Lib Dems destroyed in by-election wipe out.
By-election result here.
If there are two parties I really hate (for the same reason)at least both are going to be wiped out.
The Irish Greens went into coalition with 'corrupt motorway building through prehistoric sites' Fianna Fail...they will lose all their MPs in the spring election in Ireland
The Tories are in government with a big enough majority to out Thatcher Thatcher only because of the Lib Dems.
Poll here. showing Lib dems on 7%
Being a seasoned watcher of these thing I knew Nick Clegg had been part of an orange book coup to bring free market fundamentalists into control of the leftish Liberal Democrats.
Millions of Lib Dem voters did not pick up on this and even if some of them prefered Tories to Gordon Brown I doubt they would have wanted forest sell off, destruction of state education, dissection of NHS.
In a wicked world the fact that Lib Dems are going to be annihilated make me happy.
And I am breaking ranks to oppose AV, cos the only way they will elect MPs is with AV and transfers from the Conservative Party and UKIP.
A no to AV vote could destroy the coalition, sorry folks I have kids who might want to go to university, I love forests, the NHS delivered my babies and looked after me when I was very sick...the Lib Dems need to be sunk!
