The Nelson Affliction

Fraser Nelson, writing in the News of the World, comments on the situation of the Cameron/Clegg 'Love-In' following any referendum on adoption of AV for the voting system.

He ends his article with the words: 'Or this coalition may mutate into a full-blown merger - and the Liberal Conservatives may be born'.

It would seem that Fraser is suffering from the same problem as that of a famous forebear of his surname, namely defective eyesight. Surely with Cameron as leader of the Conservative Party, Liberal Conservatives already exist? 


Update: Fraser Nelson expands on the NoW article here on the Coffee House.

The question is rather whether 'The Conservatives' exist?

Ta, TBF.

Chuckles - Remind me, what was it 'The Conservatives' believed in?

The "Conservatives" no longer exist, and I am not convinced Cameron is liberal except of course, in matters gay. Clegg has never been liberal, again except in certain matters of a gay sort. What did we do to deserve this?

Anon, We did not do anything - its the dummies who voted for them!

Many were skeptic when the Coalition was formed months ago. Now that there is a move to make it somehow permanent, it is still not accepted by many. I am also wondering what good it will do to this country. Hopefully, it will really do something good.
