After the U.K. Election, a Dis-United Kingdom?

 

Whether it’s the rise of the Scottish National Party, the future of Britain’s association with the European Union or the rising nationalist (read: anti-immigrant) sentiment at home, David Cameron has his work cut out for him. I interviewed the Henry Jackson Society’s Douglas Murray, who happened to be passing through New York City today:

    Three minutes? That’s all? Is this a longer thing broken to pieces?

    Mary,

    Funny, Douglas Murray’s take on the UK election is very much the same as the Israeli election. Conservatives were more concerned about keeping the liberal out than voting their exact preference. The smaller parties got squeezed and Netenyahu received the benefits. Clegg and UKIP got squeezed as everyone wanted to make sure that Red Ed was dead.

    Regards,

    Jim

    No, Titus, we keep the segments short for our busy viewers.

    I think the Tories were lucky Ed was atop Labour, and not David. Adrian Wooldridge makes the argument here: http://www.politico.eu/article/why-the-tories-crushed-miliband/

    Mary,

    Maybe Ed and Tzipi should date. Seriously, it’s a good sign. Conservative voters are using their head. Showing their cool under fire.
