David Cameron – The Fall of the Labour Empire
David Cameron could not quite nail the Obama trick of change. As United Kingdom wakes up to a hung parliament for the first time since 1974. In 1974 a Conservative government failed to win a majority in the UK General Elections which lead to a second UK Election in October ’74. A second UK General Election 2010 is impossible to think of under the current circumstances. The recession recovery has just started in the UK and with Greece debt collapse barely a few weeks ago, the Conservative Party will be hoping for a national reconciliation and support from either Nick Clegg Liberal Democrats or other independents.
The latest UK General Election news clearly suggests a hung parliament and no clear winners. That was not the case a month ago where David Cameron and the Conservative Party looked as comfortable winners of the UK General Elections. So before we get into what happened – Lord Ashcroft influence,
Gordon Brown’s likeability factors, Nick Clegg’s debate performance or was it something more? Something that has been overlooked.
The UK General Elections Results are still coming but the indications are that the Conservative Party will hold just over 305 seats in the British Parliament. They would surely fall short of the 326 majority needed to win the UK General Elections. There have been several high profile Labour election candidates that have lost their seat including Jacqui Smith who was the most face of the controversial of expenses claims scandal. Mr. David Cameron appeared for the camera with his wife looking quite satisfied but it hides his disappointment over not securing a majority.
The Liberal Democrats – Nick Clegg disappointment!
After the hoopla of the first UK 2010 General Election debate where Nick Clegg seemed to have confirmed his place as a rising star of British Politics. The results of the party have been very disappointing. People really don’t know too much about him in the national stage and therefore he has not succeeded in making a huge impact in the UK 2010 General Elections Nick Clegg has admitted disappointment and has said that David Cameron must form the new British government.
Gordon Brown – The End of Labour Era
The beginning of the end for Gordon Brown and the Labour Party started when British politics was hit with most humiliating political crisis for a century. The politicians expenses claims hit the Labour Party most and led to resignations of prominent Parliament MPs and cabinet reshuffling. He knew that the odds were against him in the British 2010 General Elections. However, Labour has managed to control the damage which had predicted political candidates losing over 150 seats from previous UK General Elections. The next few hours Gordon Brown will refuse to step down as the British Prime Minister and will try to forge an alliance with others. But his end is near and it is time for him to give up his clout and make way for new Labour leadership like – Ed Ball or David Miliband maybe?
What about David Cameron?
The reason why David Cameron has lost his control over the 2010 British General Elections is that he does not have a concrete answer to serious issues like the pull-out of British troops from Afghanistan and the British Economy recession recovery, It is quite obvious that Cameron’s rhetoric and flamboyant speeches have fallen short on delivery. The British people are not convinced that he is ready to be the Prime Minister.
Does Barack Obama want David Cameron or Gordon Brown. In politics a status quo is better than change. And Barack Obama would prefer Gordon Brown as he knows Gordon Brown.
