A man walked into the Lib Dem bookshop and asked for a copy of the party’s manifesto. The assistant replied: “I’m sorry, we’ve sold out.”. The man replied: “I know that, but could I have a copy of your manifesto?”
Last week the Lib Dems launched its manifesto for Brighton and Hove. At the heart of the manifesto are six main points which they call “Six to Fix”:
- An end to the City’s postcode lottery system of allocating school places.
- Keeping Brighton and Hove key buildings in the public sphere.
- A total revamp of the City’s transport system
- An increase in the rate of recycling and the items that are included to food and garden waste and other forms of plastic.
- Establishing an ambitious support system to support new businesses and entrepreneurs
- Bringing local communities together to fight anti social behavior.
Given the form of the Lib Dems regarding manifesto pledges, the Lib Dems are likely to:
- Support the postcode lottery for school places
- Destroy public transport
- Scrap recycling schemes
- Undermine new businesses
- Promote wishy-washy liberal policies regarding anti-social behaviour.
The only question I have is “How can anyone take the Lib Dems seriously after Cleggs sell out.”. The only answer I have is quite simple: nobody in this May’s local elections. The only regret I have is that Rebecca Taylor @rtaylorhove, is a Lib Dems. Move over, Rebecca, and join either Labour or the Greens. Don’t waste your talent in a party that has sold out, is washed up and is going nowhere.
