I find some of the postings on here very confusing. A lot of people seeking to complain about the Lib Dems going into coalition as junior partner and then not following through on their pre-election promises. Well duh, what a surprise, they are not actually in power! Their role is to keep the conservatives on as tight a leash as they can, which they seem to be making an ok job of, when not being pilloried by vested interest media.
As for people potentially seeking to kick lib-dems out of Marple because of their 'betrayal', by then voting conservative (the real architects of government policy) then I'm obviously missing the logic.
Nationally are we to always have two party policitcs? Are we really that stupid a population? Kick out one government for being hopeless, bring in another, and then within 2 years swing back towards the previous idiots who messed it up before. My god, we really do get what we deserve don't we!
For me it beggars belief that we dismissed the opportunity to change our political system in the voting referendum. If we had sought to move towards a system where everybodies vote actually counted for something, then maybe we could have a sensible political debate. As for now, where 'Labour can't win here' is a political slogan (and also true), how can we have a real debate and a proper political choice.
