I cannot make the chap out no matter how hard I try:
Lets hops he does a better job here answering your Q's than he did with Farage'.
I know he is half Dutch but he did stick his clog in that one.
Good looking boy, probably the house wives Fav, but it is what is on the table that counts.
I see him a bit like the cheese with the holes in, you seem to want some taste and flavour and a little bite.
All you end up with is a rubbery palate and sunken holes.
He is hardly Paddy Ashdown, but then those were the days.
I am a Lib Dem and a party member but I will be voting UKIP This time round, until the Yellow Doves pull their fingers out.

As the beliefs of the Lib Dems and the beliefs of UKIP are about as far apart as you can get I'm afraid I find what you say very hard to believe! No self respecting Lib Dem - and a Party member at that - would ever in a million years vote for UKIP.

Have to agree with you Reg. I've never known a lib dem to nail their colours to anything. But I still like the original idea - but it was not supposed to be a ping ball, more a party of strength, decision and power! Or was that a speech defect party dream?

Yes I have noticed Angry Of Snobby Land and Reggie 47 back on the scene shooting the usual c**p across the bows.
Now Reggie 47 you puzzle me? I take it, its Reggie born in 1947? Well what a life you have had? Born 2 years after the war, were you the proverbial conjugal right of the common man after his fight for king and co against the hum? You were 20 in 1967 during the swinging 60's jobs galore! Mini skirts included free spirit liberty. The 70's much of the same Ford Capri included. Loads of money boom in the 80's You were 40 well up the promo ladder by then? OK I will give it to you 4 recessions during your working life was not much fun. But then drawing the rock and role was easy as reading your post threads. You are now 67 Reggie 47 drawing that fat juicy state pension that I am paying for yes us the kids of the 60's. We are the ones that will have to toil to 67 before we get sweet f**K all, which is what is beckoning us at this rate. If you know your politics I am a child of Jeremy Thorpe and his Liberal politics was not far removed from Nigey Farage. Never mind hey I am just going to watch my re run of the Romanian guy the other night who does pick pocketing for 50k a year and has a good life with the Chelsea brigade at night. I wont be renewing my Yellow Card this year.

Agreed.

Why did he allow Conservative to get the power, when his party and beliefs are more in tune with traditional Labour?
But then, why did Labour become modern Conservative?

Sometimes part of me thinks it might have been better in the long term, if Gleggie and the rest of his flip flop mates had teamed up with Gordon - someone tell me what's happening now - Brown. That way the inevitable disaster would have been so great, it would have put both out of contention for long enough for a strong Tory government to put thing right. Of course, eventually a new generation of tree hugging lefties, ignorant of why the U.K. version of socialism can't work, will vote in some new gang of incompetents - and the cycle will start again. But at least by then Balls should be even more incapable of making this great nation bust.
