Politicians are often baffling but few more so than Liberal leader Nick Clegg. Before last year's General Election he went on TV and made some astonishing statements (see below). He also, now famously, promised not to raise University fees. This gained him lots and lots of votes. To the young he came across as one of the 'good guys' in politics.
How he did not realise that reneging on this promise, in the spectacular way he did by legislating for the tripling of fees, would not destroy his party, is nothing short of amazing.
Last night's losses were predictable (and pleasing).
When trust is broken, it is gone. There is a whole generation of young people who will never dream of voting Liberal again.
Unfortunately for them there is no one else in the field worth voting for either.
People are looking for a real alternative to the banker-owned, phony (left/right) divided, phony democratic, one-party state we now endure.
Many are working on creating a real alternative. Something will emerge. Let's hope it will arrive sooner rather than later.
Previous post on Clegg is below:
On the Andrew Marr Show this morning Nick Clegg says that Britain should make itself a safe haven for persecuted homosexuals around the world.
Marr said, "That's a lot of people. What about those who say that we are already an overcrowded island and we don't have the room?"
"This is true in London and the South East but not elsewhere. There is a shortage of fruit pickers in Lincolnshire, for example...."
Is it Liberal policy to flood Lincolnshire with African homosexuals, one might fairly ask.
This great idea would surely work wonders for Liberals standing for parliament in Spalding and Grantham, say.
Good luck with that one Nick! Sounds like a winner.
He then said that "We need policies like this to make Britain the integrated diverse society I want it to be."
If Clegg thinks that the politics of 'Diversity' produces 'integrity he is either a fool or a fiend.
'Diversity' (as is obvious to anyone with their eyes and mind wide open) is about 'divide and rule', artificially created alienation and conditioned helplessness for society at large. Its purpose is to make us compliant to the diktats of an increasingly tyrannical (and globalist)government.
