LONDON - Britain's new leaders appear to have hit it off. Commentators yesterday said their first appearance together was more a civil partnership than the launch of a coalition.
But the country's newspapers warned Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron and his Liberal Democrat deputy Nick Clegg that their happy marriage would be severely tested by tough times ahead.
To the astonishment of seasoned observers more used to politicians trading blows than compliments, the pair strode side-by-side on Wednesday into the Downing Street garden for a well-humoured joint press conference.
"After a whirlwind romance, the big day," said the Guardian daily of the event that launched Britain's first coalition government since the Second World War.
The Sun said: "It was the quickest marriage in political history and the nation was asked to bless it."
Front pages were filled with photos of the political union. The Guardiancalled them "The Happy Couple at Number 10", the Daily Mail hailed "The Great No 10 Love-In", while The Express declared simply: "It's Love."
The Conservatives came first in the May 6 general election, but were just short of the number of seats needed to govern so they turned to Clegg's party to give them the extra seats needed to form a government. - Sapa-AFP
