Okay. I forgive him.
When he says that the Liberal Democrats didn't keep all their promises (referring to their election manifesto), I'm really interested in knowing what promises exactly they did keep?
I'm really interested in knowing if they made any manifesto pledges that they actually did keep? At all?
Too long. Too many promises, they couldn't have failed in them all, surely?
Their financial ones included:
I'm just too ignorant.
Q: What does Clegg stand for?
A: Cameron coming into the room.
I dislike him slightly less since he apologised. Still wouldn't vote for him though.
I'm really not sure what he expected his apology to achieve. People aren't pissed at him because they feel jilted, they're pissed because he sold them out. As long as he remains in government, he's going to continue selling them out.
The more you shout about something, the more we expect you to actually perform the task in question. The tuition fees debacle was just their most notable casualty in their bid to be relevant in UK politcs for once.
But if he doesn't sell out, how will he remain in government?
At the next general election, he'll be out anyway, if only because many Lib Dem voters are likely to vote Labour instead.
A lot depends on how credible Labour looks in 2 years.
Well done on Clegg for crystallising UK politics into a near-binary state in England. It seems that the Lib Dems aren't their own party and will compromise any principle they once held dear to get into power.
Oh. Come now. Clegg hasn't done that. It was more polarized 30, 40 years ago.
There's always the chance that he could pick up some centre-leaning Tory voters, although unless he grows something like a spine I wouldn't expect it to be enough to off-set his losses.
More polarised, but not necessarily as binary. There were much stronger divisions within both major parties, particularly at the rank-and-file level of the Labour Party.
Well, true. Now it's similar politics in two-and-a-half different colours, but at least that's not as bad as ME3's original ending.
Separate names with a comma.
