Quote of the Day…

May 11th, 2010 Posted in Liberal Democrats by

From the fabulous Jennie Rigg on my facebook page:

“Why is there this assumption that we want a deal with Labour? None of us have forgotten 1997. They shafted us then, and they want to shaft us now. Labour and the Tories suck equally. Most Lib Dems think so, including, and I have asked him this in person, Clegg.”

    “Labour and the Tories suck equally.”

    Exactly! Polly Toynbee doesn’t understand this, but there are a lot of things about Lib Dems, liberals and liberalism she fails to understand.

  2. Liam Elvish Says:

    Having initially supported the idea of a Lib-Con arrangement, I think it is quite right that the party rejects a Coalition outright and allows the Tories to govern as a minority. There are things profoundly illiberal within both Labour and the Conservative parties, and it would be far wiser to remain a strong, independent voice holding the government to account before another elction is called later in the year. >

    Not exactly a good advert for PR…

    The tories suck a lot less now we’ve tempered them…
