LibDems: The new "stupid party"
The truth is the LibDems' main problem is that they're a rubbish party. They're basically Labour minus the trade unions and the working class: a bunch of narcissitic, middle class Lefties with the charisma of the ten a penny United Nations functionary most of them aspire to be
Among the leaders of the three biggest Westminster parties it's perfectly possible that Nick Clegg is the most unpleasant. Though it's a toss up with Ed Miliband it's also possible that he's the most sheltered and out of touch, as we all saw when he blundered his way into the Europe debates, puffed-up to bursting point with the confidence that his opponent was a know-nothing europhobe, only to be annihilated.
But none of that is the reason the LibDems got such a pasting at Thursday's elections and the fact that the likes of Lembit Opik -- who gets attention in the media mainly because people like the sound of his name -- and seemingly many others in the LibDems now want Clegg to go, just shows how out of touch the LibDems really are.
The truth is that the LibDems' main problem is that they're a rubbish party. They're basically Labour minus the trade unions and the working class: a bunch of narcissitic, middle class Lefties with the charisma of the ten a penny United Nations functionary that most of them aspire to be.
They're also totally immature.
LibDem MP John Hemming turned up on Sky NEWS on Sunday morning to say he wouldn't "shed a tear" if Clegg went because he was "unhappy" with some of the government's decisions. Oh grow up. It's a coalition you twerp, and you're the junior partner.
LibDems have been banging on about proportional representation for years -- a system that would all but guarantee permanent coalition government. Now that they find themselves in a coalition, half the party's whining about it.
The LibDems? Bah humbug...
