Hundreds of 38 Degrees members have already been in touch sharing feelings about the election outcome. Most of us seem to feel pretty mixed. It’s an outcome which few of us cast our votes expecting or hoping for. Many have bad memories of last time we had a Conservative Prime Minister. But there are also reasons to hope. It’s a coalition government, not a Conservative majority.
There’s the prospect of a referendum on some changes to our voting system. There’s a chance that forcing two parties with different perspectives to work together could mean a different kind of politics. With two parties in government, and the arithmetic on key votes in parliament likely to be tight. There will be many opportunities to make our voices heard.
How are you feeling? What do you think we should do next? Let us know in the comments below
