But This Time We Really Really Mean It
With a smarmy opportunism worthy of Britain's dead-baby-waving Head Boy, the erstwhile Deputy Conservatives are seeking to posture as the party of righteous indignation over a campaign fought on lies. The Liberal Democrats know a thing or two about mendacity; and while their example in office may not have been the original inspiration for the Farage Falange, it certainly helped to rub in the lesson that pledging and delivering are two very different and mutually independent processes. The leader of the Lib Dems' shattered, sagging rump has declared that the party can provide a "safe space" for voters who want an inclusive, moderate and economically competent party which spent five years conniving with the Bullingdon Club at the pillaging of the state on behalf of the squillionaire class. How safe that snug vacuity will become should the Lib Dems ever get to play electoral kingmaker is, like everything else these days, anyone's guess.
