The Blogging Tory two-cans-and-a-piece-of-string communications network is up and running, as everyone rushes to congratulate Stephen Harper on his unparallelled ability to congratulate other people:
The fact that Cameron, without an outright majority, is still at the mercy of the Lib Dems is a detail that would only tarnish an adorable story line, so it's carefully excised.
HOW ... ODD: Apparently, Captain Canada Taylor seems singularly unfazed by the latest developments across the big water (emphasis tail-waggingly added):
Speaking from the steps of the official residence at 10 Downing Street, Cameron said Tuesday evening the Queen has asked him to form a new government and he has accepted. Cameron will form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats. The party's leader, Nick Clegg, will become deputy prime minister.
Stephen Taylor seems perfectly fine with the idea of a coalition government in Britain. This would be the same Stephen Taylor who hysterically wet himself, shrieking about the evils of a coalition government here in Canada not that long ago.
How times have changed.
