    The two minutes that I listened to he was complaining about the government. Doesn’t seem to understand that he is part and parcel of it. A year from now I shall battle to remember what his name was.

    In regard to captains etc comments of the day etc previously made

    Please note the following
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Navy_officer_rank_insignia
    You can find it elsewhere as well. The merchant navy have technically do not have a rank of captain only the Royal Navy. A merchant navy captain is called a master but also through later convention now also referred to as a captain.
    Please can people get your facts right before posting on something you really do not know much about. These are the facts and as such can be shown via multiple sources. A commander is a rank below captain and as such subordinate to the captains rank. A commodore is a rank above. All these ranks can command a ship.

    The word ‘Conservative’ is conspicuous by its absence…No surprise there; the unprincipled lot will be eager to cuddle up with Labour – that’s if there are any LibDem MPs left in the House, of course. Clegg can’t cling on to the power he is currently abusing if the electorate remove his handles…

    Clegg has become a pragmatist, all he needs to do now is to stage his own little Night of the Long Knives, and dump the arsewipes like Uncle Vince.
    Oh, lets not forget that arch fence sitter and AC/DC MP, Hughes, Simon.

    If I have understood correctly the Lib Dems want us to vote for them and they will improve things by:

    1. Taxing plastic bags

    2. Giving free school meals to infants

    3. Reducing the costs of school uniforms

    OMG!

      Clear thinking but full lugholes says:

      No, you obviously were not listening. The key point of that speech was his pride in obstructing the necessary electoral boundary changes – because Dave could/would not deliver on HoL reform. Clegg conveniently forgot that he was granted his AV vote (and lost comprehensively), so this really was just a rerun of how to throw all my toys out the playpen and go and suck lemons for the next 20 years.

    Clegg said the worst election result would be a majority Conservative or Labour government. Yeah quite but only because it would make the lib dummies totally irrelevant. All Clegg and these muesli munchers want is a few seats to Weald the power as no one else wants hence they got only a few seats. I truly hope next time they tell the limp dicks to piss off and do their worst and govern as a minority.

      Clegg is wrong in some ways, but subtly right in others.

      From his point of view, it would be worst if a UKIP + Con or Lab coalition emerged.

      On the other hand he is quite right that a non-coalition government would be the worst outcome as neither the Tories not Labour are particularly stable at present.

        Clegg believes in homœopathy, not democracy says:

        Tories ? What Tories ? There’s a bunch of clowns pretending to be Tories, certainly, but it’s a pretty unconvincing act.
        As for stability, yes, they’re all as unbalanced as Clegg’s lot – downright unhinged, in fact.

      The only time I met Simon Hughes -in the early 1980s- I was impressed, but in a negative way, by what a mendacious opportunist he was.

      So, he’s not changed, then, in all those years. Consistent, if nowt else.

    I am here to tell you today to give me more of your money, so i can give you stuff to some people I like during the austerity, rather than Cameron giving it to some people he likes; it doesn’t matter if you don’t have children, or you don’t want your kiddies to have a free lunch because eating at home is much nicer and family friendly, gimme the dosh, and we will make them eat it, while watch King and King on DVD.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
