"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Sneaky Law Change

A new, no doubt expensively designed logo is on the way for mayoral and local council elections after the government sneaked through a change in the law to allow a candidate representing two Parties to use a combination logo. Measures will soon be going through the Commons to allow the same rules for General Elections.

This isn't just about a logo though; it has more to do with allowing 'peace pacts' between Conservative and LibDem candidates at the next election with one of them standing as a Coalition candidate.

The Westminster Executive is pinning its hopes of re-election in 2015 on a turnaround in the economy creating a surge of goodwill towards them but I wouldn't bet on it. Any turnaround in the economy will have been made on the backs of taxpayers and cuts in living standards so the electorate may well decide to vote elsewhere. UKIP/BNP anyone?

I suggest either this:

or this:



  1. Well spotted GV. I think in the end they want,

    A sterile politically correct(ed) monoculture=CPUK=EUSSR=CCCP.

    The first gulag will be in Anglesey.

  2. Yes, that makes sense, Incoming. I wouldn't be surprised to see the LibDems eventually split into left/right factions - some joining Labour and the others the Conservatives. Just another way of narrowing the voting choice.
