The United Kingdom is in economic and budgetary crisis. The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats have joined forces to provide a strong government, able to take the necessary unpleasant measures.
David Cameron and Nick Clegg and their parties have admirably compromised to establish a much needed consensual political culture. There of course remain major differences.

Most newspapers supported the Conservatives. It would be great if they continue this support for a Conservative-led coalition.Author : Stanley Crossick
