The latest poll puts Labour up 4% at 40%, the Conservatives up 1% on 39% and the Lib Dems down 5% to 13%. It is hardly surprising that Labour is benefiting the most from the Lib Dem collapse, since most Lib Dem support is on the left of the political spectrum. The Lib Dems are in dissarray. I won't criticise Simon 'straight choice' Hughes too much, because when he started in politics, it was impossible to be openly gay and win elections. But he is in denial when he calls his homosexuality a mistake and his bare faced lies are not to his credit. What is it with the Lib Dems and dishonesty? Is it all the Janus-faced tactics of this duplicitous franchise of a party that have turned its MPs so hypocritical?
I say to any Lib Dem member, come and join the Labour party and tip the balance of membership behind proportional representation. Labour is the only party that can give us PR, with more social liberals inside the party, it may give us the impetus to getting a referendum on PR for the next general election.
