If you haven’t already done so today, get out and vote in the referendum/local council/devolved institutions that are in your area. I did and now feel morally superior to those that didn’t. I voted no, I’d recommend you do to but won’t hold it against you if you vote Yes….unless yes wins of course and our country is forced to undertake this shitty little electoral omnishambles. But come on….let’s wipe the grin off Chris Huhne’s face!

First we had the mad old biddy Cable on manouvres, then Huhne and his obnoxious self-righteousness and Now Cleggover has waded in attacking the Tories….and all because they’re winning the AV argument with the public.
Now, the libdems can throw their dummy out of the pram and split from the coalition if they want but they would get annihilated, possibly seeing them drop to fourth in the popular vote at their current rate of decline (doubt they’d be so keen on full pr then!) and returning the country to two party politics.
This leaves the PM with a choice, he can either throw the libdems some red meat after the referendum, or he can do the sensible thing and offer no more concessions. If the liberal democrats want to survive as a political entity then they have to last the full term in coalition.
Saint Vince cannot help himself. He must be desperate to leave. Apparently it’s only liberal democrat restraint that’s preventing the tories from reverting to ‘Thatcherite baby eaters’. That’s a bit insulting, this government has a long way to go before it matches the achievements of The Iron Lady and her team. And we know what she would have done with a disloyal wretch like you, you’d have been eviscerated by now!
I’m sure there are an awful lot of Tories that need to be restrained in your presence Vince. It’s high time you were put out to pasture by the PM. You’ve caused nothing but trouble for the coalition this past year and you’re not even very good as a Business minister. Clear off and leave it to competent people to do the ministerial work! In fact, you might as well cross the floor, opposition is your natural home.
Well the news that Standard & Poor have downgraded the US’s AAA rating outlook to negative has been a bit of a bombshell. It does vindicate George Osborne’s decision to treat our own defecit with the seriousness it deserved though…and Obama’s come out of it looking completely useless again. He’s in danger of making Bush II look like a collossus in comparison.
It’s been a long time coming but surely Vince Cable has to waltz his way out of the cabinet when the reshuffle takes place. He’s just had a go at Cameron over his immigration speech. I know LibDems are generally wetter than a damp lettuce but man up Vince, he’s not saying anything the overwhelming majority of the British public would disagree with. It’s ludicrous the amount our public services and councils have to spend on translation services every year, it leads to the immigrant being isolated from their own neighbours and there grows distrust on both sides and thats where people like The BNP and the EDL step in. So bugger off Cable, you’ve been a crap minister. The Business Secretary in this government has carte blanche to cut through redtape like confetti but we’ve hardly heard you, bring back Laws, at least he actually did his bloody job in his short time as a minister.
Finally, someone in the Tory Party has seen sense and has come out on the offensive against AV….and very effectively too. No surprise that it’s the party’s best performer in the last 12 months, Chancellor George Osborne. He may get routinely attacked with the ‘Posh Tory Boy’ tag by the bitter left but he’s proven to be far away the most savvy political operator in Westminster. He’s given his opinion to The Mail on what a ‘dirty little compromise‘ AV actuallly is. But this being Osborne that isn’t the end of it. He also found the time to give the Lib Dems a swift kick to the scrotum and reminded them of their place. They have been getting a bit up themselves lately so an intervention from a senior Tory figure is welcome.
And a very interesting YouGov poll shows that the Yes vote may not be capturing the public’ss imagination in the way that they hoped
