The coalition

By working together, we can be the Conservative party

Seems that the lib-dems sold everything they cared about for a chance at a referendum on AV -- a system that's shite, but shite in a way that might favour lib dem more than the current shite system does.

I voted lib dem, and then i voted AV, in the hopes that voting lib-dem next time would actually get them elected and get us a single transferable vote system; not my preference, but a functionally democratic system.

Now I -- undoubtedly like the lib-dem party -- am feeling a bit narked.

They've sold a lot, and got nothing in return.

The best way forward IMO is for the lib-dems to use the threat of re-allying with Labour to get some things -- any things -- in order to present themselves as a Relevent Party that Does Things at the next election, and hopefully win.

I'm interested in how it'll turn out for them: if it doesn't work they run the risk of appearing to be an irrelevent party that'll sell everything it believes in for a grand total of Nothing.

In other news: what happened to wikileaks? It's made another leak (the Guantanamo files) but it's not been mentioned in the news anywhere near as much as it was at it's peak...
