Nick Clegg thinks elections are less important than the price of bread

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

I already wrote about the Glasgow East by-election result on the CEP blog this morning so I won’t do it again here except to comment on what an enormously stupid muppet Nick Clegg is for failing to lay the boot in to Gordon Brown like anyone with an ounce of political sense would do.

While David Cameron and Alex the Salmon are calling for leadership and general elections, Nick Clegg said:

[it is not] time to play politics with people’s lives […] when so many people are worried about the price of a loaf of bread, how to fill their car with a tank of petrol

Who agreed to Federal Europe’s suggestion that all diesel sold must contain a certain amount of biofuel, leading to worldwide shortages of cereal crops used to make bread (amongst other staple food stuffs) as poor farmers turn their fields over to biofuel production?

Who has refused to cut the duty on fuel, preferring to rake in countless billions of pounds extra in fuel duty to fund a pre-election spending bonanza next year instead of shielding us from rising oil prices?

Liebour and their unelected Prime Minister, that’s who.  I don’t think an election which gives us an opportunity to choose who we think is best for the job of running our country is playing politics with peoples’ lives.  The people running the country are directly responsible for the price of bread the price of petrol and our ability to pay for both.  Could Cleggover be more worried about how the Illiberal Dumbocrats will fare in an election based on last night’s result than democracy?  Do bears shit in the woods?

Liberal Democrats: making a mockery of politics since 1988

    I think he has accepted, that in scotland at least, the liberals are now the biggest of the non important parties, the greens, the BNP et al. The tories are now number 3, in the struggle between labour and the SNP.

    A leadership challenge could trigger a General Election and the wipe out of the lib/dums, this is what he means and fears.

    If the Scottish Socialist party hadn’t split, the Liberals would have come fifth in Glasgow East. It’s clear that the Liberals will be squeezed as much as Labour… unless there’s some kind of electoral reform in the next two years. I suspect Labour might change the way we vote (from FPTP to STV) if it’s in their interest…

    The socialists still represent ‘traditional’ labour values, it is a shame that they only really exist in west central scotland, if they were nation\country\island wide, there would be less dithering for who to vote for instead of Labour. In fact, it would not even be seen as a protest vote but as vote for the party that most represents the ideals that the labour party once stood for
