, Trident and early spending cuts are large, probably too large. [...] The chances of any deal now with the Tories that passes this very high democratic bar must be exceedingly small.In hindsight, such a prediction must be rather embarrassing even for the doyen of doolally himself.
Which could explain Sunday's bitter grizzling at those who are in the jobs which Labour MPs so jealously covet.
The grand talk of a reformist coalition is already looking bare even before it’s started. With the neocon Trident-hardliner Liam Fox as Defence Minister, the anti-EU fanatical and Ashcroft-corrupted William Hague as Foreign Secretary, the inexperienced weakest link George Osborne as Chancellor, the anti-State ultra-marketeer Michael Gove as Education Secretary, and the anti-abortion and anti-gay rights Teresa May as Equalities Minister, it’s a throwback to the Thatcher era, in reactionary instincts if not in the same form.Someone give the guy a hankie, for God's sake!
