Rejoice, Rejoice, or why everyone has it called the coalition wrong

There are some serious reasons to rejoice about the construction of this coalition:
1 - Lib Dem finger prints all over the cuts
2 - Redraw constituencies to ensure parity of size as part of reform AND seen as disinterested
3 - Rework party funding making the union levy impossible
4 - Unwind the defacto Lib/Lab alliance in Southern England as Lab voters 'go home'
5 - Pressure on Lib Dems that might break the party as Orange bookers look to protect seats, left get fed up and leave
6 - Prevents the Jenkins dream of alliance of the 'progressive left'
7 - Enables the Westminster Govt to 'legitimately' rule Scotland, thus preserving the Union
8 - It has really upset all the right people - from Hitchens to hari, and that has to be a good thing!
