David Laws

What happens next?

New politics, some get it, some don't

So the Nucoalition has come of age, it's lost, with the resignation of David Laws, its first member; so what happens next? Well first we must remind ourselves this is all a bit new. The oft overlooked voter weighed up the options on polling day and went radical by giving mixed signals, hence the coalition. This we may assume came as a bit of a shock to some; indeed the LibDems were still kidding themselves till very late in the day that they could form an alliance with Nulabour, before realising the voters wouldn't like this and going with the Tories. It would seem Laws was privately kidding himself too. If he's so clever, as we are frequently told he is, then why didn't he prepare himself and his private affairs for government?
