I know that I risk ridicule and crowing by even posting this, being in a small minority on here....
have shed a tear watching it - what diginity and grace in his speech(whatever you all think).The cruel , personal press the man has to endure, a failed attempt to label him a bully, comments about his eyesight and looks..shame on the Tory controlled press.
Truth be told , beyond the emotion, I am glad it is a Con/Lib coalition because it will be shaky and difficult.Labour needed a new leader too.We will return.
Tipsy, Snowdrops et al - I was 9 when Mrs T came to power, I grew up in a very deprived and poor area. It seemed to me and those around me, that the Conservatives cared only for the rich and showed utter contempt for the poor and the working classes and the public services they depended on.I saw my own family and community suffer terribly under them, whilst their leader famously pronounced - "there is no such thing as society."
I really, really, really, really hope that they have some compassion and sense of social justice now.Thank God they didn't get a majority and I pray the libdems will show them how to care for the overall public good, not just their rich buddies and old school friends.
Let us see.......
