    Actually you say your propping up the Tory's in government?
    Well as a True blue I wish we had gone back to the people & seen how many liberal candidates there would have been? weren't you bust after the last election? didn't the tories actually throw you a life line?
    Didn't Labour offer you the same lifeline? if your party think's the Tories are that bad why didn't you join up with Labour.
    Why is it in many cities the Liberal vote has collapsed & the Labour vote has gone up yet the Tory vote stays strong?
    I would rather vote UKIP than vote for a k++s my european arse Liberal party
    Yes. Labour did offer the LibDems the choice of joining them to form a coalition government, but I guess that Clegg felt more at home working with another millionaire, public school boy. I imagine that they have a lot more in common."

IT made me smile when reading a letter from Conservative, Colin Smith where he appears to be supporting the UKIP!

He writes that the Liberal Democrats are on the fringe of non-existence. I would remind him that his Conservatives are being propped up by the coalition with the Liberal Democrat.

Locally the Conservatives continue with the in-fighting at New Milton, New Forest District where for example one Tory stood as an Independent.

Another slapping a candidate, where they had won!

I admit that in the New Forest, the Lib/Dems are thin on the ground and I suggest to readers in the area, if you wish to remove the Conservatives do take action.

It is no good sitting tight hoping others will.

However across the country, the Liberal Democrats are still strong and unlike Mr Smith’s prediction, I suggest because of the poor following for the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats should do well at the next General Election.

The Conservatives had a poor result last time, when they should have created a landslide, however the public quite rightly decided not to trust them.
