Because it was a good reason to put the not too well off in their place?
Because thats what happened, people like you have no idea what real life is, yeah you have worked 'hard' i whatever field you work in, earning decent money bringing you the lifestyle you want but not everyone is like you, selfish, the tories love people like you, living in a bubble looking down their nose at the lower classes.
You do know that not all people who live in council estates are on the dole, raping the country, most of them are decent, law abiding citizens who want the best for themselves and their families, people like you read the mail and watch bbc and sky news and believe the propaganda they spout, yeah its the poor peoples fault, give it to em.
These tory scumbags might get in for one more term but that will be it, they will do more damage to the proper people of this country but then these people will come to their senses and fvck them off.
Vote Lib Dem. The first major political party to campaign for a straight in/out referendum, then the first to campaign to arbitrarily ignore the result of that referendum when they don’t like the answer.
Lib Dem conference rseolution passed is to revoke article 50 without second referendum.
They are electoral toast.
lt's hard to tally liberal democracy with welcoming Phillip Lee given his views on homosexuality. Still, Lib Dems have found a nice strategy of trying to double their number of MPs b getting MPs elected under other parties manifestos in.
Lib Dems under Swinson just like every other party - want "power" and if principles get in the way...
Absolutely. Titanic deckhand: 'I've an idea, maybe if we rearrange the chairs a bit then everything will change and we'll all be okay.'
It's not just the parties it's the entire system that's absolutely rotten, and always has been. We don't, and never will get to vote for tearing down that particular edifice though.

I find myself agreeing. When genuine change is talked about I think more of the system first. Should we have FPTP or PR, should we have a written constitution, should MP's caught breaking the law and lying be immediately sacked and maybe defecting to another party means a bye election. Should the Lords be abolished for an elected upper tier, thse things are real change. Voting for the libdems isn't a vote for change (well, apart from changing brexit to remain) it's a vote for the status quo, a vote for the party that wants to change nothing but the name of the people in charge.
Jo Swinson said she could never forgive Cameron for allowing an EU referendum, but here she is calling for an in/out referendum in 2008
While here she is saying she would never vote as an MP to implement a leave vote.
Even more than the student loans fiasco, I can't forget the way the Lib Dems filed through the lobby to pass the 2012 Act that opened the way for more private sector penetration into the English NHS. They now seem to be striving to top that,
