Merry Xmas 2012

I have not received a Xmas card this year from the Liberal Democrats which is a shame as they normally show a seasonal winter scene in Sheffield. It may have something to do with a Liberal Democrat canvasser who I spoke to earlier this year!. The Liberal Democrat party can't seem to get their collective heads around the fact that millions of people regard their continuing support of the Tory Party as an affront to democracy, justice and fairness. 

One look at the result of the recent Rotherham by-election reveals the parlous state of the party

  • Sarah Champion (Labour) 9,866 (46.25%, +1.62%)
  • Jane Collins (UKIP) 4,648 (21.79%, +15.87%)
  • Marlene Guest (BNP) 1,804 (8.46%, -1.96%)
  • Yvonne Ridley (Respect) 1,778 (8.34%)
  • Simon Wilson (Conservative) 1,157 (5.42%, -11.32%)
  • David Wildgoose (English Democrat) 703 (3.30%)
  • Simon Copley (Independent) 582 (2.73%, -3.58%)
  • Michael Beckett (Liberal Democrat) 451 (2.11%, -13.87%)
  • Ralph Dyson (TUSC) 261 (1.22%)
  • Paul Dickson (Independent) 51 (0.24%)
  • Clint Bristow (Independent) 29 (0.14%)
  • Labour majority 5,218 (24.46%)
  • 7.13% swing Labour to UKIP
  • Turnout: 21,330 (33.63%, -25.37%)
It was the lowest vote ever recorded by a major party in a by-election. It surely shows that the British people have totally turned against "Cleggism" and its diminishing band of adherents.

And so here is an old Xmas card from the 1930's that seems particular applicable at the momnet to the Liberal Democrats and their policies

Merry Xmas  - I don't think so!
