Well, they managed to come to an agreement and form a coalition - that is quite something on its own.
It was much less about policy and more about people TBH. also we all wanted to shake things up and create the first coalition without lab/con in a very long time. If we had pulled it off the political landscape in the house would be totally different to now.

It would... Suddenly it would mean that parties weren't bound by political affiliation and people could go with anyone they wanted and coalitions would be harder to predict.

Not really, it would not likely have changed opinions of which parties we want to work with in the Tories, I doubt it would in Labour, and I expect it wouldn't in the Socialists, so if my a long shot it had worked all it would open up is that monstrosity until such a time that it failed, i.e. not very long.

To be fair, it showed us all a lot about certain members in the House, and that certain people were just pretty damned power hungry, rather than actually doing things based on political views.

At best it will be blue with a tinge of purple.

Given how close the Labour internal vote was i'd be fairly confident that you'd have seen a grand coalition with a proper majority within 2 terms of these minor party coalitions.

It was close? The picture painted was that it was outright rejected by everyone.
And I don't doubt it, but that would have been the shake up that the house needs.

What 'internal vote' are you referring to just out of interest?

We do not need a 'shake up'. A peculiar coalition would be a disaster for everyone.

i disagree. The house is too predictable which looses us people.

What do you think would be a major shake up? A Socialist-UKIP coalition?

It was apparently extremely divisive but yeah, it was close. I kept abreast of the situation the whole time for LP.

About a year ago the coalition collapsed and resulted in a mongrel coalition of the minor parties, what was fairly unknown at the time was that the Tories and Labour had entered negotiations for a grand coalition. The vote failed on their end but it was much closer than either of us probably expected although from what i heard, it was extremely polarising as you'd expect.
