    Brown steps down, Cameron becomes prime minister

    David Cameron named UK prime minister - CNN.com

    London, England (CNN) -- New British Prime Minister David Cameron wants to form a coalition government between his Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats, he said Tuesday.

    Cameron was invited to form the next government by Queen Elizabeth II about one hour after she accepted Gordon Brown's resignation Tuesday evening.

    Given the election results this was kinda inevitable - Brown out, Cameron in. However, the cost to Cameron for the keys to #10 is having Nick Clegg as a deputy PM - and four other Lib Dems sitting on the Cabinet, for the first time in a very long while.

    It should be an interesting few years. They're only just revealing details of the lib-con coalition deal, which is turning out a mixed bunch.

    I think the deal between the Lib-Dems and the conservatives will only last until the election deal pledges have been fulfilled such as electoral reform and various other contingincies, then the tories and Lib Dems will have nothing more to agree on and fall out.
