  •  that depends how you define 'better' doesn't it? (0+ / 0-)

    actually the people did exactly what they wanted to do which was to force them to cooperate and compromise.

    It amazes me how completely different the two cultures and political philosophy actually is. Brits were determined NOT to allow the Tories to dismantle their social safety net totally even though they agreed that austerity would be necessary as a remedy for a while.

    By insisting on austerity tempered by Liberal Democrat philosophy they ensured that if they go too far, they're OUT and will get the bum's rush and a swift kick up the rear end, probably within a year.  

    Oh wait, that is what America is threatening too, isn't it!!

    In America the fight is over actually abolishing and weakening the social safety net instead of totally strengthening it.
