    Vince Cable defends contact with Milliband.

    Please go here folks.

    http://uk.news.yahoo.com/cable-defends-contact-miliband-073152771.html

    Could this be the very first signs of a possible Lib-Dem / labour coalition. ?

    Will Ed Milliband even consider such a proposition ?

    Does anybody believe for one moment that Labour will win the next general election with a massive majority making the Lib-Dems not fit for purpose ?

    What's your view folks ?

    I don't think we should read too much into this as Vince Cable is a shrewd and able rabble-rouser whenever he wants to be.

    Just the idea that this kind of a deal could be done has been just presented to - as we say - "frighten the horses" and is not really anything that will fly while the present coalition remains together.

    Personally, I believe, that any possible Lib/Lab pact that might be done, if required, at the next general election might be a better fit than this awful Con-Dem pact is at the moment, or ever will be.

    I actually think - as you did ask the question Ivanhoe - that the next government will be made up of a fully-formed singularity that will be made up of a TRUE Labour Party, under Miliband, that will have the needs of all of the people of Britain in the forefront of their minds.

    There is going to be NO ROOM for any biased Tory administration, and the Liberal Democrats will still be far too weak to go it alone after the cock-ups they have made while in tow with the Tories.

    Ivanhoe, were you asleep during Labour's last time in power? You seem to have missed a toothless FSA, relaxed banking rules, the selling off of our gold reserves at a historic low to feed disastrous social engineering policies, an open door immigration system and a belief that a property bubble was self-sustaining.

    Oh, let's not forget Blair's sycophantic approach to the worst republican administration since Nixon, including signing us up to a war under questionable motives.

    The hideous banking speculation came about under Labour, despite repeated warnings about toxic debt. Northern Rock, RBS, Lloyds Brown-enforced takeover of HBOS riddled with US sub-prime morgages. The list goes on, and on, and on.

    The Tories may be almost as bad, but if a Labour government is the only option, the aim must be to finish off ruining the country.

    Labour are not the solution. They were, and continue to be, part of the problem.

    Papa, I think Vince Cable is merely getting his foot in the door for when Clegg is ousted.

    And regarding Labour, I like to think you are right, but knowing the British people are largely fickle politically, I would not put it past the electrate next time round to give us all another hung Parliament.

    Ivanhoe........ You may be right there and I guess we will not know until the result of the next GE.

    Clapco.....

    It is obvious that you do not really pay attention to what Ivanhoe and I say as far as the last NEW-LABOUR government is concerned, as both of us know that Blair's government had nothing whatsoever to do with true Labour values because it was a very poor copy of the Tory Party.

    It is now time when the next government will put aside all of the dogmatic ideas that have driven the past two governments so that at last and eventually we will have a government that will consider ALL of the people of Britain before it does what it will have to do.

    The British people are sick to the back teeth of selfishness and greed and the protection of the people that rip-us-off daily and get away with it and now they want a government that will act on behalf of their needs and not the needs of the rich and powerful people that have in the past paid directly for what they get from government.

    In other-words it is time that the "quid-pro-quo" practices were stopped and the people that we elect to look after our requirements do that job without fear or favour in the future.

    And yet you continue to tar Cameroon and his 'New Tories' with the Thatcher brush.

    You can try to disown Bliar as much as you like - he is still down in the records as 'Labour'. All your true Labour mates are dead - the world has moved on. Stop trying to turn the clocks back. Millipede, Bollocks n co are from the same mould.

    No mate, anyone who knows anything about politics knows that New-Labour had very little to connect it with what Blair would have called "Old-Labour". In fact, in his term of office the word "Socialism" was a swear-word that must not be used at any time.

    THAT....is the difference and the sentient ones among us know this !

    Cameron is an honest and dyed-in-the-wool Thatcherite and again, any one who knows anything about politics will know this too.
