I Should Co-Coalition
Review of What has the past five years taught us about the merits and demerits of government by a coalition rather than a single party ? by cr01

Advantages: It's about the number of seats the government has, not the coalition
Disadvantages: I foresee 5 years of struggle

But aren’t we always governed by a coalition of sorts? I’m always interested in the concept of a political party because it is not as if everyone in that party speaks with one voice. It is actually more a loose collective of people who agree wit ... Read review

Marriage of Cons and Deviance
Review of What has the past five years taught us about the merits and demerits of government by a coalition rather than a single party ? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Yay, we're back financially where we started in 2010
Disadvantages: Expect Clegg's autobiography out in the bookshops soon

In retrospect a coalition government has taught us that a five year marriage plays havoc with your mind and finances and you inevitably squabble over the box set of policies. Like in all marriages, you’re amalgamated as one; and over five years you act, d ... Read review

I Miss The Old Days On Dooyoo
Review of What do you think about the Dooyoo redesign? by aclevername

Advantages: it's still up and running
Disadvantages: a terrible change over, fewer members - quiet, no cash payout etc.

I joined Dooyoo in April 2012. As you will probably know Dooyoo is a review website, much like Ciao. I wrote a review on Dooyoo a few years ago giving feedback and suggestions on the website, but last year the website made massive changes to its layout a ... Read review

An interesting read. It's a shame that Dooyoo has become what it has, I used to find it very rewarding but now there's no incentive to post reviews, for me any way! by StewwyB
I got bored of Dooyoo and donated my last 'miles' to charity then quit - before the redesign. I haven't found any reason to return! by Kukana

When working together works
Review of What has the past five years taught us about the merits and demerits of government by a coalition rather than a single party ? by torr

Advantages: Sometimes necessary, sometimes even desirable
Disadvantages: Hard for voters to know what to expect

“Britain does not love coalitions,” said Disraeli, and history has tended to prove him right even if the reasons for that lack of love are hard to fathom. Distaste for coalition government is a peculiarly British trait. In most western democracies it ... Read review

It works, so let's not be afraid of more
Review of What has the past five years taught us about the merits and demerits of government by a coalition rather than a single party ? by a-true-ben

Advantages: Coalition works and, with a suitable electoral system, has support of a majority.
Disadvantages: No system is perfect - electoral accountability is an issue, but this is always an issue.

Coalition government is not unprecedented in the UK, but the 2010 coming together the Conservative and Liberal Democrats was the first governing coalition since 1945 and certainly made things more interesting for political analysts and commentators. I th ... Read review

A success for the ICC - A failure for true fans!
Review of Cricket World Cup: do you think it's been a successful tournament for the ICC? by pumfster

Advantages: Lined the pockets of the ICC.
Disadvantages: Lack of close matches. Possibly the last time we will see the minnows at a World Cup.

So as another cricket world cup ends, it’s time to reflect on the events of the past several weeks. We have learned that some things in world cricket don’t change – Australia still know how to win, you still have no idea what you are going to get from Wes ... Read review

Advantages: mental simulation

Punch & Jeremy Show
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: 1 million petitions are a testament to the genius
Disadvantages: Compensation culture is rearing its ugly lip

In 2005, an Oxford honorary degree was awarded to Clarkson; a Doctor of Engineering . His awkward shuffling from foot to foot implied he wasn’t a man comfortable with formal ceremonies or was from the establishment. His inward embarrassment was heighten ... Read review

A storm in a teacup instigated by a short-sighted hotel
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by rolandrat123

Advantages: Shows Clarkson still has lots of fans
Disadvantages: Started as a storm in a teacup

Who is to blame – Clarkson or the BBC? Well I am sure everyone in the country has heard about this saga as it has even been commented on by the Prime Minister. For those who have been in hibernation there was an altercation at a hotel between Clar ... Read review

Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by hiker

Advantages: No such thing as bad publicity
Disadvantages: Or is there?

Simple answer: No, I don't support the suspension. Before I'm swamped by righteously indignant objectors to people getting thumped by the boss, let me explain. On 'Top Gear' and 'Clarkson' I don't drive and haven't the remotest interest in ... Read review

Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Are there any?

Keep Clarkson!
Review of Do You Support BBC's Decision To Suspend Jeremy Clarkson? by magicpandapop

Advantages: No more of James May's ridiculous shirts
Disadvantages: No more punny reviews of cars, and no more borderline offensive banter

As an avid watched of Top Gear, I was saddened to hear that Jeremy Clarkson had been suspended. Despite his rather abrasive personality, I find him highly amusing, and one of the main reasons I watch Top Gear. I imagine, though I don't know for certain, t ... Read review

RICHADA WADES INTO A POPULARIST CONTROVERSY

Well said by supercityfan
There were families with children who witnessed his vile behaviour. I enjoy watching Top Gear, and am sad that it has had to end like this. I always loved to hate Clarkson, but to be so abusive, and expect a meal to be provided by a public corporation when the rest of us don't receive a nice slap up dinner in these chastened times, and to be so disgustingly abusive to staff of both the hotel and the team, unforgivable. And that is before we even get going on the employment law!! Great review. Good read. by orlando-revisiting
