Cameron’s feeble attempt to woo Lib Dem voters

I’m astounded by David Cameron’s pitiful attempts to “woo Liberal Democrats” to the Tory cause.  Clearly worried that a hung parliament is on the cards at next year’s general election, he’s stated “…between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats there is a lot less disagreement than there used to be.”

Cameron couldn’t be more wrong. Unlike the Lib Dems, he and his Tory party have no concept of what a fair Britain should look like. The Conservatives seem content to cut taxes for millionaires, while the Lib Dems would remove income tax for the lowest earners in the country (saving all those who earn less than £10,000 a year from paying a penny in tax).

Lib Dem voters (and indeed the wider electorate) will not be fooled by this wolf in sheep’s clothing who on one hand claims he wants “a fair fight” at the next election then with the other tries to cynically deceive the electorate by claiming that there is not much difference between the Conservatives and the Lib Dems.

Don’t be fooled by Cameron and his upper crust Tory cronies, they are playing clever games. Cameron claims he wants a fair Britain, but there’s a world apart between Tory “fair” and our fair.

I’m flabbergasted at what Cameron tried to do: make the public believe that there aren’t many differences between the Lib Dems and the Tories and scaremongering our supporters into voting for them under the pretence that a hung parliament would be “bad for Britain”.

While I agree that a hung parliament is not ideal, a Tory or Labour government would definitely be “bad for Britain”. Our country needs Nick Clegg and Vince Cable involved in the next government, if it takes a hung parliament for that to happen – I’m happy.

    Tut tut – aren’t the Lib Dems naughty. The Tories of course would never publish a ‘deceitful’ bar chart would they – that’s why they have every right to claim the moral high ground. But wait, what’s this?

    It really is about time that Labour and the Tories stopped trying to pretend that they fight every election with nothing but fairness in mind and would never stoop to base electioneering in their lives. It’s pathetic. There’s no party in the world that doesn’t resort to ‘dirty tricks’ and it’s about time the Tories and Labour ceased attempting to pull the wool over people’s eyes that they’re whiter than white (as the expenses scandal has so aptly demonstrated that they are very far from being).

    A bit rich for a Liberal Democrat to complain about tactical voting, given the long and deceitful history of bar charts that you use…
