Text size Aa Aa

Britain’s new leader has been chairing the first meeting of his historic coalition cabinet.

Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron’s newly-appointed deputy Nick Clegg was, of course, invited alongside four other centrist Liberal Democrats with top jobs.

Yesterday, Cameron and Clegg set out their power-sharing plans, calling it “new politics.”
