Kennedy in the Golden dozen

Featured on Liberal Democrat Voice I was more than a little gobsmacked-that's is if you can have degrees of gobsmackedness-to have featured in the Top of the Blogs Golden Dozen merely for posting Charles Kennedy's review of Nick Clegg's year. Whisper if gently but he does have sort of a point -namely that the cock-ups and miscalculations have come from the higher reaches of the party. Maybe listening a tad less dismissively  to the party faithfully would be a good plan B. Most of the big policy screw-ups, the Health Bill, Student fees and the inflexibility over Plan A -have been sanctioned by those who have sought to take the party off in a direction 'against the grain' of membership. That tiny minority who want a European style pro market, pro business centre party  do not understand that the political structures in Britain ( that is without PR) cannot support their ambitions. For most of us we still march to the same drum beat that we have for decades-to realign the left.

Post a Comment

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
