    Default A Hung Parliament - they Ought to Be!

    Given the reality of a hung parliament, I can only offer that it is proven by argument that nobody could fault, a conclusion that nobody could believe: that although it appears to us that we refer to plurality of qualified and changing parties, in reality there is only one thing to be referred to, and to conceive of this as qualified, divided, or pluralized in any way is to imply absurdities.

    Did someone actually say this?

    He was, but only in his home constituency. So far as the national level goes, that's twice he hasn't been elected.

    In principle, British Prime Ministers are not elected by a national vote. They are selected as leader of their party by their party. Therefore, leaders of paries can come and go without the requirement for a general election.

    Under the current constitution, you are quite right, democracy is working albeit in a confusing manner to those that are unfamiliar with the constitution.

    Unfortunately, we who live in democracies appear to be governed by media-driven opinions.

    The administrative area, region and ceremonial county of Greater London, including the City of London, is divided into 74 parliamentary constituencies which are all borough constituencies.

    Of these, only 11% have changed party in the general election.

    Probably not.

    It is an adaptation I made from Greek, Eleatic, philosphical argument, in order to demonstrate the confsuion in debate regarding the possibility of a coalition government as a result of the British general elelection.

    The original reads:

    Parmenides and Melissus of the Eleatic school

    "They proved by an argument that nobody could fault, a conclusion that nobody could believe: that although it appears to us that we refer to plurality of qualified and changing objects, in reality there is only one thing to be referred to, and to conceive of this as qualified, divided, or pluralized in any way is to imply absurdities."

    Of course, this is essential bedtime reading.

    This same hang up occurred in the U.S. awhile back, it took forever to decide who won what,, That election,and this one were conducted during what is called in Astronomical circles, Mercury Retrograde. It is said that this condition befuddles agreements,details and communications of all sorts. The present retrograde will end on the 11th of this Month, so all of you folks from The U.K. will have your answers in due course. You will also find that through a typographical error, Haggis will be declared the National dish of all of Great Britain. Billy Connolly will deliver the news to Her Majesty.

    Add in Brown stepping down with the possibility there could still been a Labour PM and the Mercury Retrograde starts to make sense

    Brown hasn't resigned, he's just said he's willing to resign eventually if the Lib Dems are willing to keep him and his party in power just that little bit longer...

    I never said resigned
    He's stepping down as from leader of the Labor Party, still be a while before a new leader is picked but that still means Labor could be in power but it wouldn't be Brown as PM unless he changes his mind.

    Well he's resigned now.

    Well, Brown has stood down now, and we have a new PM and government.

    Let's see where Mercury and the other Gods of Downing Street lead us.

    I thought I was fairly literate, but this long, tedious sentence is almost totally incomprehensible. Are you in politics?
