Yellow-Bellied LibDems Absent for Bedroom ‘Tax’ Debate

Labour and Tory MPs were whipped into staying in London this morning for the tetchy debate on the spare room subsidy currently taking place in parliament. Even the Prime Mentalist has managed to turn up:

Three people in particular are conspicuous by their absence. The Deputy Prime Minister is nowhere to be seen. Neither is Danny Alexander. And what about Steve Webb, who is actually a minister in the department and who has at every previous opportunity stood by the policy the LibDems are now calling the bedroom ‘tax’ in a vain attempt to avoid electoral annihilation. Conveniently, Guido understands, they are up in Scotland…

      Are we surprised?
      Lib Dems cannot be trusted to know their own word – let alone keep it!
      In the past they have known they could say anything they though we wanted to hear; promise everything we asked for, safe in the knowledge they would never have to deliver.
      When they unexpectedly gained some power, the complete impracticality of their promises became apparent and of course they are now paying the price.
      Whilst none of the Parties have anything to be proud of, this bunch really are the bottom of the barrel.
      Any similarities here to UKIP?

      Why not? The LibDims are irrelevant to the electorate but still very relevant to Tory and Labour parties where these unprincipled rent boys can act as ‘kingmakers’.
      No wonder these prostitutes want no leadership debates as even they would be embarrassed by questions about their credibility, what they stand for and future ‘pledges’.

      Lets hope they are hammered in the next GE.

    Well then he’s probably doing some good. I read that militwit was up in scotland yesterday in a place he thought would be full of labour supporters and would hail him as a hero – instead of which he got short shrift and told that because he is such a weak leader most labour supporters in scotland are deciding to vote YES. Got to be tought when even firm scottish labour supporters turn against the labour leader.

      Bill Quango MP says:

      The thing is … and I say this as someone who is well to the right of Cameron, Its a stupid tax. Tax or benefit reduction, or whatever.

      Its quite pointless. Its easy to hate. Its easy to give examples of unfairness. It was a gift for the Guardian and the Toynbee Towers mob. It demonstrates to the wibberal media the ‘callous indifference of the toxic Tories to the poorest or most needy in society.’

      And it saves not much more than bugger all in benefit payments.

      There are so many things wrong with it it should have been abandoned long ago.

      The benefits cap was a winner and forced the progressives to defend £70,000 lifestyles for layabouts.
      This spare room subsidy ..

      just toxic.

      Too late now.

        I agree with you 100%. Somebody with a brain should have worked out
        the propaganda value that this so called tax has given to Labour .
        Likewise the gay marriage fiasco ,there was no need to bring it in . There
        was very little to gain and it has infuriated many core voters .

    A media blackout in action now, race relations and community cohesion and the illusion of multicultural harmony must be protected as all costs.

    An elderly lady is murdered, just another invisible victim and just one of many soon to be forgotten, never mentioned and the cause covered up.

    Little girls r*ped and abused, they dont matter, innocent people murdered, they are of no consequence when set against protecting the illusion of multiculturalism.

    Just another day in the culturally enriched wonderland provided for us by the establishment, and just remember, if you are the wrong colour and religion and race you are and will remain at the bottom of the pile at the end of the list and invisible.

    Down in the South-West, where they’ve got a rash of Lib Dem MPs ( for the time being anyway) yellow-belly may mean cowardly-custard.
    But up here yellow-belly means someone born and bred in Lincolnshire. Our regiment had yellow waistcoats. Calling someone a Lib Dem is fighting talk around here. Which is why we don’t have any of their MPs.

    The term ‘bedroom tax’ is a vicious lie designed to confuse , I know of an elderly lady ,who lives in her own home who was desperately worried about how she would be able to pay it on top of her council tax . I imagine if it can gain a few votes for labour they will just put that down to collateral damage, so long as their underclass, bone idle, feckless moronic voters are protected from having to face economic reality.
