The new government's programme

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politi...10/8676607.stm

So many questions!!!

Why did Con drop the inheritance tax cap proposal? Did Lib ask them to?

What about the schools proposal that would aim to give teachers more power over their students and bring better control and respect into the classrooms?

Libs are backing down on the Trident plan? NOOOOO fight it!!

Otherwise, very pleased. In a way I have the best of both worlds. ;o)

I will keep an open mind but i am not a fan of the tories, maybe the Lib dems will help even them out a bit. Right away though i am not a fan of higher income taxes on lower earners . . . . I am one of those lower earners and if they take much more tax of me it will bearly be worth me working where i am. I might as well work part time of on a min wage job!

I said this last night: One thing seems evident... Lib dems have pumped 10 years of modernisation into the tory party in 4 days - nice one CLeggy!

Now let's see how much more they can do

Yes, I believe Lib Dems didn't want to raise the inheritance tax threshold but I'm glad they have backed down on Trident. I'm hoping that if Cameron's stance is genuinely as 'moderate' as it has appeared, the LibDem involvement will ensure that it stays that way if he gets pressure from his 'grass roots' colleagues.

Personally, I'm struggling to see how this is going to work in the long run. Is it just a matter of time before the more left wing Lib Dems start to drift over to the over side???

Apparently, they have agreed to the Lib Dems wanting to raise the income tax threshold to 10 000, so you should be better off.

Not sure about marriage being recognised in the taxes either and will be watching with some fear and interest as to what is going to happen with tax credits.
