That was the message from Gideon at the dispatch box yesterday. He is unwilling to take the action needed as he thinks it will terminate the coalition, generate a vote of confidence which the government would lose and usher in Labour. I would view that as the best option. There is a market saying, the first loss is the least loss. The by-elections have shown Labour will win the next election hands down. Why not just accept that and put them back in on the very sticky wicket they created. It would completely destroy the LibDems as a parliamentary party which would do our country no end of good and rid us of that EU loving rabble.
The country needs huge cuts in public spending. Why not start with the £10bn plus overseas aid budget. Ditch this ridiculous LibDem obsession with hugely expensive 'Green' energy. UK industry needs cheap energy now!
To continue the cricket metaphor, in the era of uncovered pitches beloved of GB, the greatest Yorkshireman of all time in his opinion, a Test captain declared whilst his side was well behind on a sticky wicket so the other side would have to bat in these impossible conditions. It was a great idea until the opposition captain said what if I also declare and you have to play your second innings on this pitch. Dave should declare now and put Red Ed in. He ideally not have batted first.
That is the situation Dave is in. I remember Merv King saying of course after he had been re-appointed as Governor that the next election would be a very bad election to win but the Tories after 13 years of Tony and Gordon the Tories were desperate. They grabbed the poisoned challice and added extra LibDem hemlock to the poisonous brank and drank it down in one as they do in the Bullingdon Club.
So Labour win, the LibDems are wiped out UKIP is seen to be irrelevant and the Tories are down to a South of England and shires rump of less than 200 MPs. Labour would still struggle inScotland but they would have a majority of English MPs for the first time ever. We would be in for 5 years of unalloyed gloom a bit like under Atlee possibly with rationing, exchange controls all approved by the EU of course.
And what of the UK in the EU. For sure Red Ed will do all he can to avoid a referendum but as economic conditions worsen pressure will build and there will be an inevitable explosion. That will be UKIP's chance but of course they will not have put in place the structures to exploit this shambles. They will as always have been concentrating on supping in the bars and bordellos of Brussels.
It will be as Lenin said of the 1917 Russian revolution, power was lying in the gutter and he just picked it up. EUKIP are already in the gutter but not of our country but the gutters of Brussels EUKIP will be incapable of standing on their own their feet and returning to the UK as Lenin did to Russia. EUKIP are totally dependent on EU handouts. They are incapable of surving without the EU.
It would be a very fluid chaotic situation conducive to rapid radical change and I would not be surprised to see the EU put an army of occupation into our country invited of course by our Europhile quislings in the House of Lords as Hitler was invited into The Sudentland. What would the British Army, assuming it still exists, do in that situation? What will our monarch do? Be prepared? I doubt it.
Those who have prepared and are organised in the UK will triumph in this scenario as Hitler did in Germany in the early 1930s. Under Farage's frequent purges UKIP's structure in the UK is fallling apart so whoever copmes out on top it won't be EUKIP.
