    Ah okay, fair enough. Meh, I'm just fed up that it's just all that image of men in suits with the wives on their arms. God, I sound like Harriet Harman.

    Cameron vaguely alluded to that in his speech. Milliband also mentioned it earlier. Inclined to agree, anyhow.

    What does that mean? I am being serious about a spouse and service.

    Clegg confirmed as Deputy PM. We haven't had one since Prescott as far as I know. I know Harriet Harmann is deputy leader of Labour (or rather, was) but I don't think she was ever made Deputy PM.

    Labour Party's join page is crashing apparently.

    Wonder if the Mirror are still glad they pushed for people to vote for Lib Dem in so many places.

    Bit dissapointing for Clegg, surprised he took it, nothing more than ceremonial in recent years.

    Though judging by corrins later posts (i typed this one after the clegg post), taking the piss I bet.

    Still though, Clegg would be wrong to settle for anything less than Foreign secretary.... would be pushing it to get a Lib Chancellor......

    Haha, oh dear, reading Sky News (Corrins usual source), seems he was being serious.

    First **** ups already then!!!

    10k threshold a bad idea, and thats coming from someone who'd not only be financially better off, but would have a FAR easier job because of it......

    See old Gordon has got the classic everyone being nice to him now he has gone. Never been any doubt for me that he is a fundamentally good if flawed man.

    Obviously I don't want Cameron to be prime minister, but he is so I hope he does a reasonable job, no matter what it is going to be fascinating to see how this coalition plays out.

    People said Mandelson was the unoficial one, they can of course hold another Cabinet job as well like Prescott did, be interesting to see if that happens.

    I think Clegg's got a really good deal here on policies. I can't imagine many of them will be overly bothered about the immigration cap or commitment to not joining the euro.

    Looks like there'll still be massive cuts though. They'll be in trouble if that goes tits-up.

    I'm actually sorry to see him go....

    Unlike Blair. I was happy to see him go, after the lies he told us about the Iraq War, and the way he was Bush's puppy dog.

    TO me, Blair was a PR-image, plastic kind of guy, and I get the same feeling about Cameron and Clegg. To me, Gordon was more substance over style. The other three strike me as the other way around....
