PM to keep Labour in Government

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by beemer007, May 7, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Peter 'slimeball' mandlebum has indicated a change of leader is enough for the Labour party to stay in government (according to an unknown Snail reporter) :roll:

    'The Business Secretary indicated a change of leader might be enough to allow the party to secure a coalition that would allow it to stay in government'.

    Unbelievable & as others have stated on a series of threads they will do virtually 'anything' to cling to power, if GB has to go to stay in office will Mr Clegg have a change of heart & work with Labour,

    Going to be a long weekend of discusssions.

    I van only hope that someone will advise little Mr Clegg that if he gets all prima-donnaish and strings everyone along too long the country will blame him for the resultant currency and stock market falls.
  3. Hello,

    wouldn't a Labour/Liberal Democrat government work out quite well for the Conservatives?

  4. Getting rid of Brown doesnt get rid of the real PM... Mandleson... Clegg would be a fool to go anywhere near a Lib Lab coalition government... so its a real possibility!!
  5. Actually, Fondlebum is probably right. Anyone else at the helm instead of brain dead Brown might have seen the electorate return Labour to government. Has any individual politician ever caused such as pile of sh*t as he has? :x
  6. Can't see how it could be good for the country, by time they had finished we wouldn't rate as well as some sub-Saharan sh*t-hole.
  7. Who do you see? Alan Johnson? Harriet Harman(???) or even Peter Mandelson (??????) {he's not constitutionally barred}
  8. If you add up the seats for Labour 258, Lib Dems 57, SNP 6 and Social Democratic & Labour Party 3. The total is 324, which is still not enough to form a Majority in the house.
    It will be a very diverse ruling coalition party if the Conservatives are not part of it.

    It is if you add in Plaid Cymru.
  10. Hello stacker1,

    there is one party which when added to the above would give a Labour majority,Sinn Fein........

  11. Sinn Fein never take their seats.

    My guess, no.
  13. If 5 parties formed one Coalition, with 2 of them nationalistic, I don't think it would last long.

    Nor me. The SNP have said they won't join a Labour coalition anyway so it's a moot point.
  15. Hello stacker1,

    that is true but there is nothing to stop them doing so if they wished,however unlikely that may be!
    Whether they would stand by and let a Unionist/Conservative alliance take over or be tempted to keep them out by allying with Labour and attending the house is an interesting question.
    All the minor parties are likely to be getting a lot of attention from the big players at the moment.
