The British coalition government is looking increasingly unlikely to last until the next election in 2015, according to new reports in the Times of London.It looks like Liberal Democrats, the junior partners in the coalition, are emasculated by their lack of power in the government, and are worried that their terrible results in last week’s local elections are only a sign of worse to come — the end of the party.
The Times of London discovered that Senior Lib Dem members are now calling for the party to leave the coalition before the 2015 election in a bid to regain popularity before the election.
The paper also reports that Conservatives are apparently all too aware of how weak the coalition is, and Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron turned down a request from his own party to attack Nick Clegg, leader of the Lib Dems last week.
