The lights of London are growing dim as the nation witnesses the departure from power of Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his replacement by David Cameron, leader of the Conservative Party. Brown attempted to form a coalition with Nick Clegg, leader of Liberal Democrats, but to pursue this path only would have created chaos and uncertainty at a time when his nation needs a sense of stability. It is now up to Conservatives and Liberal Democrats to steer their country through the morass of an economic collapse and violence in the world. One doubts if they will offer dramatically different views on how to handle terrorism and conflict in Afghanistan, let alone on jump starting the economy.
Oops, we hear the fat lady singing, time to leave the stage of power, Mr. Brown.
