Where are the LibDem balls ?


Why are the
LibDems still playing for a bit part in government. Are they so unsure of their
abilities that they still consider themselves unable to govern. Why are they
setting the conditions on Gordon Brown to change, with the caveat that they then
might consider going into partnership with a Lib/Lab pact.

We the voters don’t
want Gordon to change, we want him and the rest of NuLab out. 

Ming called on
Gordon Brown to end the authoritarian attack on civil liberties, to grasp the
challenge posed by climate change, break open the poverty trap, to trust the
people by devolving power and to ensure that
Britain's foreign policy should not be set in Washington.

He should have
gone further and called for an end to ID cards, and an end to the Databases, he
should have said there would be no Data sharing, and get rid of the spin, the
Special Advisors and the PR consultancies, stop all the IT projects until a
review of each one had taken place and cancel the ones that had no direct
benefit to the voters.  

He should have
said that he would rebuild the NHS by getting rid of the PR firms, administrators
and pen pushers and invest again in doctors and nurses, again making medication
and drugs available to patients and harmonising the hospitals under a Matron
system.

If he had said
that the Police would be asked to police again rather than be target driven box
tickers and exclude them from politics, if he had said that he would take
eduction back to the 3 R’s and ensure that propaganda would never again be
taught in schools. 

If Ming Campbell
had stood up today and said ‘I will do these things’, vote for me and I will do
it, then he would have voters flocking to hear more.

This country has
gone so far down the road towards totalitarianism, with a Tory party that
appears to offer nothing different, for an opposition leader to act boldly,
decisively would be such a shock to
Westminster that this government could not last
beyond the May elections.

If Ming Campbell
could summon up the balls to be that leader, he could be Prime Minister within
months.
