It is politics and the Lib Dem’s are trying to take the moral high ground but the voting public will not ware it and the truth will come out that in these dire economic times the real wreckers of the coalition are the Lib Dem’s who have been proven to be entirely self-serving hypocrite!
Right from the start of the Coalition Agreement the Lib Dem’s have been the wreckers, at both their party conferences virtually every speaker attacked their Conservative colleagues, Vince Cable attacks the Conservative Party at every turn, even after scrutinising the NHS Reform bill and signing it off Nick Clegg and his merry band tried to scupper it, weakening it in the process, politics is dirty but with friends like the Lib Dem’s who needs enemies
It is the Conservative Party who took the Lib Dem’s into the coalition, for no gain in politics terms, and proceeded to deliver on every policy agreed within the agreement and much much more, over 65% of the Lib Dem manifesto has or is being implemented. A lot of the policies concerned such as Green Policy, Europe, Taxation, Employment Bureaucracy and Human Rights are some of the biggest brakes on our economic recovery but the Lib Dem’s know that current politics demands that Cameron now needs the coalition and as such needs the Lib Dem’s because a general election now would probably result in a hung parliament and a Labour/Lib Dem coalition who would bring in PR and scupper any hopes of the Conservatives being in government again.
But for Clegg to say the Conservatives have not supported the coalition is nonsense all the way through the life of the coalition and at their 2 party conferences the Conservatives have never attacked the Lib Dem’s, often altering Conservative policy to help Clegg keep control of his party and always talking about their coalition partners.
Now to the point in hand, Lords reform and Nick Clegg/Simon Hughes claim that its implementation is tied to boundary changes, again they are fibbing, the coalition agreement said ‘We will bring forward a Referendum Bill on electoral reform, which includes provision for the introduction of the alternative Vote in the event of a positive result in the referendum, as well as for the creation of fewer and more equal sized constituencies’ on Lords reform the coalition agreement bound the Conservatives only to set up a committee to suggest changes, which was done, so it is the Lib Dem’s who are picking and choosing miss-leading the electorate in the process.
The Lib Dem stance is cynical, childish and typical of a party that holds the electorate in total contempt, to try to twist the truth for political gain and put the coalition in dire danger just when they should be showing a united front to the world and tackling our many problems is beyond any form of contempt and shows the Lib Dem Party as totally unfit for government, at any level.
Sooner or later the Lib Dem’s will have to face the electorate and with any luck the electorate will treat them with the same contempt and wipe them out.
