Twas ever thus

Re Cleggsky and Jonah talks for a new Lib-Lab pact;

In the words of an olde English ballad, originally bemoaning the banning of Christmas celebrations by Puritans following the English Civil War;
Listen to me and you shall hear, news hath not been this thousand year:
Since Herod, Caesar, and many more, you never heard the like before.
British voters are despis'd, new government devis'd.
Democracy is kicked out of Tow
Yet let's be content, and the times lament, you see the world's turn'd upside down.
With more than a nod of the head to the original English ballad 'The world turned upside down' as sung post Naseby.

It is of little consolation to note that Lib-Lab pacts have always ended in tears. Like the song, it's almost a tradition.

Heavy sigh.
