Thanks Nick!

Thanks Nick Clegg for showing us that politicians who will sell out their party, their principles, and the people who voted for them aren't confined to the USA. It's good to know that Britain is as full of power hungry douchebag politicians who will do anything to attain and stay in power as the USA is. By joining the Tories in forming the new British government you sold out all your party's principles and core beliefs.

You taken douchebaggery to new heretofore unseen heights Nicky old chap. By getting in bed with the party who's political philosophy is diametrically opposed to yours, you've managed to screw the British voters over more than Blair and Brown ever did. I'm guessing your political heroes are Joe Lieberman and all the Democrats who voted against health care reform. They stabbed their constituents in the back just as surely as you did.

If there is such a thing as political hell then you've just earned a few million anal rapes courtesy of Augusto Pinochet, Maggie Thatcher, and George Wallace when you get there. I hope that seat in the House of Lords you're going to get was worth it you punk ass class traitor.

I don't know that this coalition government in the UK is such a bad thing. The main problem is with the electoral process, which is the same as ours where a party can win the popular vote and still not get enough "seats" to win the government. We in Canada toyed briefly with a coalition government after the last election, too. It seems a lot more democratic than giving power to the party who may have only had a handful more votes -- or even less of the popular votes. Liberals and Conservatives in our governments are a lot closer in ideology than your Republicans and Democrats. In foreign policy and international matters they'r neck in neck. They will have some squabbles over domestic matters, but that's still better than having some tool like Stephen Harper running roughshod over social programs et al when the majority of people didn't even vote for him.

Did you watch John Stewart? He had a similar photo up and said they looked like before and after photos of a weight loss product.

I'm glad someone's got a finger on the pulse of somewhere else than stupid here.

I wonder if Labour made a political calculation that the Tories would fuck up the recovery--because the UK is still in dire straits--and that this move will bring down both the Tories and the Lib Dems. Of course, that means that Labour was unwilling to negotiate a real deal with the lib dems in return for future political profit. Christ, they are a lot like the democrats here, no? Except craftier. And they wonder why we hate politicians.
