Con-Lab Grand Alliance.

Recommended Posts

It's only the likes of Cameron's ambitions and that of Gordon Brown that is stopping the Conservatives and Labour getting together in a Grand Alliance. It's been done in many countries when the national interest and economy need it.

 

The major sticking point is who is the politician, past or present, but capable of leading a Con-Lab Alliance? Any suggestions of who in these two major parties could win enough respect to be Prime Minister to lead us out of the current stalemate. Would have to be someone who could rise about party politics.

 

How's about Lord David Owen, former Foreign Minister, founder of Social Dems?

So many harping on about unelected Prime Ministers. We don't elect Prime Ministers in the UK. We elect Parties and Parties decide on leaders or who's Prime Minister. Sir Winston Churchill wasn't elected till 1950 but lead the country throughout WW2. Sir Alex Douglas Home and John Major weren't elected at first.

 

There must surely be someone in Politics, Labour, Conservative or Lib Dem who could command enough respect at this time of electoral and economic crisis.
