THIS year’s general election was more gripping than those of 2005, 2001 and 1997.
In the last three elections Labour returned to power with a convincing majority.
But this year no-one was sure how the result would go. However it was predicted that a hung parliament was a distinct possibility.
So I am astounded that no party had made any plans for that result.
David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown should have each put together an action plan, in case there was a hung parliament.
Labour and the Lib Dems could have talked about what they would do in the event of a hung parliament and the Tories-Lib-Dems done the same.
This would have prevented the state of limbo we are currently going through. The result was known on Friday and a government has not been formed yet. How long will it take for a conclusion to be reached?
There are many issues that need to be resolved in the country and a government must be found sooner rather than later. We can’t afford to waste more time.
Meanwhile, I was very disappointed that Liverpool finished in seventh place in this year’s Premier League, below Man City, Aston Villa and Tottenham.
That’s another season gone without any silverware.
Something must now be done to try and reverse the fortunes of this great club.
