Interesting to see the ongoing hysterical propaganda against a possible coalition government, which in many ways would be preferable to the usual, dictatorial powers of majority governments and individuals.
Many successful, developed countries around the world, like Germany, have long histories of coalition governments.
Britain has one right now. The U.S., with the free-vote system in both houses, is a virtual, ever -changing coalition, outside of presidential, or government control.
Not to mention the wonderful coalition between western capitalists and their Chinese communists brethren, co-operating to ruin the economies of their home countries by stripping them of industries with the excuse of “globalization.”
Winston Churchill voluntarily formed a coalition government in 1940, with the Labour Party’s Clement Attlee as his deputy and other Labour politicians, like Ernest Bevin and Arthur Greenwood, occupying important positions.
I seem to remember that they were very successful.
Unlike their dictatorial contemporaries, Hitler, who ended up with a self-inflicted bullet in his head and later Stalin, who rolled around in agony while his henchmen were playing cards in the next room, waiting for him to die.
Coalitions can be the most efficient leaderships, as they demand the co-operation, and input, of the various talents of individuals who, otherwise, would be tied down by the ridiculous demands of the theories of long-dead economic prophets and other faith-based nonsense, destroying the ecology and humanity.
Let us hope for Mr. Harper’s early promotion into a long string of multimillion-dollar directorships, heaped on him by the grateful multinationals for his efforts, like tax cuts, on their behalf.
