A fascinating and quite helpful Venn Diagram (remember those from school days?) showing the differences and areas of commonality between the policies of the Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dem. (Image from The Telegraph, click on the image above for the full version)
It looked over the weekend as if we were heading for a green government, but perhaps with the news that Brown will step down after helping to create a Progressive Coalition maybe it is moving towards becoming orange. [There's more...]
I don't know about you, but I've been getting a little frustrated with those politicians who are seeking a quick resolution at all costs ("because the markets demand it!"). I'd much rather that the discussions taking place now between the Tories and Lib-Dems and Labour and Lib-Dems explore every avenue in order that the resultant coalition/agreement/minority government has the best chance of implementing policies that will benefit as many people as possible.
For that reason I've been pretty impressed with all three party leaders in the way they have been handling themselves over the last few days. It feels a little more like grown-up politics. Who would have thought it?
