WATCH: LibDem Minister Says Party Has Lost ‘Humanity’ in Power

Less than two hours after the polls closed, Lynne Featherstone was already going violently off message:

A Liberal Democrat government minister says that the Liberal Democrats have lost their humanity because they joined the government. Well she better go to save her soul, right?

          What she is saying is that it is much easier to talk crap from the sidelines and criticize everything the government does, than to actually be responsible for something. The LibDems are neither Liberal nor Democratic, it remains the party for people who like to have sex with the most vulnerable members of society.

    So UKIP have done it then!

    No results yet (there are now) but, if Labour are conceding, we know the game is up.

    Many of us have known this for some time now. But the media had to play their little games. We get to see how they still hunt in packs and are fearful of standing out from the crowd just in case they get it wrong.

    UKIP have less than a year to put a case to us that they can form a government. If that does happen, then we will find ourselves politically in bed with some people who are not like us, on first blush.

    But we have been dictated to by the political classes for far too long. You don’t have to be either rich or poor to understand what decency is.

    If I am rubbing shoulders with former Labour voters who want a better way of conducting our political business, then I shall be delighted to be with them.

    I would say the same thing about the LibDems if there was any prospect of them wanting the same, but I doubt it. Let me be proved wrong and I will be very happy!

    For now, it remains a distinct possibility that the historic rout this year can be followed by another rout in 2015. Roll on the day!

    To say the British public were duped in the election run-up was something of an understatement.
    The British Establishment Press announced that 4000 LESS Rumanians had arrived in 2014 when the actual figure around 50,000 (MORE). The problem is the timing on the release of the “statistics” and the immediate “general” acceptance that Immigration was no longer (ha ha) a problem.
    Despite the more intelligent thinkers (most of them here) realising that it was a propaganda “con”, it is somehow deeply disturbing how the parties with something to gain from continued, uncontrolled immigration latched on to that single piece of news and started to use it as hard and proven fact.

Look at any voting map, anywhe in the world and there will be pockets of support for different parties in different areas. Never have I seen a map that has blanket support for one party across the whole country. Today’s story is the massive gains by UKIP throughout a range of local authorities up and down the country.

    British Citizens are being holed up in hotel rooms in Thailand against their will and all this Government does is go around with its fingers up its arse.

    This would never have happened in the 1980s.

    The Lib Dems problem is that they can’t be all things to all men once they’re in government and have to make some real decisions.

    Dave’s response to the UKIP elections (for that is what it is):

    “I get it”

    what he went on to say was “the Gaurdian every morning to see if the lefties love me yet”

    Oh for f¥ck's sake says:

    The latest line on Radio 4 now is that the UKIP gains are because of disaffected voters turning away from liblabcon….that may be so….but what the BBC is failing to point out is that the reason voters are disaffected is because liblabcon policies do not reflect the views of the general public, whilst UKIP’s do. The public are pissed off with the levels of immigration and because they want out of EU. UKIP is the only party that offers these policies to the voting public and that is why they have voted for them….Just brush that under the carpet eh Auntie – ‘The children are just having a bit of a tantrum’. No – They want their country back you patronising fucks!

    Lib/Dims aint a party of protest they’re another leftie/marxoid movement proper classical Liberalism disappeared a long time ago. The days of Gladstone and Lloyd George are now long-gone. And they are bloody weird people! Ukip are not a party of ‘protest’ they’re an actual opposition movement purveying popular opinions it isn’t protest it’s democracy.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
