  2. Poll gives Lib Dem/Con coalition 60% approval

    from the Liberal Democratic Voice blog in Britain

    By The Voice | Published 14th May 2010 – 5:48 pm

    A YouGov poll suggests that the Lib Dem/Conservative coalition has the approval of 60% of the public – almost exactly the combined vote of the two parties in last week’s General Election.

    Of course, the reality is slightly more complex than this, with a significant minority of Labour voters approving and not every Lib Dem or Conservative voter being in favour.

    Here’s what YouGov say:

    The British public broadly approve of the Conservative-Lib Dem coalition that, under Tory David Cameron, now forms the Government at Westminster. 60% of the British public say they approve of the Conservative-LibDem coalition, following an unprecedented week in British politics. This is more than double the percentage of those who disapprove (33%), and it seems that, Labour supporters excepted, the majority of those across the nation either strongly approve or tend to approve of the controversial union between these hitherto political rivals.

    The approval rate among Labour supporters is at a less positive 25% in comparison to a huge 87% of Conservative supporters, and 69% of Liberal Democrat supporters.

    [For a general Tory blog, see Conservative Home. I don’t know right now what are good representative blogs for Labour or the Greens, although you could start at sites like the New Statesman or Tribune.]

    • Is there really a progressive majority? (in Britain)

      Fri, 14/05/2010 – 09:30

      by Peter Kellner in the New Statesman

      See this column.

      Kellner says that the first British general election television debates did make a discernible difference, although not as great as the mid-campaign polls had indicated. He also suggests that, despite the numbers, it’s not clear that a Labour-Liberal Democratic coalition would have commanded more support in the country than the present (Conservative-LDP) one.

    A three to zero game lead and they blow it losing to the Philly Flyers 4 to 3 in Game seven at the Garden this evening.

    That team shall be called the Boston Ruins by me from now on!

    And to think they have not won a game since the dedication of the Bobby Orr statue on Mother’s Day.

  7. RIP Space Shuttle Atlantis next month. James, I know there isn’t much of an argument for going back to the moon, but ultimaley if humans are ever going to actualy “go where no one has gone before” they are going to need to set up a base on the Moon to show that it is possible to habitate on another celstial body. I am a bit sad, the last shuttle launch in November I will be taking off from work to watch it at the Air and Space Museum.

  42. The Ulster Unionist Party was the utterly-dominant party in Northern Ireland, which it basically founded, from 1922 into the 1990’s. (The Civil Rights Association and People’s Democracy of the late 1960’s was the Catholic reaction to the iron Protestant Unionist monopoly on local government and policing.)

    But the Ulster Unionists have now been eclipsed by Rev. Ian Paisley’s Democratic Unionist Party (who now share leadership in Belfast with Gerry Adams’ Sinn Féin) and just lost their last seat (Down North) in the Westminster Parliament on May 6th. The UUP MP who held that seat, Lady Sylvia Hermon, kept it with an increased majority in 2010, but as an independent after disagreeing with the Ulster Unionists’ revival of their historic alliance with the British Conservative Party.

    Today, the Ulster Unionist Party leader, Sir Reg Empey, personally unsuccessful in a campaign for South Antrim, announced he will retire later this summer, setting off a battle to lead what is now a very small party. He suggested that the Unionists reconsider their alliance with the Tories, and that the DUP’s present leader, Peter Robinson, who lost his own Westminster seat this month, might also want to retire to leave the unionist field open for new leaders and a possible realignment of parties.

    Those interested in the finer details of Irish politics can see these BBC (Northern Ireland) stories:

    Sir Reg Empey to stand down as UUP leader in autumn

    Who could be next UUP leader?

  49. I’m sure it’s my own blinders, but it seems as if Democratic Presidents appoint reasonable but rather spongy moderates (Breyer, Ginsburg, Sotomayor) while Republicans appoint true-believing ideologues (Roberts, Alito, Scalia, Thomas), with only Anthony Kennedy as more of a technical or non-ideological lawyer. I haven’t checked the sequence, but someone said that recent justices have always been replaced by someone more conservative or less liberal.

    And as I’ve often said, with the departure of Souter and O’Connor, there seems to be no one on the court who’s had regular experience, as a prosecutor, trial-level judge or public defender, with the way that motions are handled, testimony originally given and juries addressed at the pre-appellate level. This gives something of an unrealistic air to their theoretical expectations of (for example) what is an improper influence on a juror or an unreasonable burden on a defendant or plaintiff. A possible exception might be Thomas’s service in the Missouri Attorney General’s office, depending on what kind of work this involved (appeals or trial-level prosecutions and lawsuits).

  50. Lib Dem activists have “overwhelmingly” backed leader Nick Clegg’s coalition deal with the Conservatives.

    They voted to support a motion at a special conference in Birmingham, a party source told the BBC.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/8685341.stm

    There was speculation Mr Clegg would face hostility after ex-leader Charles Kennedy said he could not bring himself to back the deal when MPs voted on it.
    The conference had no power to overturn the coalition agreement, but could have amended the motion to endorse it.

    ‘Big moment’

    Speaking ahead of the event, which was held behind closed doors, Mr Clegg said: “We are a very democratic party and of course the creation of the coalition government was a real big moment in British politics.

    “It’s absolutely right that we are now going to debate it together.”

    Mr Clegg had already received the backing of his MPs and the party’s federal executive committee for the coalition, which will see his party sharing power with the Conservatives at Westminster, after the Tories failed to gain enough votes at the general election to win an outright majority.

    That meant the Lib Dem leader did not have to formally seek the approval of party members – but he will have been anxious to gain their backing amid reports of grassroots discontent and opinion polls suggesting voters were switching their support to Labour.

    The new deputy prime minister is reported to have received a standing ovation from Lib Dem activists at Birmingham’s NEC. Party sources said no more than a dozen of the 2,000 delegates opposed the deal in a show of hands.

    …more at

    Nick Clegg questioned by Lib Dems over Tory deal

    Note that this report is not an offical one.

    ¶ Before today’s conference recent leaders of the Liberal Democrats have expressed widely differing views of the coalition with the Tories and its wisdom, for example, these columns and stories from The Observer and The Guardian:

    Top Liberal Democrats open rift over coalition with Conservatives

    Charles Kennedy: Why I couldn’t support Clegg’s deal with the Tories

      +++ Lib Dem special conference overwhelmingly approves Lib Dem / Conservative coalition agreement

      By Stephen Tall | Published 16th May 2010 – 5:20 pm
      [ = 12:20 p.m. EDT = 9:20 a.m. PDT]

      Just minutes ago, the Lib Dems’ special conference in Birmingham – convened by the party to give members the chance to give their views on the decision to enter into a government with the Conservatives – overwhelmingly approved the coalition agreement.

      Estimates in the hall, where about 1,500 Lib Dem members debated the coalition, suggested that about 50 conference representatives voted against the motion endorsing the agreement: the rest of the hundreds eligible to vote were all in favour.

      Here’s some of what Lib Dem Leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, had to say immediately after the vote:….

      ***

      +++ 91% of Lib Dem members back Lib-Con coalition agreement, says LDV poll

      By Stephen Tall | Published 15th May 2010 – 11:00 pm
      [= 6 p.m. EDT = 3 p.m. PDT Saturday]

      Lib Dem Voice has been conducting a survey of party members registered on our members’ forum asking them for their views of the coalition government agreement between the Lib Dems and the Conservatives. Over 600 have responded, and here’s what you told us …

      LDV asked: If you were able to vote, would you choose to support the motion proposing the Lib Dems enter into a coalition government with the Conservatives?

      91% – Yes, I would support the motion
      9% – No, I would not support the motion
      (excluding Don’t knows, 4%) …

      However, it’s also clear from our survey that there is a small-but-significant minority of party members who are opposed to the coalition agreement. Indeed, our survey results released earlier today indicate up to 4% of members are considering resigning their membership. The party will be hoping that those who actually take that decision are offset by the hundreds of new members who have reportedly joined the Lib Dems in the days since the coalition was announced. …

      Lib Dem Voice e-mailed the survey to over 1,200 party members registered on our members’ forum on Friday. As of Saturday evening, over 600 (c.50%) had responded. Please note: we make no claims that the survey is representative of the Lib Dem membership as a whole, let alone of conference representatives who will have a vote at Sunday’s conference. Indeed, the survey seems skewed towards male party members living in the south of England. However it is the largest survey yet published of the views of Lib Dem members.

      AND yeah we’re a pretty young Church that’s right BUT even the older people jumping up and down on those Praise Songs.

      BTW Reuben Morgan (the Guy with the back shirt) and Darlene Zschech wrote the second Song.

      All our Songs are self-written. How cool is that.

      We recorded this Album on Nov. 8th last year. The first Song was recorded at the Sydney Entertainment Center and the second one at our own Campus in the Hillsong Church Convention Center.

      Can’t wait to see the Full Album released on July 5th.

    Charlotte Lewis, who came forward about her history with Polanski at a press conference Friday, told London’s Daily Mail this weekend she initially refused the director’s advances when she met him in 1983 to audition for “Pirates.”

    ‘He just said very coldly, “If you’re not a big enough girl to have sex with me, you’re not big enough to do the screen test. I must sleep with every actress that I work with, that’s how I get to know them, how I mould them,” ‘ Lewis said.

    Though the 16-year-old left Polanski’s Paris apartment claiming she had a boyfriend, she later returned and eventually won the role in “Pirates.”

    “I never told my mother what had happened,” Lewis told the Mail. “I was just too ashamed. I needed to do this movie, the money was good – I was being paid £1,200 a month. My mother and I were living in housing association accommodation and this was a life-changing amount of money.”
