Clegg Stars in Both Tory and LibDem Election Broadcasts

Interesting Party Election Broadcasts last night, the Tories were fear-mongering that coalition government would be all about backroom deals and horse-trading. This is of course what is conventionally known as ‘politics’.  In the Tory broadcast a Clegg-like actor walked around Westminster offering dithering.  Apparently if you vote Conservative you will get a decisive liberal-conservative government firmly rooted on the centre-ground of politics.  If you vote Liberal on the other hand you could end up with a dithering liberal-centrist coalition government.

In the real LibDem PEB we had Clegg walking around Westminster offering change from the old politics, his first promise was an offer of “tax freedom”, a tax cut worth £700 to every taxpayer. Now 10 points higher than where they were when they started the campaign, the LibDems think their most attractive manifesto offer is a tax cut.

Tax cuts, the Cameroons told us, were the old politics that didn’t work with voters.  All the Tories needed to do was to offer Obama-style “change” from Gordon Brown. In the words of Sarah Palin: How’s that hopey change thing working out for y’all?

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
