TYPICAL. A new Government has just come into power and I am already talking about what the next one could look like.

Yes, it is true that details of what policies Boris Johnson’s administration will pursue are pretty thin on the ground, besides “we’re leaving by Halloween, deal or no deal”.

Of course, the Government has spent £2.1 billion on preparation for a no deal exit, so you can see which one of those is more likely.

But look at Mr Johnson’s Cabinet and you get a pretty good idea of what the next weeks, months, and possibly years will look like, depending on how long he can cling to power.

This is one of the most right-wing, free market-worshipping governments in a long time.

The fact Priti Patel, Dominic Raab, Liz Truss, and Kwasi Kwarteng, all firmly on the right of the Conservatives, are in Government shows this.

After all, those four MPs co-wrote “Britannia Unchained”, a book suggesting most employment laws should be abolished because British workers are too lazy.

Make of that what you will.

Now, Mr Johnson’s Government having a vision is all well and good, but there is quite a high chance it will not last too long.

The Conservative loss in the Brecon by-election on Thursday has reduced Mr Johnson’s majority in Parliament to one.

And that is with his party’s alliance with the Democratic Unionist Party, which is also looking shaky.

If Mr Johnson cannot secure a Brexit deal without the possibility of a border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, then do not expect Arlene Foster to keep supporting him.

But he is between a rock and a hard place, because a no deal Brexit could well annoy Remain-supporting Conservatives.

It is hard to know how far they are willing to go to prevent a no deal exit, whether it is voting for no confidence in the Government or even leaving their party.

Not to mention the fact that a badly done Brexit could lead to a no confidence vote in the Government anyway.

But it will be interesting to see what risks Mr Johnson will take.

He has a lot of spinning plates to balance, and just a few of them falling could bring down his entire Government.

The Prime Minister has vehemently denied the possibility of partnering with Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, despite Donald Trump’s persistence.

But a time may come where he has no choice, especially in an election.

Mr Farage’s party may have performed poorly in the Brecon by-election, but they’re bound to win a few seats across the country if they focus on their strongholds enough.

At least in our current situation, it is clear the next Government will have to be a coalition, barring a massive Jeremy Corbyn surge.

This time he won’t have the advantage of Glastonbury during the election campaign, mind.

A Johnson-Farage pact is foreseeable if the Brexit Party is successful enough, though there will certainly be a few outspoken Tories.

The current Cabinet meshes well with Mr Farage’s free market ideas, plus they certainly have common ground on immigration... namely not liking it.

But a Conservative wipeout, which could well happen if Brexit turns out to be a disaster, may lead to Labour having a crack at governing the country.

It is such a divided party that a minority government would not last long.

Politically, Labour’s perfect coalition partner would be the Greens or Plaid Cymru, but unless any more friends join Caroline Lucas in Parliament that will not be realistic.

Perhaps a Labour-Scottish National Party coalition would work, provided Mr Corbyn promised a second referendum on both Brexit and Scottish independence.

But how well that would go down with Labour voters remains to be seen.

The Lib Dems have promised not to ally with Labour as long as Mr Corbyn remains leader.

But it is not like they have been ones to keep a promise when it comes to getting power.

You can sense a bit of a theme here.

What this article really shows is our political future is wide open, for better or for worse.

But when an election comes, backroom deals between parties will matter as much, if not more, than canvassing and campaigning.

Alliances will be struck and backs stabbed.

The small parties are now the king makers, holding a lot of power over Mr Johnson and Mr Corbyn.

There is always the possibility of Brexit going wonderfully with no disagreement.

But I would not put my money on it.
