Milibandwagon is unhappy about a lot of Tory polices….
guess what? So am I as a Liberal Democrat.
But if the choice is (and it was) between the tories doing what we dont like with or without the Libems…. OR the tories doing some things we dont like BUT getting LibDem polcies through as well, then I for darn sure know which I’d choose……
and fyi…. some of them include; More free childcare for under 2s than ever before, more help for the kids that need it at primary school through the pupil premium, summer schools (that just started right now) to give kids who need it a kick start into high school, more apprenticeship places than ever before for 16-18 year olds, a guarantee for 18-24 year old that they have a place to earn or learn through the youth contract, taking 3million low earners and part time workers out of income tax altogether, putting £700 a year back into the pockets of every worker in the country earning above £10,000 a year, triple locking pensions for the elderly (including the biggest ever pension increase in the history of the country), clamping down on the top 350,000 most wealthy individuals in the country to make sure they dont avoid taxes due in the UK, etc etc etc ….
I could go on, but I hope you get my point. If the price of all these Liberal Democrat achievements is letting the Tories do what they would have done with or without us, then Ed Milibandwagon is totally wrong and the Liberal Democrats ABSOLUTELY RIGHT
