How long will the Con-Lib coalition last?

THE NEW Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government was formed yesterday. But how much confidence does it inspire in the City? And will it be able to last a full five years? With jittery financial markets, it will have to reassure the UK’s debtors, but will it be able to? And what of Sterling, which has fallen in recent weeks? Have your say by answering these questions.

1) How much or little confidence do you have in the new Conservative-Liberal Democrat government?

2) How long do you think the government will last for?

3) Yesterday, the yield on the benchmark UK 10 year gilt was 3.84 per cent. We want you to forecast the range for the benchmark UK 10 year gilt in three months time.

4) Yesterday, sterling was worth $1.48540. We want you to forecast the range for sterling against the dollar in three months time.
