    So I watched in total disbelief yesterday morning...

    Miliband Urges Lib Dems to Abandon Cameron, Work With Labour - BusinessWeek

    As I said earlier today anyone who works with Labour was not a Liberal in the first place and good riddance to them!! Liberal values are directly opposed to the leftist statists. Now I can understand why some Liberals might think that Social Liberalism is akin to Socialism; it's not. They, admittedly, on the surface look similar, but they are about as similar as the measles and meningitis.

    On the same day there is the announcement of cuts to local government. I'm unemployed at the moment, and get bemused looks from the staff at the DWP when I ask them when the work parties are scheduled to begin. It seems that IDS is dragging his heels. Surely a great way to offset the welfare bill, cuts to local government, and to stop people moaning about benefit claimants is to get us all out doing something for 30hrs a week. How hard can it be for the DWP to seconde claimants to local government; NVQs all round.
     
  2. Mr Ed wants to put his own house in order, like sorting out the internal squabbling in the Labour Party..... and tell the likes of Hattie Harperson to 'button it!'..... before telling disgruntled Limp-Ducks to defect to the Liarbor Party..... That really would be like pishing in a gale... and sh*tting in your own breaks all at the same time....

    "Those who live in glass houses......... blah, blah...!"

    Book of Proverbs. 20:26

    "A wise king winnows out the wicked; he drives the threshing wheel over them".
    (NIV)

    Pr.18:2

    "A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his/her own opinions". (NIV) (One for Hattie....??)

    I'm looking forward to watching the Labour Party over the coming months/years...they're just so last season(/century)...
     
  4. Anything to get back in power and if there is one thing labour is an expert on its lying to get votes, taught by their grandmaster Bliar.

    The way they're going on you'd think that the Con-Dems had been in power for the last 13 years!!
     
  6. 'Tis all Maggie Thatchers fault.... It was 'er wot told us to do it...

    Now for the first 2 years of Liarbor's administration, they apparently continued with the economic policies set in place by the Major administration. Two years in, after much rowing behinds the scenes, Pa Broone had bullied B'Liar enough so he could get his own way. The Great Economic Guru, Doc Gordy McBalloon then set about applying Socialist/Marxist bullsh*te to the equation.... and the rest is History..

    The way they're going on you'd think that the Con-Dems had been in power for the last 13 years!!
    Yes it is a tad strange that they are being very coy over the Blair and Brown years....

    Mr Ed has his hands full. He is not quite up to the mark to pull the various heaving factions of crud merchants together. Maybe Mr Ed thinks that he can 'Divide and Rule' the Coalition. He really wants to keep a beady eye on the Marxist left of the party, as some of those are actively working to try and unseat Mr Ed. (Hopefully -- "Those whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad...")
     
  7. Think Labour are struggling to find a soundbite that fits them. Targetting the Liberal Democrats at this difficult time especially after the Student Loan vote is good PR by the spin doctors. The media announcing the decline in popularity of Nick Clegg, due to the current crop of surveys only adds to the illusion that there is a possible split in the party, which Labour hope to benefit from.

    That would seem to be the approach...I wonder who they think is dumb enough to buy it?

    They will pick up some. In a way I suppose it is like the Anglicans being encouraged by the Vatican to 'move across'. :)

    If only you were THAT honest in Parliament or on TV!
     
  13. I can't abide listening to the fat tongued fcukwit.
    I've said elsewhere that I believe the whole current ruck in the streets is a smoke screen for this very reason. Labour want the end of the coalition at all costs and I firmly believe that they and their unison bed mates are orchestrating the current events and playing them up. I don’t think we have seen the last of violence on the streets. If they can’t get their own way democratically then it’s revert to normal Marxism tactics.
    I think the party are still smarting after being told to do one by the Limp dems immediately after the election when they thought they could swing into government again.
     
  14. Certainly think this is one of the most difficult decisions each Liberal Democrat MP has had to face. Although I think there will be many more in the years to come. Voting with your conscience and the understanding of your coalition partner has so far been the order of the day. For some resignation has become the only answer and I respect those party members who have not been able to co-exist with the compromises and failed election pledge. Each has to follow his/her path.

    I do feel that the LibDems are being honest with themselves and with the public, how much respect they will eventually achieve because of this only time will tell. Damage has been done and the students that voted for them have every right to feel unjustly cheated. But in the political world promises are broken, changed, delayed substantially so they don't happen during the term of office, unfortunately it's a fact of life. In this respect we have two directly opposing parties working together to find the best solution to our financial problems, run our country and still keep the voters of both parties happy - a mammoth task.

    Labour are completely redundant with their arguments and I believe at a loss to know how to impact on the political stage. So far cracks in the coalition are not appearing in any substantive form, a high percentage of people who voted for these two parties seem to be realistic in their expectations from this government.
