Conservative and Liberal Democrat policies and ideologies
The Conservative and Liberal Democrat policies and ideologies are so far apart that the British public was surprised that following the May 2010 election that see none of the two major parties achieved overall majority, the Liberal Democrat joined forces with the conservative to form this coalition slipshod government.
It must be true that human beings will sell their souls to acquire power. The Liberal Democrat knew that by themselves they would not be given a mandate by the British voters to form a government on their own and they have always tried for proportional representation which the British public rejected. Much to their surprise they found themselves in a position whereby power sharing was in their grasp, but they did not choose wisely.
The recent parliamentary votes which see the Culture Minister survive in that there will be no investigation over the allegations that he favoured the bid by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. The Liberal Democrat having abstained from the vote is a demonstration of the deep rift within the coalition
