If anything has been demonstrated by the recent UK Coalition Government, it is the power of diplomacy and political will. Who would have believed, after watching both Cameron and Clegg sparring in the recent leaders’ debates, that they would be standing side by side to deliver a joint press conference in the garden of No.10 Downing Street.
Seeing them together and listening to their words, unashamedly I felt myself feeling both excitement and hope. If two leaders from opposing political parties have the will and the imagination to change the face of our politics in a matter of days, then just think what you and I can achieve in our lives? All that is required is imagination, definiteness of purpose and the will to make it happen.
It is very easy to say that it won’t work, and I am sure that there are many who think in this way. It is far braver however, and more forward thinking to say ‘let’s give them every chance.’
We live in a World that is made up of beliefs and values that cover the complete spectrum from liberalism to extremism. And yet we sometimes forget that we are all connected in the common struggle and magic that is called life. We all have one common purpose.
I agree with you Nick and Dave.
