Liberal-Democrats sign up to Thatcherism
It's common knowledge that just thinking about Margaret Thatcher gives Tony Blair a thumping great blue-veiner; after all it was under his watch that the statue to the rancid creature was erected in the House of Commons' lobby. However it has now emerged that the Liberal-Democrats' leader Nick Clegg also likes to give himself one with the wrist at the mention of her name. How else do we explain the recent interview in which he nailed his party's colours firmly to the economic liberal mast? By promising cuts of 100% and praising Thatcher's anti-working class policies to the high heavens, Clegg laid to rest the myth that there is anything to choose between the three main parties.
The only thing that ordinary people can do as a gesture of protest is either vote for a minority party or not vote at all.
