Two men David Cameron and Nick Clegg, one week after  the election,  gave their first press-conference at  the rose garden of 10 Downing Street.

The Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, started this adventurous coalition not long trustworthy by voters: it was a lucky moment or happening by chance ?
In fact Cameron exclaimed ': I can not believe it. All those people out there just for us ... Clegg: I know. And crazy, is not it [unk] I have to keep pinching myself. Cameron: I repeat ... Continue Clegg: What? Cameron: Call me the prime minister ... The storms partnership Dave and Nick would have to face (political scandals, gay marriage, riots, plebgate, economic recession, riots , immigration...) were so vague. 
Actually John Crace paints a picture of such abnormal and crazy coalition; while waiting for the next general election of 2015  the reader makes a depth equidistant thinking  and even entertaining about  the English political situation.
