And so it is....................as per the above dictionary definition David Cameron with Nick Clegg's support has "inflicted his party's loss on" us all by agreeing a dodgy deal with the party who finished third in the election.
All this despite the country's "express and complete disapproval of" the horse trading that has been going on behind closed doors, meaning that we are now "sentenced to the punishment" of a parliament under the control of Mssrs Cameron and Clegg.
No doubt that our public services will now also have to "endure something unpleasant" as the inevitable and jointly imposed cuts hit home hard in closures, reduced services and job losses.
Well let me be the first to declare this unholy marraige totally "unfit for use" and worry ye not! at every step and every turn in both the County Council and Borough Council chambers I will reminding the public of the complicity of these two unatural bedfellows as the truth unfolds as to the details of the deal that has been agreed behind closed doors.
What are the County Tory administration and the Lib Dem Borough administration going to do in their respective chambers are the Lib Dem and Tory oppositions in both now to be a party within a party? Will they both approve any government imposed cuts? and where will the opposition to those cuts now come from?
One thing though is for sure, with both partys taking a short term grab for power they will in future pay a very heavy price both in next years local elections and in the next general election for their decision and also for the impact that Tory economic policy will have on both public services, the financial markets and in our pockets.
Finally both parties may be unaware of the "Progressive Democrats" in Ireland? but I think the logo of the Irish Party should suit their newly created fudge very well? Although "Aggressive Autocrats" might be a more accurate description?
What do you think?
