another British election post yeah i know, ok it will be the last one from me for a long long long long time. as most of you might know the UK finally has a new prime minister, after almost a full week in chaos the old lady with the crown took back the reins of her kingdom (yes it is still very much a kingdom even if we do forget it sometimes), so she took back what was always hers and “ordered” the men to fix their mess. for those of you who understood nothing or not much about this democratic charade here is the dumbed down meli style version of what happened
the May 6th elections caused mayham because there was no clear winner but a clear loser (in numbers) the conservatives and labour (the party that was in charge) got to a tie and the liberal democrats (the new kids on the block) were 3rd.
since everyone was already mad at the labour party no body really wanted them to keep the boss’s seat (to count a few: agreeing to go to war in the middle east with Iraq/Afghanistan, the recent economic crash, the country’s debt -which is by the way a lot bigger than the one which flushed Greece down the toilet-). the conservatives being “conservative” no body really wanted them to take the boss’s seat either because god knows what they would do…..take back all the freedom the labour party gave…..maybe throw out a few foreigners…who knows…….and the NKOTB- AKA- the liberal democrats, they came 3rd so really they can’t legitimately claim the boss’s seat (yeah the numbers do count).
the only solution was for the 3 boys to work together and form what they call a coalition….so basically a new hybrid party was to be created between the 3 of them but hang on……you thought it would be that easy, baaahhhh labour and the conservatives not liking each other too much decided they wanted to be mean to NKOTB and make them pick one of them to partner with since they couldn’t stand the smell of each other in the same room let alone in a political partnership. the liberal democrats happy to still be in the race but not too happy that they only came 3rd have decided to sulk and keep us all waiting for who they were going to pick (I am sure this included many wining and dining and fake compliments)
as our American friends say “it ain’t over till the fat lady sings”………….and the fat lady sang , she got tired of the paper/rock/scissors game between the boys and decided to fire labour (and also Gordon Brown….or Golden Brown as I name him) and she decided to give the conservatives the boss seat but ordered them to play nice and by the rules of the liberal democrats…….and who knows maybe the next elections she will fire the conservatives and give the lib dems a go on the seat (come to think about it it sounds like a playground ride)
God save our gracious Queen!
Long live our noble Queen!
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen
