Bullshit & Ignorance

The Great Liberal Deception

I’m getting quite caught up in the general election stuff at the moment. Nick Clegg’s performance in the leaders debate last week has thrust him and the Liberal Democrat party into the public eye like never before. Apparently this boost in popularity for the Lib Dems has put the frighteners on Tory-supporting-hate-mongers The Daily Mail, who have devoted their “Debate” page to bashing Clegg and his party and politics all under the glorious title of “The Great Liberal Deception”. Guardian blogger Paul Owen posted an article on this which you can see by following this link!

Despite having been a supporter of Liberal Democrat politics for as long as I’ve been able to vote, I can’t see them actually winning the general election. That’s not to say that they might not take a bigger slice of the pie and of course increase the likelihood of a hung parliament thus giving them an opportunity to enter into a coalition with someone – but winning it outright is highly unlikely. As a spectacle I’m enjoying it though; Clegg and his party are like a non-league football team going on a giant-killing F.A. Cup run. Deep down you know they’re never going to go all the way but we all love an underdog and so I’m enjoying the journey, watching them sticking it to the established giants as they go.

    Your adherance to liberalism is testimony of your utter ignorance. While mass spending and the promise of “free stuff” drives your heroes on their way to the demigogery they seek via your stupidity, the euro is in danger of collapse. Riots in Greece, bankrupcy in multipule nations, massive bailouts all have no effect on your pea brain whatsoever.

    One day it will be YOUR turn to pay the piper. Nothing is free, get a clue dipshit.

    Oh Bren, Bren, Bren. Such rage.

    I’d be way more inclined to answer your points with counter-points if you made any. However, slinging insults and blaming the collapse of a global economy on ‘liberalism’ isn’t making a point. Pretty sure the policies that brought the world to its knees were largely those allowing bankers to fuck people hard with rusty chainsaws and call it credit. Risky and frankly stupid lending encouraged by deregulating financial markets and all those other fun things that have nothing to do with ‘liberalism’ or for that matter, public spending.

    Thanks for coming out though.
