The Red Flag no longer flies over Downing Street

The Tory flag is Cambridge blue
no longer of the purest hue
It's all because we made a pact
with yellow Lib'ral Democrat
We'll brief against the other side
if you don't like what we decide
so next time they'll lose thoroughly
and give us a majority!

Suggestions for alternate lines welcome :-)

1 BRIGHT 0
2 BORDER 0: BORDER 1: BORDER 4: BORDER 1: BORDER 6: BORDER 2: BORDER 2: BORDER 4: BORDER 1: BORDER 1
3 BRIGHT 1
4 BORDER 0: BORDER 1: BORDER 4: BORDER 1: BORDER 6: BORDER 2: BORDER 2: BORDER 4: BORDER 1: BORDER 1
5 GOTO 1

So the alternative to a Rainbow Coalition is a Spectrum Coalition?
