Mark Oaten - what can I say?

I don't want to cause a kerfuffle.

Mark Oaten is entitled to write an article in the Times.

I just don't think he is right about 'common cause' between the LibDems and the Tories. Yes, if, a few months ago, you looked at some of the vague mood music that Cameron was emitting, he did seem like a bona fide Observer reader. But now he is showing his true colours (Hit a hoodie etc), so it is obvious that:

a) There is no common cause between the LibDems and the Tories, as we knew all along - the Cameron "sunshine" agenda was a sham masking the real Tory party.

b) The Tory party haven't really worked out what the heck they stand for, so how can you have common cause with a confused entity?


  1. I think there is some ground between the LibDems and some Tories...

    There is a strand in the Tory party, the more liberal/libertarian strand which would work well with the LibDems. Some of the 'one nation' Tories would too.
    However there's also the hang'em and flog'em brigade, the social conservatives and authoritarians.

    Quite honestly, I think that Labour and the Tories make a better coalition partnership...
