City Views | Do you think the coalition relaunch will succeed?

Any advertising is good advertising at the moment for the coalition. I guess it is about showing unity and affirming they are still together, and the purpose is internally just as much as an external target audience. I would like them to announce that the deficit is going down, and a reaffirmation that they are still united.

No, a coalition will never work. There are just too many different and contradicting views; it is like having a mini parliament within the government. A good relaunch, though, would be if they went gentler on the middle class. They have clearly imposed an own goal with the child benefit cut.

I do not think the relaunch will make a scrap of difference. It is just words. As long as they manage the economy well, we will be fine. And at the moment, I think they are actually doing quite well, despite the difficult circumstances.
