Time for a change. Nope, not these..

Just looking through the news and I notice that the Lib Dems seem to be coming out with lots of new policies like this on a tax reduction for juice, this on protests over the state of politics and this on health plans all in the last few days.

The new leader, Glecc or something, seems to be working hard on making quite a few policies and making a stand which is good but does anyone ever see the Lib Dems getting anywhere near being the shadow government never mind the real one.

Does anyone actually know anyone who has voted for these people? People seem too embarrassed to actually admit they vote for the Lib Dems yet people admit they voted labour. I'm trying to work out if that makes them smarter or dumber.

Anyway I watch all this activity and looking at the proposals it is clear that despite having a proactive leader only idiots would vote for them with those policies and all the idiots are currently voting for labour. So what is the point of the all this work, sorry, maybe the question should be what us the point of the Lib Dems?

Well, I was thinking maybe they are actually there just to provide a distraction from the two main parties at key times. To provide an alternative from the two main parties to soak up the protest voters and keep them away from other viable parties. It's the only thing I can think of as clearly they are certainly not a viable government nor by the looks of things will they ever be.

I think this new Libertarian party is still worth a look though. With the current disgust over our political class then maybe now is the time. I hope so.
