Claiming fame.

Quick browse of the BBC site and I noticed that there were two articles on the Lib Dems. Big PR day for them as none of them mentioned gays, drink or age.

1) Lib-Dems plan £1M home tax. Read here.
2) Sir Menzies wins vote on Trident. Read here.

Now I was curious about why something that appears to show Ming in a good light, him actually getting his own way on something in his own party has his name all over it. I think it means to show how in charge he is but I think it shows the opposite. For one a win is so rare that it is a news item. Two it can hardly be a major deal that he and his party are in agreement on something. It's not like they are taking a brand new path. Everything they are doing is the usual tried and failed stuff.
Which brings me neatly on to the second item. This is more like what we expect from our politicians. More tax. A quick look makes it look like it's going to impact the super rich but it's going to hit a lot of middle class people more particularly in the well hammered SE. Of course Ming's name seems to be missing from that one. It's almost as if he wants to be personally popular.

The Lib Dems are pretty irrelevant now.

They are not liberals when all they want to do is raise taxes. At this rate they will be wiped out in the South at the next election.
