Politics and coalitions just do not provide democratic, representative government, here we have Nick Clegg with a miniscule mandate acting as if he was the government but let us analyse the main Lib Dem policies and then maybe we can understand the man who thinks of himself as a main stream politician.
A selection of Lib Dem policies:
There is not one policy there that is anywhere near mainstream Briton, is it any wonder the Lib Dem’s never get anywhere near a national mandate but of course they don’t want a national mandate, the Lib Dem’s want Proportional Representation (PR) which would guaranty a coalition and guaranty the Lib Dem’s permanent power.Further reading
PR can be made to look super democratic but it is a mirage behind which the Lib Dem’s hide, as we have now, the Lib Dem’s with a miniscule mandate weald the stick in government because without them the government will fall, so they use the national interest argument to push their crackpot and mainly unaffordable policies knowing that they don’t have to worry about main stream public opinion because with a coalition they are guaranteed power, power politics without accountability!
So let us now look at Nick Clegg’s ideas on the European Union (EU), he is saying that we must not distance ourselves from the inner core of the EU and that Great Britain could not survive outside the EU, I would put forward that to survive and move forward as a great and innovative nation we must leave the EU, if we stay and accept further integration we will disappear into a region of the EU and almost certainly lose our pre-eminence as the worlds major centre for financial services along with many other successful areas, and bye the bye, the regions of the EU are already drawn.
Both the Lib Dem’s and the Labour are basically anti-British, Labour spent most of their administration rubbishing our great history, traditions and achievements, the Lib Dem’s are certainly in the same vein but it should be remembered that we, as a nation, invented the computer, built the first Jet Airliner, built Concorde, don’t forget the Harrier Jump Jet which was a world leader and of course the aborted projects like the TR2 cancelled by a Labour government just before completion!
Nick Clegg seems to think, wish for, that if we left the EU we would flounder losing thousands of jobs but this is intrinsically wrong, just look at what we would gain
