    please, new labour became popular because the left the ranting socialism behind and some became electable for the middle classes.

    :lolwut:

    Oh yes of course. That is why. Nothing to do with the complex political history of the 90's..

    Looks like we will see a tory majority in 2015. Thanks to the trade unions and ultra leftards, Neil Kinnock has been reborn.

    well done -_-

    There are 60 million people in the UK who aren't going to be the next Prime Minister. Why just focus on Ed Miliband?

    Good hopefully he takes labour so left as to make them unelectable!
    This is exactly what is going to happen, and I'm glad.

    No, we have a coalition of Conservatives and Lib Dems
    Barely.

    We have a Tory government that lets the Lib Dems sit at the table and pretend to eat.

    my main worry is that considering he squeezed in on the backing of the unions that they will hold him to ransom in the years to come. While I have faith in Ed the unions are simply to ideological to know whats best for the country. It could make labour unelectable.

    2 elections, MAXIMUM.
    Sincerely doubt it. We'll have at least two Conservative majority governments before then. We're only on the first coalition one.

    We have a maximum of the Tories being in power at all for 2 maximum.

    Right now, things aren't too bad.
    I think they might well win the next one outright.

    THEN, we'll see then crash and burn.

    Totally unbiased ofc

    I think it could be quite likely that the next government will be a coalition (especially with AV), but the Conservatives won't be in it...

    Major won an election even after the mess of the poll tax. That was how bad labour were before. Yes there were other factors obviously, but if they go too left they will become unpalatable.

    That is why they have cabinet seats and have been able to influence policy such as increasing the tax free allowance?

    Quite a minor concession overall.

    I know obviously they were never going to get a major one, but it just seems like they're stabbing someone in the liver to blow their nose.

    So once again you are trying to wittle down the complex political history of the 1990's into the one or two major events that you have heard of/read about?

    Brilliant!

    The moment I offered my support to Ed was the moment I knew he was going to win. Our country has a new moral leader and today is a glorious day.

    Now to bring down the disgusting ConDem scum coalition.

    I know about more than that, thanks.

    We will see anyway. I must admit I have a vested interest in that I want to see labour collapse.

    I'm pondering putting a bet on the Tories' winning the next election.

    The man's campaign was an absolute embarrassment- not least because he has all the charisma of the archetypal newt-fancier.

    And now we have a Conservative government.

    As such, once it's popularity fades, we'll have a Labour one, then the cycle will begin again.
    THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS :woo:

    Seriously people are your memories really that bad?

    Truth is, all parties who get a taste of power will **** up. They will also do some great things. The people who were in government in the last 20 years or so will be dead 60 years from now. Are you still going to hold your grudges then? As long as we continue to live under a two party system we are going to have to stop dwelling in the past and focus on what the parties are, not what they were. I'm just going to wait and see what Ed Miliband does for his party over the next 5 years, the same goes for Cameron and the country.
