NO MORE GORDON BROWN.
YAY, MAYBE OUR COUNTRY WILL FINALLY AMOUNT TO SOMETHING? xD
This contains my own poltic view, so I'd rather if you didn't take offense to that...
everyone is entitled to their own.
Okay, so basically, to all you ignorant people out there who have no clue about
British politics, we just had one of the bigegst general elections ever to elect our
new Prime Minister.
The Labour party have been incharge of our country for some time now, more recently
lead by a man named Gordon Brown, who had become Prime Minister because the previous
one resigned; therefore, Mr Brown was not elected into power.
Long story short, most people down right hated the man. He kinda ruined our country
during the recession, selling all our gold and what not. (I won't go into it... it's
And so, when this general election came around, David Cameron and the Conservative
party took the most seats in Parliament, but they did not get the 50% of the vote
majority. They only got 43%.
When this happens, you get something called a hung parliament, where no parties have
the majority, and nothing can really happen unless two parties form a coalition
government to gain over 50%.
Thus, the Tories (that's the Conservaties) had two options. Either: form coaltion
with the third biggest party (behind Labour and themselves), the Liberal Democrats,
or form a minority government in parliament, which is a little risky.
Being the twat and coward he was, Gordon Brown decided to hang on the the prime
minister seat, forcing David Cameron to go into talks with the Lib Dems about
colation. However, these talks seem to be going well, so we expect that either the
Home or Foreign Secretary or even Chancellor will be given to a high seated Lib Dem
Gordon Brown and his Labour government also tried to make talks with the Lib Dems, to
try and secure a coalition, so that they might get the majority, but these EPIC
Thus, with no hope left, Gordon Brown resigned~~ yay!
(Please excuse the inaccuracies in my brief summary of politics... I just wanted to
give the general idea... lol)
And therefore, we now have a Tory (Conservative) governement basically secured for
the future~~ Which is good because I'm part of a Tory family, and, if I was able to
vote, I would probably place my vote with them.
BUTLEIK. My dad went to school with Gordon Brown. Lol.
