Voting for someone who makes all the right noises, making all sorts of claims, as they know they're never going to be voted in
Dont worry Nigel means what he says and wont let you down
OK stopping now
perhaps vote for SWP to get Labour to swing a little more left - but here's the kicker.
I think th ekicker is they knwo their core vote anre there and unlikely to jump ship to the Tories or from tory to labour so they can largely ignore them [ the rise of UKIP means CMD can no longer do this] and concentrate in getting the floating voters who swap sides as they are the ones that will get them in power. Its one of the main reasons their is little to choose between the parties but for flavouring tbh - one slightly more pro strivers and enterprise the other slightly more helping hand but basically the same on many issues
They should never have got into bed with the Tories. What did they really think would happen?
to be fiar to them they had little choice as this was the only way of getting a stable govt without another election
What they should have done is stand by their principles and actually negotiate well to achieve thier goals as the Tories could not rule without them.What they seem to have done is capitualate and get the odd crumb from the table as we see mainly Tory policies
they have limited them re the NHS, Europe and affected taxation re raising of the limit to 10 k. however they will always be remembered for ignoring that pledge and voting for the cuts they opposed in opposition and in manifesto
I think they were so keen to show they could giovern they forgot that what they did was mor eimportant than the fact they were doing it [ I also think clegg is to the right of his own party whihc is left of centre imho and he is right of centre]
