So yes, this coalition - which is a fledgling government that will not be possible to assess effectively until after it has left power - is, thus far, the best government in a generation. But for over 20 years, this country has had pretty dreadful government from its political class. And this is what bothers me - it isn't really an achievement to be the best government in a generation when you've only just started and when your immediate predecessors have been shit. The bar has been set so low for Cameron et al that they will be able to claim success even if they succeed at nothing other than avoiding direct, clear-cut failure.
... and a thought suddenly occurred to me (these things do happen, from time to time)...
Let us assume that this Coalition is, in fact, absolutely super; let us assume that, at the end of their term, they have gone a long way to balancing the books, have sorted out the state failures and are generally (pretty much) everything that we could reasonably hope for; let us also assume that we, the people, believe that it is the combination of Conservatives and LibDems that have made it so; and let us further assume that Our New Coalition Overlords™ are so super, that we wish them to continue in government for another term.
Tell me: how, exactly, do we vote for that?
