FrontPageMag in the US has a clearer view of the Lib-Dem proposed electoral reform than many have dared express in our country .
The changes that the parties have agreed to will transform the British government from a decisive decision-making machine into a morass of compromise, half-measures and deadlock. Gridlock will be exported across the ocean to the United Kingdom.
The Liberal/Social Democrats are pushing this change in the hopes that there may never again be a parliamentary majority for the Conservatives or Labor and that they will always hold the balance of power in a hung parliament.
Why does no one talk like that here ? Is it the effect of being nice to coalition partners ? Or is it that the Loyal (ha , ha) Opposition favour a similar hare-brained scheme ?
