Weekly Poll Lowdown

Well it seems the Lib Dem conference is too boring to even comment upon. Only 4 of you voted and half of those people were either sarcastic or Lib Dem members when they said 'I love Lib Dem conferences. Why am I not there now?'. 

What do you think of the Lib Dem conference.

I was excited by the prospect of a by-election when Ed Davey was nearly killed by a falling sign.
I am a keen beard spotter so am watching every moment, but not for the politics.
I love Lib Dem conferences. Why am I not there now?

Total votes: 4

I think the Lib Dem conferences are pointless. Nothing really went on of any interest except Ed Davey getting attacked by a sign that fell over in the wind. I guess wind power is not as friendly as Ed wishes to make out.

The Lib Dem conference seemed to be focussed around two things this year. Firstly a 5p charge on carrier bags which is a terrible policy because this industry employs many people and doesn't solve the problem of a cleaner environment because those who throw litter will still be doing so. Also why is this suddenly a Lib Dem flagship policy it's not a vote winner but yet that was the only policy being talked about. Nobody will say in 2015 "I'm voting Lib Dem because I want to pay 5p for every carrier bag". Nick Clegg really needs to think more about saving his seats not coming up with pointless nonsense.

The new enemy of the state, those who use plastic bags to go shopping.

The other big story was the fact that Vince Cable, the Anti-Business Secretary, made a fuss by coming out as opposed to the Lib Dem leadership and its economic policies. Vince Cable has done bugger all in his job except slap more regulation on business and hike across the Indian Sub Continent in a desperate attempt to increase trade despite the EU tariffs. This is not the way to run a department if we're to grow the economy, create jobs and make everyone's lives better. Cable's policies are from the dark days of a command economy where everyone was equal, equally poor and abused by the state. It's a wonder he still has a job, please fire him Dave. 

Vince has caused great friction, not just with Conservatives but also with Nick Clegg and Danny Alexander who have enough brains to realise he will try for the leadership of the party and try take it to the left of Social Democracy. Both actions would destroy what's left of the party. But this may happen anyway due to the Lib Dems madly loving the good Dr just because he says that he alone predicted the crash. However this is not true because everyone could see a new recession coming apart from Gordon Brown*. I bet even Napoleon III predicted the crash, and he's been dead for over one hundred years. 

Dr Vince Cable looking down upon the mere people who must be controlled by a state run economy.

So there we are, a boring conference where the most major things were Ed Davey's near death experience, carrier bags becoming top Lib Dem priority and a mad and backward seventy year old man upsetting everyone. This picture of course makes everyone want to vote Lib Dem. I hope Seb realises soon the Lib Dem bird is dead. 


*If we are realistic he could see it coming too because he increased state spending to avoid small recessions in 2006 and 2007, which made the 2008 crash worse for the UK. Gordon just said stupidly "we have ended boom and bust".
