We are all agreed now that someone needs to step up to the plate. Little enough gets done here when there is a Government. We certainly can't afford to experiment with not having one.

But we have a quandary. The Left is agitating for the Right to go into Government so the Left can focus on protesting. After all, how can you demand the overthrowing of the status quo if there is no status quo?

And the so-called Right, who are actually the Centre, are having trouble conning each other into going into government, despite the media, who egged people on to get rid of their last two governments, insisting they need to get in bed together.
