Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

British Parliament Headed To Chaos

Looks like Conservatives will have a plurality of seats, but they could struggle to put together a majority in the House of Commons.  Labour, Lib Dems and the Scottish National Party don't look like THEY can form a majority coalition either.

It's striking that both Britain and Israel are having trouble with the fragmentation of their parliamentary systems at the same time we are struggling with gridlock and ideological partisanship in our system.
