Labservative Democrats

The Lib Dems have launched a fictional political party called the Labservatives. The idea behind this new party is that Labour and the Conservatives are so similar in so many areas they are in fact one party. One of their slogans is "Scandal. Recession. War. There is no substitute for experience. Labservative, for more of the same." However, sometimes it is also hard to put a cigarette paper between the Lib Dems, Conservatives and Labour all on the centre-right of politics promoting free trade, privatisation, anti-trade union policies. Maybe the Labservatives would consider merging with the Liberal Democrats -- like the SDP and Liberals did before -- giving us the Labservative Democrats. I'm sure someone with a better grasp of Photoshop than me can do a good logo?

This post depicts absolutely nothing at all about the Green Party, this is completely just putting down the other parties. I'd rather much see the views of the Green Party and their policy than some hate news about each of the other parties. Don't hate unless you know where you're coming from.

Thanks for your comment. This is just one post out of many on my blog. If you were to look at the other posts you would see that I have been: campaigning to reopen a local pub, petitioning against cuts to Police Community Support Officers, working to safeguard local playing fields etc. Nationally the Green Party wants to create jobs, protect the NHS and is opposing cuts to public services.

Now Rob please tell me how in your post you didn't just mention two things that locally the Lib Dems were also on side for, I'll give you credit on the playing fields which you worked hard fighting against development, and those three national issues which could have come from any Party manifesto.

In contrast to that video of Ms. Lucas, I'll tell you what the Liberal Democrats stand for. A commitment to decentralisation and local voices on local services; realising that we need to have a loud voice on the international stage; a commitment to social justice and breaking down all barriers to any individual fulfilling their goals in life; that the free market is not infallable and we must intervene in the markets where necessary.

We have put forward bills in parliament for lobbying reform; the right to sack MP's; and on capping Party donations for them to be voted down by Labour and the Tories to abstain.

We have much common ground as two Parties that are against the status quo. But please stop stiring things up.
