Nick Robinson (H/T Below the Beltway) of the BBC examines the various coalition scenarios in the wake of what is generally conceded by all to be an unsatisfying UK election results. His conclusion?

…which I guess means a push for proportional representation in voting results, which means that fringe parties could be more likely to get seats in Parliament – thus exacerbating the problem*. Personally, I think that we’re going to keep our supposedly creaky two-party system, thanks. At least I know who the heck is going to be running the country the day after an election.
