I received the following e-mail from the Deputy Prime Minister
Subject: Happy New Year
From: "Nick Clegg" <LIBDEMSFEDERAL@emarketing.etelligent.uk.com>
Date: Wed, December 29, 2010 7:14 am
Well what a year! A white-knuckle election; a new coalition government; Liberals in
power for the first time in 70 years.
I've recorded a short message reflecting on the events of 2010 and looking forward
to what Liberal Democrats will deliver in Government in 2011. Click on the link
below to watch it:
Some people will continue to predict the worst for our Party - the same people who
have been underestimating the Liberal Democrats for as long as we have existed.
But we prove them wrong at every single turn. The next twelve months will be no
different, because we will continue to build the liberal, fairer, greener Britain
that we all believe in.
Happy New Year!
Liberal Democrat leader
I'm a bit puzzled about the mail because when I think of Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrtic Party, happiness is probably the last emotion I feel :-((. I am also perturbed to note that they are continuing to build a "liberal, fairer, greener Britain that we all believe in". Since their return to power after 70 years, their actions seem to point towards a more repressive Britain where injustice and unfairness are the norm, and where ordinary, decent people are just lied to by their elected representatives.
