    You're right of course, but the alternative round here is a tory called 'fabian ricter'. Fabian. Ricter. Tory or not, I don't think I could live with that.

    Plus the lib dem from here, old don foster, was one of the few who went to parliament and moaned about the DEB, which makes him ok in my book.

    I was going to spoil or vote loony but now I think I'm gonna vote lib dem despite it all. Oh how I've fallen. :facepalm:

    To become a contender you have to lie and dissemble in order to capture swing voters. Every major party does this. Don't blame them - blame FPTP.

    Nonsense - lying and dissembling is their very soul. They'd do it anyway.

    They do not support nuclear disarmament.

    They won't replace Trident like-for-like, but are happy to downsize.

    They supported the war in Afghanistan. Anyone MP who supported that has blood on their hands, surely.

    Every single MP who didn't walk out there and then has blood on their hands.

    agree about paddick, he had the courage to come out and as far as i know paddick & his former wife remain on good terms. but he went on the 'i'm a celebrity get me out of here' and i think lost all if any credibility he had.

    Paddick's too busy attacking the unions (RMT a lib-dem speciality) to bother about all that.

    That's right - apparently he was unable to move to the side. (Insert centrist joke here)

    Not at all. Your idealism has no place in politics under FPTP - sorry.

    If you wake up on May 7th and the Libdems have won your biggest concern will be finding your way back from the alternative reality you've been sucked into

    You are, of course, correct. I got my dates reversed. Still, they kept Labour in power when an early victory by Maggie would have seen an early departure by Maggie.

    They support votes for paedos (according to one Labour candidate, anyway).

    Butchers - I'm too busy atm to keep up but can you explain to me why you're so anti LibDem when this 'surge' in interest - and possibly support - is the best chance of a NL led hung Parliament?

    I don't want a NL led hung parliament.

    I just hate the lib-dems...

    A comment on Twitter that made me laugh (paraphrasing from memory):

    Lib Dems propose to get rid of Trident. Britain will instead be protected by impenetrable wall of self-righteousness.
