I don't remember ever having been so angry in all my life.
I do hope that the 10 million Conservative supporters are, like me, prepared to put our money where our mouths are if this travesty of democracy goes ahead.
I am not a Conservative activist, I'm just a plain old fashioned voter who, until today, believed in democracy.
More fool me.
Since then, several commenters have reacted to her words. Here are a couple of other comments...
"I don't remember being so angry in all my life either and I'm Labour!! National interest? As if! This is an outrage. Labour LOST this election. It's OVER." Sarah
"I agree with Marie. I'm a Conservative voter but not an activist. Tomorrow that changes. I'm joining the Conservative Party." Southsea Expact
"Like Marie, I am so angry by today's developments. I voted Conservative at this past election (having voted Labour in '97 and '01, and Lib Dem in '05). My pencil hovered over the ballot paper last week, but I voted Conservative. This is all to say that I'm not a die-hard Conservative (although I am a political junkie). But if the Lib-Dems enter a coalition with Labour, my first act will be join to the Conservative Party in protest and give a substantial (or at least what is substantial for me as I'm not very well paid) donation to the Conservative Party."
I'm a Lib Dem voter and have been for many years. Before the election I was hoping for a strong showing (70-80 seats) to form the basis of an alliance with Labour to keep you guys out. However, the way it turned out there is absolutely no way that is a legitimate option now. The message is clear the electorate wants a Conservative led government - Hopefully the Lib Dems might opt to be involved and temper it but what can't happen is them propping up a discredited Labour government. I don't think I could vote for them in the inevitable election when the coalition collapses when Labour are unable to live up to their promises. So if that's how a committed Lib Dem feels I can imagine the general public will cast the party into oblivion and to be honest they'd be right." Deadly Mittens
"First let me say how much I enjoy your blogs and also your appearances on TV and listening to you on radio. Enjoyed Blind Date today.
I am 61 and last thursday I was a first time Conservative voter (if you listen quietly you may hear my socialist Clydeside father turning in his grave). In some ways I did it with a heavy heart but was so fed up with seeing this Country being systematically destroyed by the Labour Government.
So I am appalled, but not necessarily surprised, by today's events. They really are a bunch of slimeballs. Never a big fan of pretty boy Clegg now whoreing himself to the highest bidder. I hope David Cameron tells him where to get off!!! I am so angry.
I will most certainly be supporting the Conservative Party in the future. It is like sex. A considered decision the first time and not to be taken lightly, but the second time will be a lot easier and I may even enjoy it and not feel guilty. (Sorry dad)." Kate
