Realignment of politics?

Share this article

A LEADING Israeli statesman once said “the Arabs hold the oil, but we have got the matches.”

After the recent local elections, are we now going to see the realignment of British politics?

Wil the Tory right get into bed with UKIP? Will the Lib Dem left regroup with the Greens? And will Labour move to the centre left, leaving the rest, as Meat Loaf’s lyric goes “all dressed up and no place to go”?

These could make politics more interesting as democracy turns up stranger quirks.
