A camel is a horse designed by committee

...and that is the main danger of this coalition. That the pollitical ideas of a party become diluted and carved up.

But still - we have progress. Our unelected Scottish Prime Minister gave probably the most effective speech of his appalling tenure and finally did the honourable thing, paving the way for Mr Cameron to make his path to the Palace.

My only other comment on this is to highlight the calibre of the protesters outside Downing Street. I can understand that militant trade unionists will always be moaning and groaning and it comes as no great surprise that left-wing demonstrators called Apple and Leaf are to be found on unicycles blowing on hunting horns in and around Parliament Square. However, I found it disgraceful that a small number of Labour Party activists remained standing outside after Brown's departure, waiting to heckle Cameron as his car pulled up. To me, it shows the true nature of socialists and the total lack of respect they actually have for democracy and protocol - and I am sure they would have been crying into their muesli had the boot been on the other foot.

Still, despite the dithering of the Lib Dems, perhaps those people will finally slink off back beneath their stones and do us all a favour.
