There's a Blog Tag For That

Hey, at least with Labour you know what you're getting - bans or restrictions on everything which doesn't fit with their ethos (or which their privileged top table don't care for), plus more bans and restrictions thrown in for good measure.

The problem occurs when you have a party with 'Liberal' in the name. You see, some people may actually believe that they are truly liberal, when the reality is that they have long since given up on their classic liberal history and now just cannot resist the delicious prospect of inflicting their personal intolerances on the whole of the country.

Like this, for example, and the further ludicrous bans proposed in the comments (barbecues, I kid you not).

Shouldn't the Lib Dems just come clean now and admit that they're plain, old-fashioned Social Democrats, and not in any way qualified to carry the torch of liberalism?

Anything else is just electoral fraud.

The dismissal of factions like Liberal Vision as somehow being entryist cranks is particularly startling too.

A point I made elsewhere today, let's drive 'em off the word by parking our caravans on it. We can start with calling for liberal gun laws.

Trooper Thompson said...

Dick, if you were mining for cunts, you hit the motherlode. I read on with incredulity...

Dick Puddlecote said...

Trooper: It's a rich seam indeed. I left it alone earlier today in the hope that a few more liberals might turn up and save the trouble of my pointing it out.

Unfortunately, there don't appear to be many true 'liberals' in the Lib Dems, oddly enough.

I'm watching it like an angler, to see if Sesenco bites. I've no idea who he is, but I can hear his shrill, hectoring voice ringing in my ears.

SadButMadLad said...

Just do a google on "sesenco". He seems a bit of nutter from his postings on various forums.

JuliaM said...

He's barking up the wrong tree too, if this minor news story is anything to go by:

"Smoking shelters for patients, visitors and staff have been reintroduced at two south coast hospitals.

Trust managers were forced into the u-turn because of safety issues around the number of people defying the five-year-old smoke-free policy."

And from Sesenco:

Reading the outpourings of these nicotine fanatics is rather like having to glance through the ravings of holocaust deniers.

Par for the course with the righeous.

Demonise ,punish,vilify,exclude.
Sounds more like the Nazi doctrine than a Liberal one to me.

Dick Puddlecote said...

TFE: Yes, some fun and games over there, eh? It's amusing to see a raving statist claim to be 'libertarian' while describing a true liberal from his own party, Jock, an anarchist.

The Lib Dem party has a collective schizophrenia running right through it.

@JuliaM - I've heard of a number of hospitals doing this although they won't be making a song and dance about it.

Anon: I'm pretty sure that's not the same guy.

I dont allow my grandchildren to
go anywhere near Liberals.The sexual preferences,personal hygene
and sordid backgrounds leave a lot
to be desired.
Coming from a mixed Labour /Tory
base the Liberals allways came over
as untrustworthy and pointless.
Respect for any LIB/DEM politician
is way beyond my comprehension.

Well at least Jock seems to be doing a good job of filleting that cunt and his brain-dead dribblings...

Mark Wadsworth said...

Why is the idea of banning barbecues so surprising?

Don't forget that the Lib Dems were cheerleaders for the EU imposed idea that gas fired patio heaters should be banned.

Has nobody else noticed that you most garden centres no longer stock these any more? (whereby my first hand experience is restricted to Homebase and B&Q).

Mac the Knife said...

I'm definately a fan of Sesenco, what a genuinely charming personality.

Tolerant, liberal and fun loving; truly a well-rounded and balanced human being.

If Nu-Labour hadn't provided him with his very own minority to abuse, do you think he might have simply exploded?

You see, some people may actually believe that they are truly liberal

Like me. I voted for the bastards for years and years.
