May 7th saw a decisive Conservative win in the UK Elections. With 51% of the votes and 331/ 650 seats the country has spoken… things will pretty much be as they have always been with a little kilter towards the centre right. The misconception that a Labour government will usher in an absolutely liberal way of life is, at best, childishly naïve, at worst, delusional. If Britons wanted a liberal way of life the Green Party would have far more kudos than it has now. Likewise; if Right Wing fanaticism were the colour Du jour the country would have turned purple overnight. Note that UKIP failed to secure a seat in Westminster, and the Green Party have 1 seat, despite a surge in votes for both parties. The Liberal Democrats have all but been wiped out, Labour, and the Conservatives, retain the positions they have always tussled over, and a smattering of independents joust at the bottom of the political pool; thus we continue to live in the UK of our choosing.
