Dear David and Nick,

These past few weeks have been without precedent in UK politics, and the last seven days have looked very positive in terms of your coalition, language and approach.

I think that most people in the country, regardless of how they voted, are ready to give you a chance to prove you have indeed put the nation’s needs before party politics.

It is now time to move beyond what you say, to what you do, and in that, we are looking for strong, clear, role-model leadership at every stage. Take whatever tough decisions you need to take, just be sure to tell us what you are doing, when and why – in clear words that everyone can understand.

And throughout, please keep reminding us of the two bigger pictures:

The picture of fear: Our country is financially bust. To overcome our overall debt, we would have to close down the police force (ten times), and you know that over the last twelve months we paid as much in interest as we did on defence. The aim must be to get out of the national mindset that it’s ok to be constantly in debt.

And the picture of hope: Our country is great. We have new companies and entrepreneurs starting up every day, who must be encouraged, we have some of the most successful business leaders in the world, and our public services are second to none.

Balancing these two agendas will take a level of leadership rarely seen anywhere in the world – I wish you well.

David

    I believe the pair of them look like they want to make a go of it and Cameron has come out with some interesting sound bites. he is very convincing to listen to in my opinion. I like him as a player in the wotld hierarchy and believe he will lead us to better times. Keeping the business leaders happy will be a difficult ask. We have to make sure that the Lib/Tory pact is a sustainable one and let's hope they haven't done this just to get into power. It was shameless schmoozing from Clegg in a way, he was the powerbroker and yet he was the man who was whipped at the polls. It's a silly system that gives him te power when he lost seats. I sincerely hope they are sincere and want to lead this country back to greatness. As David says there are some very good things about Britain and we have to make sure they are recognised. There is no doubt the Government has a huge task but I'm sure they are the right people to make it right. Especially Vince Cable. i would have liked to have seen him become chancellor rather than Dave's buddy but we will see whether Mr Osborne is up to the job.

    Surely their primary goal was to gain the power without really thinking about the big differences in party politics. I cannot see how this will benefit the country.

    I agree. The primary goal for DC has been to gain power. Expect a few blunt sideliners to his deputy Prime Minister in the coming months. This cuckoo is just bedding down and the means for gaining the power has served its purpose. It will be difficult for this relationship to co-exist for any length of time. The Lib-lab pact lasted about 6 months. I expect to see a repeat performance of putting on a show of unity and then dissolving the agreement.

  • A disaster waiting to happen methinks! Back to the polling station then!?
