A good piece by Peter Oborne names these slime and outlines their duplicity'
Wedgie Benn put it thus. There are two types of politician. The vast majority are weathervanes who change direction with the prevailing political wind, Kinnock is a prime example.Much, much rarer are signposts, Jeremy Corbin etc who point in the same direction year after year. You therefore know what these politicians stand for. Who knows what David Cameron stands for? It changes so often.
You can call Jezza nasty names but he is not a hypocrit like Cameron. Vote for Jezza and you know what you are getting. Vote for Clegg/Cameron and you will get what suits their own self interests at the time.. Ask the students!.
This is why we see the dichotomy in all political parties between the grassroots and their MPs. Right now it is especially noticeable in the Tories and Labour parties. There are two few LibDems to bother about! It is different in the SNP where their leadership clearly represents the members views. That is why they will continue to succeed.
LibLabCon lies to the ordinary party workers only to renege on their promises when they get their bums on the green leather will eventually destroy our democracy.
