MAJORITY SWINGS: UNGOVERNABLE UK Although, according to some surveys, Tories are the first national party, it seems that they may not be the absolute majority

  • Italiano

UK is not certain anymore, after years of political stability, for the elections on May 7th nothing is certain. In the best case, there could be a fragile coalition or a minority government. According to a study of Nat Silver, conservatives will be the first party, they will obtain the relative majority but not the absolute one, which could not be obtained, even if they worked with some centered or right wing parties.

The Labour party is the second national party and should obtain absolute majority, if they work with lib-dem, with the Gales party and thanks to the support of the independent Welsh party. However, the Labour party could be attacked by Scotland about budget and nuclear weapons.

The only certain thing is instability. It seems that being the economically strongest country in Europe is not enough. Cameron is not going to win as easily as he should because the majority of new workplaces are not well paid and working classes did not get back to their standards. The whole country is feeling social injustice, which is made stronger by cuts to public budgets.

In addition, there is the personality of the PM, he was educate in Eton and Oxford, he is the child of a rich family, Cameron is the symbol of privileges. They accused him of lack of passion, energy and charisma in his campaign.

The real star of the campaign is Nicola Sturgeon, 44, leader of the Welsh party, he could get 50 out of 59 seats, he won in every debate in TV, and he brought honesty and new ideas.
