    Another step on what’s looking like the inevitable road:
    “David Cameron and Nick Clegg have ordered the creation of a beefed-up policy unit at 10 Downing Street to tighten their grip on government and act as an engine for ideas for the coalition in the second half of this parliament.

    Their desire jointly to develop new policies for 2012-15 will encourage those such as Sir John Major, the former Tory premier, who want the coalition to last beyond the next election.”

    We should not be making deals with either the Tories or Labour whilst their present leadership's are in control. A plague on both their houses!
