Clegg Passes Buck for Recall Fudge

No. 10 last night confirmed that the Recall measures mentioned in the Queen’s Speech would mean it is MPs on the Standards Committee and not local voters who will decide whether shamed MPs should be booted out. The reforms will change nothing, MPs are still marking their own homework. 

Zac Goldsmith has been one of the main proponents of a genuine Recall Bill to give power to constituents. He called up Nick Clegg on LBC this morning to let him know what he thought of the government’s impotent proposals. Clegg said it was all the fault of Tory backbenchers:

Clegg says that “Zac and I are completely at one”. Which doesn’t exactly have the ring of truth about it given Zac tweeted this a few months ago:

Wonder what he thinks of Clegg today…

UPDATE: Zac responds.

    If you wanted proof that the establishment parties hold the average voter with complete contempt, then this cop out is it. Also note how they only finally get round to this bit of legislation a matter of months before the next general election having safely ensured that the current lot of MPs will get at least 5 years at the trough.

    I hope the people in Newark will do their duty.

    HARLOW, ESSEX A Muslim doctor took off his shoes and socks and washed his bare feet in a consultation room basin while a stunned patient looked on, a tribunal has heard. The man was ordered to ‘shut up’ when he asked Dr Fazal Haque what he was doing at The Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow, Essex. Staff nurse Malgorzata Campbell found the ‘anxious’ man curled up in a blanket staring at the ceiling when she came to take swabs – then spotted Haque still cleaning his feet in the corner of the room. Haque was later caught with the shift manager’s written record of the event he said he did not want it to go any further and that he had been rushing to wash before sunrise. – See more at: http://courtnewsuk.co.uk/newsgallery/?public_id=37119#sthash.QmxAcmN8.dpuf

    Just so no one forgets what the LibDems stand for

    1. Jeremy Thorpe – Pillow biting
    2. Cyril Smith – Little Boys
    3. Steele recommended Smith for his Knighthood and thinks its ok for Cyril to turn up at Children’s home and beat boys on the bare bottom. It was not (in the 60s) and has never been acceptable behaviour.
    4. Steele and Williams now think Reynard should be re-admitted to the party
    5. Paddy Pants Down
    6. Charles Kennedy – drunk
    7. Mark Oaten – Don’t go there
    8. Lembit Opik – Little Girls
    9. Chris Huhne – Congenital liar and sexual pervert
    10. David Laws – Liar and thief
    11. Lord Reynard – Sexual pervert
    12. Mike Hancock – Sexual pervert
    13. Nick Clegg – Congenital liar, he claimed he hadn’t been told about Smith, Hancock and Reynard
    14. Jo Swinson : The new definition for hypocrisy for all her (lack of) support for the LibDem women during the Reynard affair
    15. Simon Hughes lied about his sexuality in his initial election campaign to defeat Tatchell plus the odd brow envelope
    16. Kingston Councillor Derek Osbourne jailed for 2 year for Child Porn offences
    17. Vince Cable – The new definition for political loyalty
    18. Tim Farron – the LibDems’ Brutus about as trustworthy as a PPI salesman
    19. The LibDems took £2.4 million of stolen money from Michael Brown
    20. Jenny Tongue the anti –Semite
    21. Finally the icing on the cake are the intellectual heavyweights of Lynn Featherstone and Sarah Teather

    Whiffler says:

    The trouble is that there are so many of the “terminally deluded” out there. Clegg’s frequent ploy is to name the person, tell them what they’re asking (not what they’re asking at all), then come up with the line he wanted to say all along.

    e.g. “hello Mister Clegg, what is your position on dangerous dogs?”. “Well Andrew, like many people – myself included – who believe squirrels are quite fluffy, the only way this country will show itself in a positive light is for the EU to … etc etc

    Policies please…

    I would love to take UKIP seriously, but until they propose doing something serious that will get voters’ attention that put more money in people’s pockets and less administration of our money and opinions by the state like:
    + free Childcare,
    + a freeze on immigration, whilst we check the status of everyone who’s here and an audit for whether the country can afford the infrastructure
    + get rid of buy-to-let mortgages to stop landlords building up little empires that they fill with immigrants and students, pushing the price up for families – there’s not a shortage of housing… it’s 3 and 4 bed houses full of students and immigrants, because they give a bigger rental yield and complain less
    + fix the pension system so that there’s more free and cheap financial advice and less dumping onto the landlord market
    + an actual cut in rail fares and bus fare for people to get to work
    + an end to the Licence Fee
    + an end to inheritance tax
    + a real reduction of duty and an end to the trougher’s bar at westminster
    + an actual real income tax cut
    + an end to the balkanisation and onward expansion of benefits
    + some actual privatisation of healthcare that makes it cheaper and more efficient
    + an end to all the “Hate/Thought crime” laws that see people put in prison at great expense merely for hurting someone’s feelings
    + compulsory voting with fewer, fairer constituencies, and real recall, a minimum age for MPs of 40 and retirement age of 70, and a requirement to have lived in the constituency for at least 10 years to get rid of career politicians – and only allow two term MPs to keep the house fresh and well ventilated
    + the list is long… if UKIP can present something that puts a real dent into the problems affecting real people’s lives, then they’ve got a chance …these sort of policies are what the LibLabCon should be doing… but where’s the personal liberty from the LibDems? where’s the worker support from Labour? where’s the patriotism from the Tories? …these parties are dead shells, used for personal enrichment and vanity by these political worms …an earthquake at the the general election is there for the taking if a real opposition for real people gets it’s shit together.

    religion is simply a stage of human evolution used to consolidate an ethnic group into a coherent unit, and establish the beginnings of an administrative bureaucracy – in preliterate societies, information useful for survival of the group is encoded into the sacred texts – “don’t eat pork” is simply because their ancestors had passed on the experience of people tending to fall ill and die from the parasites more prevalent in pork than in other meats.
    You can filter through all these texts and find what is essentially a Ray Mears survival manual but dressed up in lots of frilly fairy story nonsense, and of course based on a very fearful and superstitious understanding of the world and humans’ powerlessness within it.

    the problem now is that, industrialised societies have been through the process of shedding these pre-industrial thought-systems as part of the social and economic and political restructuring that is a byproduct of the industrial revolution… but most of the developing world has just had the stuff of the developed world dropped onto it without having to go through the process of change required to get there… as was once said:

    “America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.”

    This is very analogous with what the developing world has gone through – you have these essentially mediaeval societies in the arab world that have had wealth land on them from nowhere, with no process of economic, social, and political change that happened in the UK over 250 years from the 1700s to now.

    The 10% vote?…….. Well we all know what happens with that system!…….. and democratic IT IS NOT! (and it wouldn’t work in NI anyway….. it might cause new uprisings….)

    So do we go for a higher level of local protest?……… like 30%?………. Well we don’t even get that sort of turnout for local elections!…… so the scally would have more than a chance of getting away scot-free!

    So do we leave it to a Parliamentary vote?……. which might work…… unless the government majority happens to be wafer thin…….. and then all sorts of issues crop up. Do you allow a free vote, or have a three line whip?… Imagine the screams for “natural justice” in such a case!

    Give it to the Lords?……. OH NO!

    Journalists taking this line are only showing themselves up as throwbacks who can only see women as sex objects. The sort of knuckle draggers who want to fight other men for talking to their wives.

    They are going to look stupid if they have lost.

    And even if they win, talk about desperate. They won’t be able to do this everywhere in 2015.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
