The Daily Mail's headline really makes me chuckle - "a squalid day for democracy." How is is the prospect of a rainbow coaltion, whose parties collectively received over 55% of the vote, less legitimate than a still likely minority Conservative administration, enjoying a mere 36% of the vote? It appears that anything the Daily Mail does not like is undemocratic, even if it isn't. The right wing press are petrified that their man will not walk through number 10, revealing to all their waning influence. These are the motivations behind such headlines, rather than any concern for fair play.
