Agreements reached between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats on a range of issues.

With all of the press coverage about the new coalition I thought I would publish the full text of the agreement between the two parties.

I am still trying to come to terms with what this new direction in British politics will mean in practice.


  1. I looked and was bored by end of first paragraph. I am now going to have a lay down in a darkened room and sip iced lemon tea until the will to live returns

  2. I think that the Libdems have pressed the self destruct button. At the next general election what will be the point of voting for them? I will be supprised if in the next local elections they get a look in. They wont attract any floating voters.

    Has anyone else noticed what a po-faced boring person the new schools minister Michael Gove appears to be. I just hope he has other qualities that will benifit the childen of this country. Maybe he needs a bit of training in humour and public speaking.

  3. Don I think they do this deliberately to stop us from reading these things.

    13.35, 5 years and 55% for a vote of no confidence does seem to be a bit hard to swallow I must admit, but even so I think people will vote at the next election based on the achievement of this government

  4. At local elections there is often an anti government vote. This was very apparent at last years KCC's election when the excesses and losses in Icelandic banks were ignored by the voters and Labour was almost wiped out. So if there is an anti government vote at the TDC election next year both the Conservatives and the LibDems will sufer. Its not as though the LibDems in Thanet are starting from a position of strength.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
