After the AV referendum count revealed no overall majority, 'Yes' has announced the controversial step of forming a coalition with the 'No', rather than their natural allies, 'Meh'.
A defiant 'Yes', which came third behind 'No' and 'Meh', sought to quell revolt among supporters, saying, "Although many of our supporters might have prefered us to form a coalition with 'Meh', the fact of the matter is, 'Meh' just shrugged and didn't want to enter serious talks with us. Furthermore, the numbers just didn't add up. What would you rather us do? Surely it's better to be in a position to form a stable coalition and have a chance to make a change than to stand on the sidelines or be a part of a ramshackle 'Maybe' alliance of 'Meh', 'Huh?', 'I'll think about it' and 'Whatever' with no moral mandate"
While many have pointed out that 'Yes' and 'No' are diametrically opposed on key issues, often clashing during the campaign, 'Yes' reassured supporters that there was in fact much common ground with 'No', and that this coalition would be a blueprint for a new era in exclusive disjunctions.
'No', however, reminded 'Yes' that the core policies of any No-Yes coalition would still of course be "No" but that 'Yes' was welcome to piss away its credibility to allow 'No' to take power, while bearing the brunt of the blame.
