"It's just that they don't want to be the ones to implement the tax hikes or spending cuts that will be necessary to fund it. If they can talk it through with the other parties — the thinking goes — then this crucial policy area can be detoxified, the blame spread more or less evenly."Which begs the question just what other 'policy areas' are 'talked through' so as to detoxify the subject? EU membership? Denial of a cost/benefit analysis on said membership? Denial of a referendum on said membership? Denial of any public discussion on said membership? Denial of any suggestion that we no longer are a 'sovereign' nation?
The picture that the Coffee House uses:
suggests a 'bonhomie' that is far from the impression that PMQs would suggest, so therefore we can assume that PMQs is but a 'show' put on for the general gratification of the public - likewise politics in general. (So how many of us didn't know that?) That the impression given of Clegg being the central figure in the 'stitch-up' being practised on the British electorate is not that far from the truth. Although if every picture should tell a story, then Cameron should be standing between Clegg and MilibandE purely to underline the words of the 'marching instruction': Left, Left, Left ..... Left'. Had the picture been posed as I suggest - and we all know that a picture cannot lie - it would have confirmed that the 'Right' had been omitted.
