Where Angles Fear to Tread

Exit Stage Right

Filed under: Politics, UK Politics — Tags: — Right Angle @ 4:27 pm

Gordon Brown has resigned as leader of the Labour party, although the resignation is only effective once a new leader is found.

This decision makes it easier for the LibDems to enter into a coalition with Labour as one had the impression that Brown and Clegg didn’t like each other. Especially during Brown’s ‘…and Nick and I agree on this one…’ episodes during the leader’s debate.

However, if it is to be a Lib/Lab pack (see previous Blog entry) then the UK has the potential to have a Prime Minister who wasn’t present at the leader’s election or – strangely – Nick Clegg as leader of a Lib/Lab pack. However, I can’t forsee any circumstance where the parlimentary Labour party would agree to such a step.
