    Including the Tories in the UK. Just think of the depression in America if McCain or Romney had been elected.

       She was hoping for support from the moderating Greens, as her coalition partners, the Free Democrats are fading fast.
        But the Greens are saying no, and it looks like the next government could well be a red and green coalition (Social Democrats and Greens.)

         Now, if the Brits could only get rid of the stinkin' Tories, we might see some economic good sense (and prosperity) return to the European continent.
         Which would be good news for us!
