Deep cracks are emerging in Britain's coalition government, with one of its top officials lashing out at Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday for deciding to block European Union treaty changes designed to save the euro.
"At one level it's very unfortunate for David Cameron, the timing of all of this," said Steven Fielding, director of the Center for British Politics at the University of Nottingham. "This could have happened at any point in the last 10 years, that the prime minister of the day could get caught in a close embrace with Rupert Murdoch — they've all been in a close embrace with Rupert Murdoch."
But Mr. Fielding said that "however embarrassed and humiliated" the Liberal Democrats may feel by the direction of the government, they left themselves "no alternative" but to go along with it by agreeing to form the coalition after finishing third in the last national election.
