Why can't the journalists shut up?

It says little for the press that with the coalition less than twenty-four hours old, commentators have already rushed to pass judgement. Why not shut up and wait and see what happens before passing judgement? It is not as if we have lost a government  of the wise and good. It was obvious as early as 1993 that Labour was always going to be a disaster, though the extent of it surprised me. It is a paradox that conservatives have, historically, often been more effective at delivering overdue radical change than the radicals, and not just in Britain. I have no great expectations but this coalition may, against the odds, deliver a pleasant surprise.
