An interesting aspect of the election is the lack of fear among the public of a hung parliament with a minority or coalition government being the result. Has devolution played a role in this? While Northern Ireland's circumstances has its own pecularities, Scotland has been governed by two Labour/Lib Dem coalitions and now a minority government. While at the last election in Wales resulted in a Labour/Plaid Cmyru coalition. Whatever the policy positions the various governments have adopted, they have not been riven by the crisis that would have been the narrative traditionally painted of them.
