Makes an assumption about the largest opposition party, and it doesn't
need to be a 'you get kicked out entirely' - a 'your majority is down to
double figures' would probably do, when coupled with a memory of the
trials of the Major government.

*Especially* if a majority depends on known troublemakers like George
Galloway, John McAllion et al.

Getting your legislative programme through could be fun and interesting...

 become mere sounds, their etymology being
 buried, like so many of the earth's marvels,
 beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie
