Ukip The Party To Solve Housing Problems!?

Recommended Posts

When it comes to a problem as intractable as housing, it is not too much of a caricature to say that Westminster orthodoxy is: "Isn't it all difficult? We will do our best. We'll do better than the other lot (and better than last time we had a crack at it)."

It's not just housing. On most issues of any significance, once in government, there's no difference between the Lib the Lab or the Con.

In that connection it's fair to say that they're all in it together.

And with Farage saying a confidence and supply arrangement is possible, i suspect we'll see UKIP start to compromise on their promises too.

Nige should have learned from the LibDems. If you are a minority in govt, the majority will trample all over you

Of course that's possible but one doesn't know that yet about UKIP - and it's not inevitable.

Even though it's now well established procedure for the Libdems.

For sure Mr Farage will have learnt from the Conservative/Libdem coalition but he could easily make different decisions as a result. That's if UKIP is given the opportunity.

Learning from the LibDems is why UKIP and the Greens (and i think maybe even the SNP? can't remember) have ruled out coalitions but 'confidence and supply'.

It'll mean a very fragile government, with Bennett/Farage/Sturgeon holding a gun to the prime ministers head throughout - and probably a vote of no confidence before too long when the bluff is called.
