Independence Cymru predicted:
The Greens elected their first MP.
Having said that, the voters got what they wanted. They did not want Gordon Brown to remain in power for another 5 years. They understood that a large vote for the Lib Dems would allow Labour to stay in power as the largest party and they did not want that. What they wanted is what they got - a Conservative government in alliance, or with the support of, the Lib Dems. Thus the change which was so desperately needed was possible. The only downside is that the Labour front-benchers will be back in Parliament with their smirks and grimaces and inane grins except that they will no longer try to treat the public as fools.
