This morning sees the
Liberal Social Democrats for what they really are. A Party that wants to be all things to all people and for many years has managed to get away with the ham acting.
However, now partially in government, partially out, the flip-flops look like they have had their toes nailed to the floor. All they can do now is go round in a circle, and it is becoming an ever decreasing circle with diminishing support.
The latest YouGov survey has them at only 8%. Yes you read that right, just 8%. With the flip-flops unable to function any longer, those LibDem’s who decided that taking the 30 pieces of silver to obtain an office in Whitehall with ministerial pay was more important than their principles are in the process of killing their party entirely.
Even more surprising is that it is over an issue that any classical Liberal will tell you government should not have its fingers into in the first place, but watching the party leadership, Clegg, Cable, Teather and Hughes et al giving their principled and firm decisions of “ah well, perhaps”, “maybe”, “I haven’t decided yet” just makes them look plain stupid.
What was it that someone once said: “LibDems? They couldn’t make a decision even if your kids education depended on it”
I can hardly contain myself….
