LibDem Conmen Should Be Expelled From Parliament

with 10 comments

Liars, Conmen And Cheats

I support the tuition fee proposals.  They seem very fair to me and I can’t see that any prospective student can have any complaint about the terms offered.

However, if you’re an MP and before the election you signed a pledge to vote against any increase in tuition fees then you have no choice.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a minister or if the economic situation is worse than you thought it was.  This is black and white.  It’s clear cut.  There can be no argument.  If you break your signed commitment then you have to go.

If you seek to evade your commitment or fudge the issue then you compound your crime.  And I see no reason why it should not be a crime.  In civil law it is a clear breach of contract but it is much more serious than that.  It is obtaining a seat in parliament on false pretences.  It wasn’t a vague promise made in the heat of the election campaign.  It was a written agreement.

Nick Clegg, Vince Cable and all their cronies who have broken their word should be frogmarched out of parliament and charged with criminal deception.  They should all go to jail.  Not for a long time.  Six months will do but each and every one of them is a proven liar, conman and cheat.  They have no honour.

Unless parliament takes this action to preserve its integrity, then its reputation will sink even lower.  It sets the most appalling example to the country and any MP who allows this scandal to persist without action is an accessory after the fact.

Shame on you, you weak and pathetic cowards.  You disgrace yourselves and our country.

  2. not suprised same as the promise both camerom and clegg made, regarding medical cannabis, they said they would be giuded by sience, not try and eliminate the sientists. LIES FROM THE START. If mps make a false statement they should loose there position instantly.

  4. I too support the fees change, but I dont agree with you at all on your point concerning MP’s. I understand the concept of lying to gain a vote, but I much rather that the right decision is made when in Government than being held to vote grabbing, uninformed statements made during an election, especially made by a party that did not expect to gain power. It is very damaging for a party to fail to meet its pre election promises, but this should be managed purely by the loss of trust the voter would have for the party in the future. I am certain that the LIB DEMS will be more careful what they promise in the future. To threaten the law to keep a promise for a decision that maytbe better informed when in government would be a disaster>

  6. “I support the tuition fee proposals. They seem very fair to me and I can’t see that any prospective student can have any complaint about the terms offered.”

    Except for ELQ students, who aren’t eligible for loans and will therefore have to find, up-front, 9k a year plus living costs for the entire duration of the course. But who cares about them, anyway? Selfish gits. All that nonsense about ‘retraining’ and becoming ‘productive members of society.’ Pah.

  7. It means in summary students don’t get further funding for a qualification of lower value than the qualification they already have. It probably means that some students may have to do their professional exams whilst working. Normal for accountants, lawyers and most professions but a nolvetly for teachers apparently.

  8. If the Lib Dems were elected to run the country they clearly stated what they would do including signing a pledge to vote against any increase in tuition fees.

    The Lib Dems were not elected to run the country. Neither were any other party. Therefore a coalition was formed with a new “coalition manifesto”. Some parts came from the Lib Dems; some from the Conservatives; and some were a mixture of the two.

    As with all politically astute people I am quite sure you are aware of this, and I for one, am fed up with reading nonsense like this.

    • No Julia, I completely disagree with you. This is duplicity and you are supporting it! Each individual LibDem candidate signed a pledge that if they were elected they would vote against an increase in tuition fees. They were elected and some have now cheated on their promise in a way that amounts to fraud and deception, nothing less.

      The pledge wasn’t “If the LibDems form a government” (It would have been meaningless to make such a plege anyway because there was no realistic prospect of them gaining a majority). The pledge was “If I am elected”.

      Vince Cable and Cameron’s poodle are liars, cheats and conmen. They should be expelled from parliament.
