LIBERALS UNFIT TO GOVERN…

By David Vance On August 6th, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Oh my, but isn’t Nick Clegg an ANGRY boy today;

Plans to reform the House of Lords are being abandoned after Conservatives “broke the coalition contract”, Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has announced. Agreement on an elected Lords could not be reached with Tory opponents, he said, and the plans would be shelved rather than face a “slow death”. As a result, he said Lib Dem MPs could not now support Conservative-driven changes to Commons boundaries in 2015.

He’ll scwream and he’ll scwream until he makes himself sick.  What a buffoon.  I would love to see an Election right now, it would see Lib Dems in meltdown and the voters could choose if they want the Party that gave us the economic meltdown (Labour) or the Party that refuses to deal with it (Conervatives). Then again, I suppose there is always  UKIP….

NICK CLEGG – CLASS WARRIOR

By David Vance On May 23rd, 2012 at 8:42 am

Yes his party may be less popular than typhoid BUT that doesn’t stop Liberal-Democrat Leader Nick Clegg from indulging in a little bit of class warfare, it’s gets lib hearts a pounding…

Snobbery is the national “religion” as millions of children from poor families are denied good jobs because of “class attitudes”, Nick Clegg has claimed.

Well, since Clegg is an avowed atheist, maybe he needs to think a little harder before speaking of religion? Moving on, it seems to me that it is the political left who are snobs, they are the people who are demanding that Universities lower their standards to let “the poor” in – so implying people from humble backgrounds cannot achieve the necessary grades. Like many others, I came from a working class background and owe everything I now have to a decent education which I achieved by hitting my grades. I would have been horrified at being allowed access to higher education with lesser grades just because of the income my parents earned. This is pious cant from Clegg and it enrages me to hear him patronise so many young people. HE is the snob, plain and simple, a patronising and odious snob who will be swept away into electoral oblivion in three years time.

Speaks for itself

An Egypt-styled “Arab Spring,” which has put radicals in charge of the government, will be launched in the United States this spring with a war on “corporate power, Wall Street greed and the political corruption of the 1 percent,” according to the group headed by former Obama green aide Van Jones.

“They’re really not going to like the 99 percent Spring,” said Rebuild the Dream in an organizing email Friday.

Comparing the collection of protests last year that are symbolized by the 99 percent campaign and Occupy movement, to those of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., the group said that “we were all inspired by the protesters of the Arab Spring who stood up to totalitarian governments, and inspired the Occupy movement here in America.”

The plan for now is to hold protest training sessions around the nation next week. Over 900 are scheduled so far.

Once ready, the group and dozens of others, notably MoveOn.org and labor unions, will launch the “99 Percent Spring” offensive against government and financial centers.

“We’re at a crossroads as a country. In recent years, millions have lost their jobs, homes have been foreclosed, and an unconscionable number of children live in poverty. We have to stand up to the people who caused of all this and confront the rampant greed and deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our economy by a tiny minority in the 1%,” said Caroline Murray, of Rebuild the Dream Innovation Fund, in the organizing email.

EAT THE RICH….

By David Vance On March 10th, 2012 at 10:06 am

I see that class warrior Nick Clegg has called for a ‘tycoon tax’ that would force the rich to pay a minimum rate and tackle the problem of tax avoidance.

The Deputy Prime Minister said it was unfair that while ordinary Britons were paying 30 or 40 per cent, hundreds of millionaires were getting away with sacrificing less than 20 per cent of their income by using an ‘army of lawyers and accountants’.

So, Nick Clegg thinks that the “tycoons” need to pay more. Here’s a few Statistic for you.

  • Britain’s top 1% of earners pay 27% of all income taxes. Is that fair,  Nick?
  • The top 10% of households contribute, on average, five times more than they get back. Is that fair, Nick?
  • 60% of households get back MORE than they contribute. Is that fair, Nick?

The Liberal-Democrats are driven by pathetic envy and petty jealousy. This latest wheeze by Clegg to impose additional taxation on those who already pay a disproportionately large amount of tax is all I would expect from these hard left class warriors. But let’s call it what it is!

THE LIB-DEM INSURGENCY WITHIN..

By David Vance On March 7th, 2011 at 5:20 pm

Here’s an interesting insight into the mindset of Liberal-Democrats;

Leading MEP Andrew Duff has tabled “federalist” proposals to enable future EU treaty revisions to be made with a four-fifths majority of member states, in a bid to bypass the UK’s ‘referendum lock’ on any further treaty amendments. Duff gave a group of Brussels journalists a copy of a letter he sent yesterday (3 March) to European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek, in which he calls for a revision of Article 48 of the Lisbon Treaty. If Duff’s proposal was to succeed, future EU treaty amendments could be agreed by a four-fifths majority of member countries, instead of unanimity as is currently the case. Duff, a UK Liberal Democrat MEP who sits in the Parliament’s ALDE group, made it plain that his intention was to solve “the British problem,” as he called it, and to counter the “referendum lock” that Britain put on any future EU treaty changes involving transfers of power to Brussels (see ‘Background’).

Need I point out that this Liberal Democrat who seeks to stop any British lock on further treaty amendments and who identifies the issue as “the British problem”….is British?
