With other parties forming alliances to avoid vote-splitting in order to beat the Big Two, the Conservatives and Labour decided to beat them at their own game and form their own alliance.
But whatever the name, the alliance virtually guarantees their combined victory at the polls on December 12th.
With most of Labour more pro-Brexit than anti-Brexit most of the time, or at least some of the time or at least when it seems most politically expedient, the Tories will be able to push their Brexit deal before the next deadline runs out.
In return, the Tories have promised to support Labour in their spending plans although this is no arduous task as both Tory and Labour spending promises are identical.
However, this will require copious amounts of borrowing and an inevitable hike in tax,
A spokesperson for the Treasury said: “They’re mad!
“It would be like being back in the EU but without any of the benefits.
“Individually, the parties were simply trying to ‘top trump’ each other by promising larger and larger amounts of spending.
“Maybe with their alliance they’ll stop playing silly buggers.
“But at least we can be sure of one thing – they’ll certainly welsh on their promises so we really don’t have any cause to worry.”
What would be a worse alliance than the Tories and Labour?
Who’s the worst promise-welsher you know? Sorry, politicians are not eligible
