As the British political system cartwheels into chaos after the return of a hung Parliament, Anti-war campaigner Maria Gallastegui manages to take the message of peace directly to the heart of the seat of Government, entirely on her own.
The night before, around 25 Million British electors vote in the British elections returning the British Conservative party as the majority party but with insufficient Parliamentary seats to ensure Government in practical form. Despite losing seats on the night, and to confirm a popular strategic shift in the votes cast, the Liberal Democratic party emerge as the most powerful party with leader Nick Clegg, holding firmly onto the political scales of power.
During the election, a strategic shift took place within the electorate driven by media polls and sponsored televised debates favouring the Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg. As a result, migrating Labour voters inbound to the Conservatives were halted and dispersed preventing a majority Conservative Government from forming.
The strategy is driven by Labour crisis tacticians convinced that the Liberal Democrats will ultimately favour a Lib/Labour coalition in order to negotiate progress with nuclear disarmament and voting and tax system reform.
The tactic is evidence that the underlying Labour party continue to flounder as a direct result of the wars it has been waging and the death toll that it continues to be responsible for.
