The Sunrise coalition is, no doubt, having a disastrous week with four members of the government resigning. The first to resign was minister for prison reform, /u/_KnowYourPlace_, who left the government to join the Conservatives . In a big blow for the Classical Liberals, the next to resign was the Secretary of State for Culture, Communities and Local Government, /u/zygark, who also decided to join the Conservatives. It emerged yesterday that /u/Padanub has resigned as Secretary of State for Defence and the Times this morning reported /u/RhysDallen had resigned as the housing minister whilst giving an interview which will damage the government. Labelling the Chancellor a “bully boy” and accusing him of being arrogant and using vulgar language. If the coalition continues to lose ministers and support, it is uncertain whether they can continue to govern the country.
The Telegraph managed to grab an exclusive interview with /u/Zygark where he gave his honest opinions on the Sunrise coalition and the internal state of the Classical Liberal coalition. Firstly the Telegraph questioned him on the government’s legislative process where he confirmed:
The “Broadcasting Bill” and the “Pass and Road Bill” were not presented to the cabinet before being presented to the commons at large.
This proves the speculation that the Sunrise leadership are very secretive about their plans and padanub had clearly not seen the legislation put forward by a special advisor to the department for culture media and sport, it is important to note that the legislation was not even written or drafted by a member of the cabinet. This no doubt confirms that /u/Padanubs resignation was avoidable had the legislative process been transparent and perhaps been similar to the Blurple government.
Zygark was blunt when asked about the Government’s internal organisation retorting “what structure? Being part of the cabinet felt very disjointed.” He also went on to say there was a “lack of communication between leadership and the rest of the government over decision making” and that “decisions were often made without people being able to voice their opinions.”
He agreed with RhysDallen’s assessment of the Chancellor being a bully describing him “extremely unpleasant to deal with at worst.” and “vague and unhelpful” at best, he then told the Telegraph that he couldn’t “see increased taxes and a £50bn deficit being good for the economy or the average person.“
Finally the interview moved onto Classical Liberal internal affairs where /u/Zygark told us that under /u/Twistednuke the Classical Liberals have shifted leftwards.
The party under [Twistednuke] has definitely moved somewhat leftwards, but I can’t see a large portion of the membership wanting to stay in this coalition for much longer.
This possibly suggests that there are many Classical Liberals members who regret entering the coalition and are disgruntled at the left wing turn the Government and Chancellor are taking, it is entirely plausible that Classical Liberals members bring down the Sunrise government just like they took out the Liberal Alliance. /u/Zygark finally told us that in his view it was time for /u/Twistednuke to resign and he thinks “someone new will really help the party.” It is unclear as to whether the Government and /u/Twistednuke will get through the scathing attacks from /u/Zygark and /u/Rhysdallen, men who have been at the heart of government and key players in the Classical Liberals rise in the recent few months. If the sun sets on Sunrise, it appears that /u/Twistednuke’s time will also be up. The Telegraph will update readers on any more developments.
