Labour to push for vote to repeal Bedroom Tax 17 December 2014 | By Emily Twinch Labour is hoping to push through a vote on repealing the Bedroom Tax in an opposition day debate today. This is another battle in the party’s on-going opposition to the controversial policy. Shadow work and pensions secretary Rachel Reeves pledged to call a parliamentary vote to scrap the Bedroom Tax - calling Lib Dems to join her party - in September. Leader of the Labour Party Ed Miliband has already committed to scrapping the controversial policy, also called the under-occupancy charge, in September last year, if Labour win’s next year’s General Election. Labour has accused the Lib Dems of hypocrisy over its stance on the Bedroom Tax, after members initially voted to review the tax in their autumn conference in 2013. In the summer this year Prime Minister Nick Clegg then appeared to weakened his party’s stance by saying it could not support the policy in its current form and wanted an exemption for disabled people ...

just been watching the news and the government have announced £15 billion of road improvements in England including a road tunnel under Stonehenge. There will have to be further cuts to pay for this.. Nick Clegg stated that different political parties have different ideas on how to raise the funds through savings from other area's and this is what I heard him state "George Osborne thinks that the working age poor should fund these projects and the Lib Dems think that some of the better off should be helping towards funding these projects" No mention of Labour, Ukip or anyone else. I guarantee MORE SCOTTISH MONEY TO FUND THESE ENGLISH PROJECTS! Scotland needs to take it's INDEPENDENCE and sooner rather than later. Question: if people in work are classed by the tories as working age poor, then where the *** will they get £15 billion of savings from? - more austerity and more benefits cuts to the working age poor and disabled people, that's where he will make his £15 billion of savings.

Lib Dems & Nick Clegg in a word DELUSIONAL it appears that after today's speech we will not see Clegg mania like last year but we will understand what a great job he has done in supporting the poor and keeping the Tories in line Well I must have been in a nightmare for the last 4 years , as Clegg failed to honour the student fees, failed to stop or water down ANY of the attacks that the Tories have made on the disabled the most vulnerable the people Cameron promised in his Conference speech (2010) to support so nick Clegg if you do hold the balance or power after May 2015 why should I trust you? what will you do different? why not let them rule in a minority and keep your snouts out of the trough? I for one would never vote for you or trust you, just saying,
{Issue today @ BE. After Cable named the blue tories liers, his boss imitate them} Nick Clegg will today set out details of his plan to increase the personal tax allowance by £2,000 and could promise a tax cut in the first year of the next Parliament. The Deputy Prime Minister has pledged that the Lib Dems would raise the threshold at which people begin paying income tax from £10,500 to £12,500. The Sun reports that Mr Clegg will say he would raise the allowance by £500 by April 2016, at a cost of approximately £1.5bn per year.
Vince Cable In what is becoming a tradition at the annual Lib Dem conference Vince Cable has an almighty go at the Tories. He claims they are obsessed by cuts and are driven by a desire to destroy the welfare state. Not much wrong so far, but if this is how Mr Cable feels and therefore we assume a sizable number of other Lib Dems why have we been in coalition with them? I can hear Nick Clegg replying that if we weren’t imagine the horror they would have caused. Of course this forgets that without the Lib Dems the Tories couldn’t get through any of their legislation. We cannot escape this fact no matter how much we might want to. Can we be forgiven? Maybe but it will take a very long time and we will have to make sure our actions start to match our words. Pushing for Federalism and nothing less of the Smith Commission would be an ideal start.
Nick Clegg has spent this morning touring the TV and radio studios asking people to judge him by his record. We agree. This is the Lib Dems' record. They broke their promises. They promised to scrap tuition fees and then trebled them. They promised not to increase VAT, warned against a "Tory VAT bombshell", but then voted through a VAT rise on everyday working families. They promised a fair tax system with the wealthiest paying more, but they cut taxes for millionaires while most families are worse off. They promised to be on the side of working people, but working people are £1,600 a year worse off since the Lib Dems joined the Tories in government. They backed the Tories all the way. Nick Clegg backed the Tories' in taking the NHS backwards. Thanks to them it's harder to see your GP, waiting lists are going up and £3 billion was been wasted on top-down reorganisation of the NHS. The Tories couldn't have done it without the Lib Dems. They've supported David Cameron in failing to stand up to the energy ...

Weak response from my local MP! Good afternoon, I am writing as you have previously contacted me with regards to the situation in Gaza. I have received a great number of emails about this and I would like to provide you with an update. I full appreciate the concerns raised about the ground assault on Gaza. As I have said repeatedly, there are no winners in this conflict. Both Hamas and the Israeli Government have perpetuated this conflict through aggressive attacks and the killing on both sides of this conflict must stop. I have recently written to Philip Hammond on this issue, but today have also contacted the Prime Minister to raise continuing concerns. Please find attached a copy of my letter for your reference, and I will of course get back to you as soon as I receive a reply. In the past week the leader of the Lib Dems, Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister has publically condemned Israel’s actions. He has recently stated that: “It is amounting now to a disproportionate form of collective punishment. ...

This knife crime law won't work After the killing of Ann Maguire, we must resist headline-grabbing but self-defeating solutions.

Photograph: Joe Giddens/PA I have always believed that the key to reducing crime is to focus on what works. It may sound obvious, but politicians can easily end up chasing headlines, trying to sound tough but actually making the situation worse. Instead of this, we need to focus on firm, practical solutions that address the root causes of crime and stop people offending in the first place. The continuing fall in crime is one of the biggest success stories of this coalition. Many people predicted that in tough econo ...

We can criticise the nature of the economy's recovery and our nation's dizzying levels of inequality until the cows come home. But, bizarrely, Cameron seems to be sitting prettyI'm not quite sure what David Cameron is up to. But whatever it is, it seems to be working for him. Of the three main parties, only the Conservatives seem happy with their leader. Labour continually worries that Ed Miliband is "weird". The Lib Dems wish they'd never heard the name Nick Clegg. All Cameron has to do is sit back and let them fret about an upcoming General Election that they are clearly dreading already, and leave that to tell its own sorry story. Still, the fact remains, even with the left-of-centre vote divided between Labour and the Lib Dems, the Conservatives couldn't achieve a parliamentary majority. Now, in theory at least, the left-of-centre vote is less divided than it has been since Labour's 1997 landslide, and the right-of-centre vote is divided instead although Ukip is attracting Labour and Lib Dem voters to ...

Liberal Democrats : Read Philip Collins in The Times today p27. Apart from the gratuitous abuse "Oakeshott has been in three parties and a misery-guts troublemaker in every one" the theme is "There is an important force in four-party politics and its name is the Liberal Democrats" ...with prospect "to be considered a natural party of government." "The protest vote has gone but Nick Clegg's party can still hold the balance of power. Ditching him would be suicidal." (Removing Clegg) "would be a disastrous strategic choice made in the dubious hope of tactical gain." "It will take years of impotence..to restore the protest vote." "If there was one person in the Lib Dems who ought not to be blamed for the tuition fees fiasco it is Mr Clegg. Time and again he tried to make his party see sense and every time they frivoulously defied him." Collins concludes "It's time to see what stuff you're made of. There is a year to go before the fight of your lives. Time to shut up and calm down."

Does his apology mean his position in the lords is no longer tenable? Can Nick Clegg afford to lose another big hitter?
Following the local election results last week we've crunched the numbers and they look pretty good. As you can see, since the General Election in 2010 we've seen a significant increase in our support right across Sheffield Hallam.

"Lord Oakeshott says he is quitting the Lib Dems and warns the party is heading for "disaster" if it sticks with Nick Clegg as leader." Oakshot's statement is an understatement. The Lib Dem's aren't heading for disaster, they are IN disaster. Clegg should go. After the debacle on Sunday Lib Dems have retained only one seat in the Council elections. Even the Green Party bested them in many seats. He will almost certainly lose his own seat in the next General Election, thus forcing the issue.
According to the Standard, Nick Clegg says the Lib Dems are, "like a big family." Presumably because all their voters can now fit in one house?
Well this made me laugh - "Lord Oakeshott has quit the Lib Dems with a warning the party is "heading for disaster" under Nick Clegg." 'Heading for disaster'? Surely they've already arrived!
I don't agree with Nigel on much, but on the subject of Nick not being party leader of the by the next election i cannot agree more. What seemed like a low level rebellion from party members after the European and local elections is now obviously a full scale mutiny. Lord Oakeshott obviously set about getting those damaging polls with Nick Clegg's future in mind and i can't believe he didn't have help from within and i also can't believe Vince Cable is not part of this either. I wouldn't be surprised if Nick Clegg is gone as leader by the end of this week, maybe next and then what? The Lib Dems will then have to quickly choose a leader - maybe Danny Alexander, or Tim Farron, or maybe Vince Cable (although he's damaged goods at this point) and they will limp to the next election hoping to keep a few seats in traditionally strong areas and then be potential power brokers again in an hung parliament. Tony Blair is kind of right in why the Lib Dems have been battered at the polls but i think its simpler than ...

It’s only now with the very real threat of many losing their seats at the next election and in the case of the Conservatives and Labour with neither predicted to be able to have an overall majority that they are finally sitting up and taking notice and hurriedly trying to cobble up some tempting offers for next time. The Lib Dem fiasco increases with the resignation of a prominent member of the House of Lords after it has been revealed that he commissioned three opinion polls to try and get rid of Nick Clegg with a parting shot that Vince Cable knew all about it, my word aren’t the knives coming out now.

There's a strong case for staying in the - probably reformed - EU but because many people don't get that - in part because Labour has failed to make the case for it - and feel they have not had a say on membership maybe there is a case for Cameron's Hokey Cokey referendum. Clarke thinks .. (and R4 suggest polling backs him up on this) that many EU membership supporters did not vote at all last week. They certainly did not vote in any great numbers for the most pro EU party of all, the Lib Dems. I think .. Getting rid of Nick Clegg will have little impact on the 2015 General Election ( ...
Farage: UKIP has 'momentum' and is targeting more victories Nigel Farage: "It is an earthquake in British politics" The UK Independence Party is a truly national force and has "momentum" behind it, Nigel Farage has said after its victory in the European elections.

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has said he will not resign after his party lost all but one of its 12 MEPs. He said he was not going to "walk away" from the job despite the poor results.

Paddy Ashdown's support for Nick Clegg was based on the defence that he is the best leader we have never realised. And then this evening he was defended by Danny Alexander who was frankly clueless. When challenged about how the leadership can turn things round for the Lib Dems all he could offer was platitudes. Oh why did they choose him? I heard people say. Because this is the man that Nick has promoted into every top position in government and the party that he can. Doesn't that say something about his leadership? And surely Nick must have discussed with Danny about what to do after these results? If so then if Danny can't remember what he said maybe he is clueless as well?

I did say Nick Clegg choosing to jump into bed with the Tories would destroy the Lib Dem Party (He has to go surely?). Thing is, If Labour don't get a majority come the next General Election ~ what party other than the Lib Dems can they form a co~alition with? Worrying times ahead with UKIP being on the political scene. We now have more N.O.C councils thanks to dissaffected Tory voters and racists voting for UKIP which will ultimately result in ineffective local government. It is a sad day to be British indeed!
Nick Clegg's position is safe. Pretty soon there won't be any Lib Dems left to stand against him
With half the votes cast in the EU elections, the nutters on the fringe seem to be doing rather well abroad. Whilst over here, Nick Clegg's Lib Dems have a total of zero seats, with half the constituencies yet to declare. I don't think he'll be a particularly happy bunny.
Lib Dems still searching for their first MEP. Expect Nick Clegg to face a challenge next month.
Lib Dems will lose all their MEP seats tonight to UKIP. Thank heaven Cameron finished off Nick Clegg's crazy plan for PR. Based on 17% on vote they would wipe out Lib Dems in Westminster & get over 117 seats. They would then hold balance of power in Westminster & Farage could demand the position of Prime Minister & half of Cabinet posts for UKIP MPs. Keeping first past the post will be Cameron's greatest legacy.
Nick Clegg called people who had a Biblical view on certain issues "dinosaurs". Looking at the election results so far I think the Lib Dems are looking extinct!
Great news for the beleaguered Nick Clegg - looks like the Lib Dems might have just pipped UKIP for fourth place in Oxford in the Euro elections. Both a very long way behind Labour in the city. Solid second for the Greens too.
My ideal night in. Election coverage. Junk food. Going to be an interesting night! My prediction is Ukip marginally ahead of Labour. Lib Dems in 5th behind Greens. Conservatives in 3rd place in national election since their inception. Oh and Nick Clegg out of a job by Tuesday. The only thing missing is Looby Lou

Sound bite of the day from Lord Ashdown "Getting rid of Nick Clegg would "damage the Lib Dems for ever". And being in coalition with the Conservatives hasn't ?
It is lovely to see Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems paying a price for their astonishing 4 years of sucking up to the Tories and for the scandalous way they broke their main election pledge within hours of Nick Clegg getting his foot through the door of number 10. Nick Clegg has single handedly wrecked the Liberal Democrats as a political party he has proved himself to be a man who can not be trusted and who's word stands for nothing!! In many ways he is even more odious than Cameron and his chums and deserves every drop of disdain he is now being shown by the public!! Nick Clegg will be remembered as the man who would be king and who sold his honour and respect and integrity for the privilege of being a Tory flea ridden lap dog and for wandering aimlessly around the halls of power like a bedraggled unloved mutt for five pointless years...
I see there are calls from a number of Lib Dems for Nick Clegg to step down. Did he ever step up to anything? He certainly hasn't stood up to the Tories!
Snort.. Proving that some just never learn, some Lib Dems want to replace Nick Clegg.. with Vince the Fable Cable:
“I'm not going to quit, says Clegg” Press Association - 23 May 2014 * Nick Clegg has insisted he will not consider resigning after a dismal showing in local elections, arguing that the Liberal Democrats are "still winning" in their strongholds. The Deputy Prime Minister conceded that his party had suffered at the hands of a Ukip surge, blaming a "very strong anti-politics feeling" among the public. But he added: "Actually I think in the areas where we have MPs where we have good organisation on the ground... we are actually doing well." The Lib Dems are seemingly on track to lose more than 300 councillors, bringing them to their lowest overall numbers for three decades. The Tories have taken charge of Kingston Council - the back yard of Energy Secretary Ed Davey - and they have lost control in Portsmouth following gains by Nigel Farage's party. A rare glimmer of good news came in Eastleigh, where the Lib Dems have tightened their grip on the local authority after successfully defending the parliamenta ...
Nick Clegg states he won't resign. He won't have to; after May 2015 the few remaining Lib Dems will take him away and shoot hi…
Like the Lib Dems, if Nick Clegg didn't exist, there would be absolutely no need to invent him.
Lib Dems totally wiped off the face of the Lambeth council land scape. Even our safest seats went. Labour in total control of all the wards except one Tory held ward. Greens are third of the percentage of total votes. With Lib Dems now 4th place. Nick Clegg must resign.
"Lib Dems braced for Total Wipeout"... am I the only one who wants to see Nick Clegg actually made to go on Total Wipeout?

Bad times for the Lib Dems. Will Nick Clegg face a coup?
A slightly longer piece about the elections tomorrow by Newnham organiser and Kingsman Micha Eversley: I was going to bang on about the value of a Lib Dem ‘promise’. I was going to jump at the chance to rant at the hypocrisy of a party supposedly standing up for students tripling university fees, cutting EMA and allowing Michael Gove into power. But I won’t (I still hope you saw what I did there…). Instead, I hope to make a very slightly more subtle point: that when push comes to shove, the Lib Dems can never stand up for the vulnerable as the Labour Party does. The Lib Dems are on retreat. For obvious reasons, just 6% of students support them. They are therefore appeasing their core base, desperately hoping not to be wiped out. To do so, the Cambridge Lib Dems are diverting council money and time to their surest support: the wealthiest parts of Cambridge. They are taking money away from the weakest, and putting it into the wealthy areas the Lib Dems do well in. I do not wish to claim the Labour P ...
Nick Clegg..no matter what he says...I just can't bring myself to vote for the Lib Dems. I cannot!
Well obviously folks the gemme is now a'bogey. There is absolutely no point in voting Yes. All problems have been sorted because Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems have guaranteed that we will get new powers if we vote no. Just like they promised on tuition fees and even signed a declaration.oh but wait a minute.
Nick Clegg slams SNP, Ukip for ‘creating division’ SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE: Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has launched an attack on the SNP and Ukip as he drew a direct comparison between the parties and accused them of attempting to “create division”. The Liberal Democrat leader claimed both Alex Salmond and Nigel Farage wanted to “talk up difference” as he delivered a keynote speech in Edinburgh ahead of the European Parliament elections this week. Mr Clegg’s attack came after an ICM poll for The Scotsman showed the Lib Dems face the prospect of losing their only European seat north of the Border in Thursday’s elections. He claimed both the SNP and Ukip would “put Scotland’s position in the EU at risk” with an independent Scotland facing obstacles to winning membership and Mr Farage seeking to engineer the UK’s exit from the European Union. The ICM survey showed the SNP on a 36 per cent share of the vote, with Labour on 27 per cent, the Tories 13 per cent and the Lib Dems 7 per ...

Response to vile attack by Lib Dems and Nick Clegg on UKIP in the form of a blog! Please read!
In the midst of the free schools row between the Conservatives and Lib Dems, Nick Clegg describes former Michael Gove aide Dominic Cummings as "a loopy individual" with "an anger management issue".
Nick Clegg is “self obsessed, dishonest and revolting”. So says Education Secretary Michael Gove’s former special adviser Dominic Cummings, and I doubt there are many here present who would disagree with that assessment – except perhaps to say that it was a mite over-generous. Cummings is rightly exercised by Deputy Prime Minister Clegg’s weaselly machinations over Coalition education policy. Educational reform is undoubtedly one of the major achievements (some might argue the only notable achievement) of the Cameron administration. But the Lib Dems have sought consistently to undermine it, taking their cue from their leader Clegg who – after his …read more Source: Breitbart
The news has made me political today, so if you ain't British or feel that politics is a waste of time, please ignore this posting and the next. THERE IS SOMETHING HYSTERICAL ABOUT NICK CLEGG.. It is unpleasant to listen to him because his words come barging one after another, with no pause, as if in terror that somebody else may speak. I used to like this guy and vote for him, but he has become truly pathetic and unless the Lib Dems kick him out their party may virtually disappear. In the EU debates with Farage, he was so disappointed after losing the first that in the second he sounded like some football hooligan trying to intimidate with repetitious slogans, and avoided even hearing the questions, let alone answering them. This to me was a terrible shame because I'm basically on his side. Today he came on the radio, and his hysterical gabbling was truly ridiculous. It is time he learnt that breathing is best done in silence, not in an endless gabbling monotone.

Nick Clegg urges Lib Dems to shout "from the rooftops" about the party's policies, as he launches its local elections campaign.
Think back to Nick Clegg and David Cameron on the steps of Downing Street… No, we don’t want to either. It’s four years since the Lib Dems threw their lot in with the Tories. Since then it’s been broken promise after broken promise: They promised to abolish tuition fees - then they trebled them They warned us about a “Tory VAT bombshell” - then they raised VAT They promised fairer taxes - then they cut taxes for millionaires The Lib Dems made loads of promises in 2010 - but scratch the surface and you find out the truth Im Sick Of Nick Clegg

So many former Liberal Democrat voters planning to vote Labour in this coming local London and European Election in May its seems Nick Clegg is the biggest recruiter for Ed Miliband this time round. How times change. If you want to vote to support this Government actually vote Conservative be proud of it, if not vote Labour. I think statistically more Lib Dems will be voting Labout than for their own party.

Lib Dems support the Badger Cull too. From a letter to Julie Park [DJO] Status Update By Julie Park Just in case you thought the badger cull was supported by tories only - this is the response from the Lib Dems!!! Liberal Democrats Liberal Democrats Rory Belcher, Apr 25 17:18: Thank you for getting in touch with Nick Clegg regarding bovine TB and the badger cull. I am replying on his behalf. I’d like to thank you for sharing your views on this issue; we know that strong feelings are held by people on both sides of the debate. The badger cull was clearly a very difficult decision, but bovine TB is the most pressing animal health problem in the UK today. This disease resulted in the slaughter of 26,000 cattle last year alone, and has cost the taxpayer £500 million over the last decade. Bovine TB could cost us as much as £1 billion over the next decade if we fail to bring it under control. Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland and the USA are all examples of countries that have managed to sign ...
Lib Dems launch Euro manifesto Nick Clegg promised to take the fight to UKIP as he launched the Liberal Democrat's European election manifesto today. Speaking in Colchester, Nick Clegg said: “Ukip and others have been allowed to peddle their myths unchallenged for decades, claiming that all of our problems would magically disappear if the UK just left the EU. But it’s a dangerous fantasy. It’s the surest way to jeopardise jobs, risk our fragile economic recovery, and it will leave Britain alone and diminished in the world. “Well the Liberal Democrats aren’t scared to speak up. We are Britain’s party of IN and we are standing up for staying in Europe – loudly, passionately and unequivocally – because that is how we keep this nation stronger, safer and richer too. “Anyone who agrees that we are better off IN – whether that’s businesses, the crime fighting agencies, progressive voters and people who care about the environment: make yourselves heard.

A new poll suggests most of the public believe Nigel Farage should take part in a televised leaders' debates ahead of next year's General Election. A Comres poll has found 51% of people think UKIP should be represented alongside David Cameron, Labour leader Ed Miliband and Lib Dem Nick Clegg. Even more - 53% - say the Prime Minister would look like a coward if he refused to take on Mr Farage. It comes amid Conservative fears that UKIP could top the polls in England in next month's European eletions. The party is enjoying a popularity boost after Mr Farage easily won a television debate against Mr Clegg. The party thinks its overall poll position - which at 15% is well ahead of the Lib Dems - means it ought to be included in any further debates. And Mr Farage has warned that if the party is excluded he will provide "an alternative form of entertainment on the evening". www.ukip.org
Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems lost all theirs over student tuition fees. Nothing left to clutch when electoral pledges are trashed.
Having watched the Nick Clegg / Nigel Farrage debate I thought the real issue is that The British people who have fought their own corner and won for centuries are sick of being dictated too by Faceless E.U. bureaucrats. These days one can't even pass gas without there being an E.U. rule on it. If Farrage gives the Tories and Lib Dems a good thrashing at the next elections they'll only have themselves to blame. Apparently the E.U. regs on cabbages is five times the length of The Gettysburg address.
Congratulations - to both Nigel Farage, UKIP leader - on his evident honesty in saying things how they are. Obviously, it would appear that he has been reading my FB commentaries!!! Congratulations to Nick Clegg - leader of the Lib Dems - in allowing the nation to see how appallingly deficient he really is re understanding the British nation etc. He is very good at spouting sound bites that do not demand too much brain & cognitive processing energy, within himself - or others too! Unfortunately - Mr Farage is NOT in political power - whilst Mr Clegg IS!!!
after watching the debate with Nigel Farage and Nick Clegg yesterday, made me think, if UKIP's support grows at the expense of Labours and Lib Dems, which I think it will, then next election (next may), we *could" see a Conservative - UKIP coalition government.with Cameron as PM of course and Nigel Farage as Deputy PM .how about that.:)
Looks like Nigel Farage won the debate with Nick Clegg tonight. Doesn't mean the UKIP ideas and ideology are popular with the British public. As it is, even GEJ will win a debate with Nick Clegg. His party lost all of its credibility a long time ago. And it will take at least half a century for them- the Lib Dems- to recover.
After that showing by Nick Clegg unless Lib Dems appoint a new leader they have got no chance in the european elections and god help them in the General Election next May
Think Nick Clegg has killed the Lib Dems during this parliament. Rather than try and convince everyone (badly) that he agreed with coalition policies he should have been telling everyone that his party did not agree but that a compromise had to be reached in order to make any progress at all. It should have been a message of "if we weren't here then you should have seen how bad this could have been. We will keep plugging away". He's turned them into a laughable puppet party and Cameron must be laughing his head off. Farage has " won" two debates on Europe with a party on its knees. Its not that Farage is "right" its that Clegg is hopeless.
We’re Back / Lib Dem Conference It is fair to say that Liberal Democrat Conferences aren’t the most exciting of affairs but this meeting in Aberdeen provided a few shocks. Alistair Carmichael had to deal with the breaking news that the UK Government will of course negotiate a currency union. Nick Clegg announced that the Party still wanted a Federal UK despite being in the position to make that a reality now. Former Lib Dem Chief executive Andy Myles and former treasurer Denis Sullivan announced they were going to vote YES. Tavish Scott blamed the Labour Party for the mess that is Better Together. (He also thinks that every Lib Dem will vote no…. I’m not even sure every Lib Dem MP will vote No far less every Lib Dem voter) For me the most significant moment was a short but truthful interview with former Edinburgh West MP John Barrett. The jist was because of issues such as the tuition fees situation in England the perception is that at best Lib Dems can’t be trusted and at worst Lib Dems are l . ...
Once again we see the BBC spinning a planted story to enhance the establishment political parties. You can always tell a planted story, as it comes from "senior government sources". This time it is a collusion between the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives to pander to their wavering voters. For the Lib Dems, it is Nick Clegg claiming he is green, because he has supposedly vetoed a Conservative proposal to block future onshore wind farms (BBC new report 1/4/14). Whilst Clegg is trying to appeal to Green supporters, the Tories are trying to appeal to UKIP voters, by appearing to be against wind farms. It is clearly just a planted story and the BBC should be ashamed of being a party to such subterfuge. If you want Green Policies, then vote for the Green Party. If you are against wind farms, vote for UKIP. Whatever you do, DO NOT vote for the old grey parties, whether Lib Dem, Tory or Labour, who have all failed Britain for the last 30 years and should be thrown out, as the liars and charlatans that they ar ...

Nick Clegg appears to be a decent man but, not knowing him personally, I find it hard to accept he can live with supporting some of the evil policies from the Tories.

New Towns Act 2015? Mills & Reeve LLP / Christine de Ferrars Green United Kingdom March 11 2014 - As the current national debate continues on the best way to deliver more high quality, well designed and appropriately located new housing, the question of whether we should be promoting some new New Towns is often raised. The Labour Party has commissioned the Lyons Housing Review which has called for evidence of the contribution which a new generation of new towns (and also garden cities) can make to a step-change in housing building. Recently, Nick Clegg for the Lib Dems has also been clear in his support for new towns to promote sustainable development and to put an end to the numerous “small incursions” on green spaces. The Conservatives, as one would expect, are less forthcoming. So, is there a need for a new New Towns Act to facilitate delivery of a new housing strategy post-2015, if the electorate returns a Government with a political will to deliver a 21st new towns programme?

announced today - Nick Clegg willing to form coalition with labour. That means 4 things to me 1) He like a large percentage of us want David Cameron gone for ever, 2) He knows the Lib Dems cant win at next election 3) he thinks labour can 4) he is prepared to help them do so if sharing seats is required (i think labour will win outright if they get rid of milliband for someone less of a halfwit)
From the Huff Post and the Gurdian: CLEGG PLAYS FOOTSIE WITH LABOUR Nick Clegg has hinted at a possible post-election deal with Labour, in a move that will be seen as evidence of an attempt to thaw the Liberal Democrats' relationship with Ed Miliband. In an interview for a BBC Radio 4 documentary to be broadcast on Monday night, the Deputy Prime Minister praises Labour for embracing the possibility of sharing power while accusing David Cameron of being driven to the right by backbenchers... Reflecting on the role the Lib Dems would have in a possible Lib-Lab coalition, he said: 'There is just no doubt in my mind that if there were a Labour-Liberal Democrat coalition, we the Liberal Democrats would absolutely insist that government would not break the bank.' I would be more worried about his proven record for breaking his promises!!

India-born millionaire's arrest shakes up UK politics LONDON: The arrest of an India-born businessman and his son as part of a probe by the UK's Serious Fraud Office (SFO) into allegations of bribery at aerospace and defence major Rolls-Royce has shaken the corridors of power in Britain. Multi-millionaire Sudhir Choudhrie and his son Bhanu, well-known as major political donors to deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg's Liberal Democrat party, were arrested and questioned for several hours on Wednesday before being bailed without conditions. A spokesperson for the duo said they "deny all wrongdoing and are cooperating fully with the investigation". Britain's coalition partners Lib Dems are now under the spotlight over their close links with Choudhrie, known to friends as Bunny. He has given the party over 500,000 pounds since 2010 and over 1 million pounds since 2004.

Because oh they were the chosen ones, and how people had voted in hope that they might restore the balance and save the Galaxy. But nope. They ended up working for Palpatine. The only fault here is that by this analogy Nick Clegg is Darth Vader and really he just isn't that cool. And this is what I think when I should be sleeping.
Anyone want Nick Clegg's office phone number? It does seem true that Adam Pritchard who was a senior policy manager with the Lib Dems is not in his job anymore.wonder if it had to do with the fact he spoke with me on a number of occasions early last year and was...
So the party political broadcast by the "Scottish" Liberal Democrats just now starts with Nick Clegg - Nice one! I once voted (can't remember when) for them but never in my life again. I expect the first thing the Lib Dems would do in Scotland would be to introduce tuition fees just to be consistent with what they did in the rest of the UK.
Watching the Nick Clegg in the Lib Dems Party Broadcast for the European Unions Elections. Stating all the reasons to stay in Europe. Listening to him has convince me we really should be out of it.

Cameron dropped the ball on discipline, with full backing of Lib Dems - Tristram Hunt Responding to press reports on classroom discipline, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary Tristram Hunt MP said: "David Cameron and Michael Gove have dropped the ball on discipline by allowing unqualified teachers into our classrooms. "They had the full support of their coalition partners the Lib Dems, who signed off on allowing unqualified teachers. This has damaged school standards, with ill-discipline blighting learning for hundreds of thousands of pupils across the country." He added on the response of Lib Dems to the reported politicisation of Ofsted: "Lib Dem crocodile tears about the decision to sack Sally Morgan is too little, too late and Lib Dem gesture politics of the worst kind. Nick Clegg and David Laws are failing to prevent attempts by the Tories to politicise Ofsted."
Nick Clegg warned the Lib Dems could lose all their women MPs after the ... - Daily Mail
Even with this guy as a member of the party Nick Clegg is still the biggest gullible *** in the Lib Dems.
That *** leader of the Lib Dems stating that people smoking in the front of cars won't affect kids sitting in the back, where does he think the smoke is going to go. Nick Clegg you must have come from cookoo land. No wonder your party is on the way out
if Nick Clegg doesn't walk after this as leader of Lib Dems and Deputy PM.
(I received a special request by a UKIP official in Blackpool, they've asked me if I could write a poem about the end of the coalition government - and would I possibly like to attend their next party conference in Blackpool, and read the poem to the invited audience? I'll be so very honoured too. Light refreshments will also be available - as well as signed copies of my poem! Thank You All.) THE END OF THE UK COALITION The UK Government, think they are class, And all their ‘own’ wealth they do amass? The Lib Dems are pathetic, as they just hang on, The puppet, Nick Clegg, he’s just a clone! David Cameron, well, what do you say? When all the disabled you rob, as you cause more affray? The day will arrive when you will dread, As the stinking coalition – will most certainly be dead! You punish the poor – but help the rich, You thieving swine’s, you are a glitch! You praise Atos for punishing the disabled and the sick – As you bung them payments - so they get rich, quick! The old age pensioners ...

The Lib Dems (leader Nick Clegg pictured) are in court today to suppress further allegations about sexual misconduct by one of their MPs.
Nick Clegg can't force anyone to apologise. That would imply he actually possesses authority within the Lib Dems.
He was the fresh-faced new politician on the block in 2010. But with the Rennard row showing no signs of easing, Nick Clegg looks weary and his party is in the doldrums. What next for the Lib Dems?

Nick Clegg's former aide quits Lib Dems with attack on handling of Rennard row - The...
Who still does not know the meaning or nature of racism? Lib Dems leader Nick Clegg has been accused by some of his colleagues of acting like the Ku Klux Klan for trying to further discipline Lord Rennard over unproved sexual harassment allegations. This has caused much mirth in some sections of the press. The press however were not amused when one of its own was compared to the Nazis by former London Mayor Ken Livingston. They went ballistic. Yet why should we be surprised? After all; one accusation is ludicrous and the other is apparently a criminal offence. Why is this though? I bet Sammy Davis Junior would have been confused as ***

The Lib Dems will not be pursuing a disciplinary hearing into Lord Rennard, despite Nick Clegg declaring that his party had let down women for two decades.
I haven't seen tonight, but my TL mentions pain, death and the Lib Dems. Did Nick Clegg cameo as Moriarty or something?
Now watching 'Daily Politics' with Andrew Neil. I think it is Francis Maude speaking. The relationship between Labour and Lib Dems being discussed. Nick Clegg, will he be there waiting in the wings to be Depute Prime Minister again under a Labour government.who would like to put a bet on that one? Changes with the wind.
