More than likely is. However, the Lib-dems will not retain any semblance of power in 2015, thanks to cleggie.

Edit:

Talking of cleggie, didn't he just get a severe rollicking from Sir Alan Sugar?

Edit 2:

Any chance of this officer dropping one on Ed's? :) Or maybe the criminal likes Jerry Lee Lewis songs

"Simon will now be able to use his talents inside the coalition, helping the Liberal Democrats to anchor the government in the centre ground and helping us to build a stronger economy and a fairer society, enabling everyone to get on in life," he said.

What a load of old gobbledygook...it pains me at times to have to read this type
hype, and to know that "Some" people still believe in it too. What's this all
about, Clegg trying to promote a new vision of sorts, "The UK dream" achieve it
by voting centre ground LibDems. Come on Chris, time you dumped this and the
others they haven't got the answers and for sure are not taking us anywhere
near towards a prosperous future.

"The UK dream"......


.....is already here for the rich to get richer.....

Cheap labour for the bosses

"Briefing: Mr Cameron was told that the three-bedroom house had been converted into 10 bedrooms and up to 14 people in the house."

...and just why isn't the local councils doing anything?

Beginning to take on the bad habits of those second rate countries, a bit ominous
I'd say.

So it's all very well to read the Mail and say absolutely outrageous, what is the Council doing about it. Would you rather they close a couple of schools, or collect your rubbish once a month, or shut another police station?


This would have been an excellent post except for the above. We are aware that the media slant their reports to suit themselves, but the point is that the facts speak for themselves regardless of the slant. So...

Council Tax is meant to provide the services you mention above, however we are seeing this and if you have a problem with the source there is the Freedom of Information Act to confirm it, so use it if you feel the media is wrong. you often tell posters to write to their local councils/MP's etc, so for once, why don't you check the facts via FOI.

25% on retirement pensions rather than the services it's meant for

My statement above was all to do with the way people are abusing others with
illegal housing and nothing to do with what the council are doing to combat it.
We are clearly getting the rouge type landlords going in to renting just like
they do, but in greater quantities, in these second rate countries.

I do not place "store" in the media. Just because the Mail is a paper that runs down your party, you see red without taking note of the facts in the story. You attack the messenger instead.

Disjointed? you're stating political B/S as usual. You yourself have stated that the system needs reforming. Of course local councils need funds to provide the various services, and your post forgets that you have also agreed on the outrageous salaries provided within these councils.

How many times have you stated that "Government contracts" are your pet hate? So you can display your hatred but anyone else showing their dislike not for the system itself but the stupidity within it and you run them down.

Bar stool preacher? Tell one and all.....after all the years you have worked why now to enter politics? You really are living in cloud cuckoo land if you think that you can invoke change. The system is too corrupt which makes me wonder as to why you are!

I agree Sirius, if Chris dearly would love to see change he'd need to step
away from the three main parties to see any chance of it ever happening.
There's no ideal wonder party out there but there are those who advocate
fundamental change to how the UK is managed/run. The three main political parties
are now very much dysfunctional in many ways and much of this has come about
by rendering themselves subservient to Brussels. To think that currently we
can't go Fracking in the UK unless we gain Brussels approval first. There's a rat
in the Brussels kitchen regarding Fracking, well I smell one anyway, and it
could be to do with controlling what price UK's Fracking energy can be discount priced
when sold within the UK.

Maybe, but I think there are bigger rats in Westminster. If Maggie had not been ousted by those treacherous Europhiles within her own party, she would have gone on to win another election.

Those four years would have made a big difference as to how we dealt with the EU today......

...and maybe, just maybe it would still be Great Britain and not "grate britain".

Well well, Statler and Waldorf are grouchy tonight aren't we!

Yup, we certainly are!! Fed-up waiting for you to do the right thing and jump
ship and leave that sinking LibDem ship for good. Their going to hit the rocks
but no need for you to be in their boat when it does.

Naw, rats only leave ships when they're sinking. With 17 months to go before that happens, the Right Honourable Sir Taffy will only jump when he's got enough from the ship.

We wont you to become progressive, get the youthful side of your character to
work towards something better than what the three have to offer. Are those three
ever going to be able to offer a "Better Britain", come on...we all know the
answer to this...lets not none of us here fool ourselves to the true answer.
Jump ship now or Sirius will call you nasty names, or worse, hit you over the
knuckles with one of his conkers.....ouch!!!

Her, like so many of her kind, fail to realise that these type actions show
they have no respect for individual people culture. Send this greeting to
a Muslim for instance and they could read this as, "Well you have no respect
for your own cultural beliefs so you'll most probably have no respect for mine"
What a strangely mixed up mind some people have today.

Yep, how can a holiday be happy as before you realise it, you have to return to work. Happy Xmas sounds and feels better.

Saying that though, have you ever known a politician to do anything that makes the country happy?

The sad face of modern politics.......

Cover-up at Cleggie's old school

"But many might think that the most shocking aspect of this case was the fact that Roland Peter Wright got away with it for so long when so many people were aware of the allegations about him."

Former minister faces sentencing on Monday

Probably get 18 months, be out in 9 and the taxpayer will pay for his cushy time inside!

Political Correctness gone mad

Ah for the day when the "PC" Brigade meet the BFG..........
