The coalition Cabinet – hitting the ground running.

I understand that the first Cabinet meeting of the new LibCon (or as Kent Labour wag Les Christie put it today, “ConDem”) coalition took place on Thursday, with the two party leaders sitting opposite, rather than next to each other. The main jobs have been allocated, now secondary posts will follow. The policy aspirations have been coming thick and fast too, with the release of a summary document of the agreements reached during the Coalition Negotiations.

Details of deficit reduction, taxation, immigration, education and more are mentioned. I notice however that on political reform in the House of Lords, proposals will be brought forward for a “wholly or mainly elected upper chamber” with draft motions by December of this year.

Finally, the ‘West Lothian Question’ will be addressed, as will the sometimes opaque world of the lobbyist.

It’s a mountain to climb, but it shows a degree of political maturity from the new coalition administration.
