'The coalition's days are numbered'

The British papers digest David Cameron's veto - with the Independent calling for the Lib Dems to pull out of the coalition, and the Times celebrating a victory for euroscepticism. We also look at how the Durban agreement went down in the press.

The Independent, always a paper that's backed the Liberal Democrats, reckons this is a step too far now - it's time to walk away from the coalition.

The Times is celebrating though - saying that 57% of voters back David Cameron.

The Guardian says something was achieved in Durban at the weekend - but their environment correspondent says it's a guarantee our children will be worse off than we are.

The Moscow Times asks what's next after this weekend's wave of protests - warning the Kremlin won't listen unless the demonstrators construct a coherent political movement.

And The Daily Beast says Gingrich's remarks on the Palestinians will show whether the Republican base is on the same planet as the rest of us - if he keeps going up, we'll know they're not.
