London, May 16 (ANI): The British proletariat has given a thumbs up to the David Cameron led coalition, silencing cynics who felt that the government’s days are numbered, a survey has revealed.
According to the Ipsos MORI, poll more than 54 percent of the people are optimistic about the new Prime Minister’s helmsmanship ability. While 60 percent feel the Lib-Con alliance will do good for Britain.
Seventy two percent feel that Nick Clegg and Cameron’s decision to set aside their mutual differences to form the government was the right one.
Helen Coombs, Ipsos MORI’s deputy head of political research, told News of The World “We’re seeing a sense of optimism about the new coalition government.”
“It is clear that David Cameron is starting to build the same positive thoughts among ordinary people as he has done within our party. He did a wonderful job in lifting our spirits on election night when things weren’t going as we’d all hoped,” the paper quoted a Tory insider as saying.
Four out of ten — 41 percent — believe the country’s general economic condition will improve over the next 12 months.
A total 22 percent think it will stay the same and only 31 percent fear it will get worse.
But people are split over whether it will be able to make decisions, with nearly half believing both parties have sacrificed principles for the sake of power, the paper reports. (ANI)
