In Praise Of The Heretical Lib Dems

They are the only party willing to dissent from the cult of the NHS, arguing that no department can be ring fenced from spending cuts. The Tories don't believe in the cult either but they are terrified of being exposed like an atheist in Saudi Arabia. Ring fencing the NHS's vast budget inevitably means that other services have to endure deeper cuts in order to maintain millionaire consultants in the style to which they have become accustomed.

Agreed. Nick tried to explain this to Paxo but Paxo as usual was not having it. Paxo equated 'NHS budget cuts' with 'cuts in services' and refused to accept the former was possible without the latter ensuing.

They are the only party wishing us to be open to EU takeover post-May 6th and who would give amnesty on illegal immigrants, thereby encouraging them to come in their droves.

Also, you can't trust anything the Big Three leaders say.

Mark- yes, any talk of cuts is immediately framed as turfing out sick babies out of incubators.

James- The Lib Dems may be all that, but when they are right I'll praise them.
