With Jo's voting record is it any wonder she would prefer a right winger from the Thatcher government to be caretaker PM rarther than a left wing socialist.

Unfortunately you can be rest assured that for the moment May did sufficient damage in not achieving 'a' Brexit that polling suggests we will repeat the 2010 and 2017 elections (Lab get a feeble 230 but Lib get enough to keep us around 310). While we might pull some extra Brexit Party voters, so probably will Labour from the Greens and Lib Dem's.

Jo Swinson is a whiny idiot who is wrong about everything. I feel sorry for her children. They’re probably going to grow up and be ’gender-fluid’ or something

And what is wrong with that? Good for them if that's how they feel. Your children would simply grow up very confused before coming out to your surprise and denial.

Whats wrong with that? Well nothing I guess another party that pretends to care for the poor and needy in society while creating and voting for polices that will cause them harm. Good old liberals least they are consistent, in the late 1970s it was the Liberals democratic party under David Steel who broke the Lab-Lib Pact which began the fall of the then Labour government. They voted with Margaret Thatcher to bring down the Labour government in the no-confidence debate in 1979 which led to 18 years of Conservative government. The liberals were no friends of the left then and they are no friends of the left now.

Whats wrong with that, well if they was honest that they and vote for disability, welfare cuts, for the bedroom tax ,etc. No wonder Jo wants a monument to Margaret Thatcher!

Unelectable

Blimey. So you are saying the Lib Dems are unelectable because of what they did in the 70s and 80s. Gosh!

It would be difficult to think of anyone who is definitely left wing compared to Jeremy Corbyn.

"left wing" and "right wing" aren't meaningful insults.

Last time I checked the disability, welfare cuts, for the bedroom tax cuts I mentioned that they supported was not in the 70's and 80's.

You have already put up a strawman about what "right winger"s represent.

Oh I'm prepared to debate that, absolutely it's not a strawman and it's not an insult. The traditional right wing are funded by the wealthy and the polices they implement have disproportionately negative effect on the poorest.

That's no strawman my friend - over to you

Comrade, what you describe is not an inherently "right-wing" thing.

The Gini index score for China, Vietnam, and Laos are actually worse than the United Kingdom's.

That's right because we had a period of socialism in the UK from the end up f the second wold war untill around 1979. In this period wealth was distributed a little more fair, slum were knocked down, unions gain power and workers stated earning a liveable wage.

I am speaking about UK poltics and the traditional right wing in the UK believe in corporate freedom, individual responsibility and the traditional left believe in employment regulations, group responsibility. To name but two.

That is fact

The yellow tories seem to have an open door to all who share their brexit stance. A single issue party or a party that really is close to the conservatives anyway? I think the latter it's very easy for a Tory to join the anti-democratic iliberal party because in general they are one of the same.

I can see them welcoming in Rory Stewart and Sam Gyinah with open arms. Philip Hammond f might be s but hard to swallow though!

They’re like a populist party for the establishment. Who are they going to support next? Jeffery Epstein?

It's always fun when the otherwise-baffled suddenly realise the Liberal Democrats aren't socialists. The clue's in the name, guys!

I think the rather stranger proposition would be if an avowedly liberal party was to do anything to put someone who is effectively a Communist into government. It would be the end of them, and rightly so.

For eight of the past ten years, Jo Swinson has been a Member of Parliament. For five of them, she was a member of a party in the Coalition Government. For three of those five years, she was a Minister in that Coalition Government. That she supported the Coalition Government and voted with it should be a surprise to no-one.

Yet we have virtually all become far wealthier and life has been made far easier by the fruits of economic progress.

Public spending as a proportion of GDP peaked during the Second World War, as you might expect. But it's worth noting that, post-war, even Attlee's government's spending as a proportion of our economy was more or less where it is now. It then dropped in the 1950s, before surging back up in the 1970s.

The reality of that post-war period in the UK is that we had a state that was far less supportive of its citizens than now. Even in terms of employment rights, let's consider the increase in employment rights that has occurred since the 1970s. For one, we can look at the far, far fewer people are dying in the workplace. Or that there is a now a regulated National Minimum Wage. Employment rights and decent working conditions are not the sole preserve of the left.
