(not satire – it’s the Lib Dems!)
Two years ago I would have been surprised to learn there could be any connection between the supposedly centrist Liberal Democrat Party and the far-right English Democrats.
But since then, the Lib’ Dem’s full support of the right-wing Tory agenda in the coalition has changed my opinion and now I see them very much as a party on the right of the UK political spectrum.
Still – it’s a bit of a shock to learn the extremist English Democrat candidate in the Eastleigh by-election is a former Liberal Democrat constituency party chairman and election agent.
Looks like I need to be shifting the Lib Dems even further to the right on the spectrum – somewhere around where the right-wing of the Tory Party and the left-wing of the BNP meets.
Maybe the Tories, UKIP, BNP, English Democrats and the Lib’ Dem’s should form an electoral pact at the next general election?
