Tory and Lib Dems Betray Their Voters and Their Principles
The Conservative and Liberal Democratic parties have betrayed many of their principles and their voters by simply throwing away many of their core policy points in a desperate rush to seize office.
A large number of important election promises upon which both parties strenuously campaigned have now been thrown onto the rubbish heap.
* The Liberal Democrats have abandoned their election promise to introduce a special tax on properties costing more than £2 million (Mr Cameron was personally worried about that one).
* The Liberal Democrats have abandoned their opposition to the Tory’s £6 billion in public spending cuts this year.
* The Liberal Democrats have agreed to support the scrapping of part of next year's one percent National Insurance tax rise.
* The Liberal Democrats have abandoned their opposition to renewal of the Trident nuclear deterrent.
* The Liberal Democrats have agreed that no further powers should be given the EU without a referendum.
* The Liberal Democrats have abandoned their demand that Britain join the euro currency.
* The Conservative Party has abandoned its election promise to raise the inheritance tax threshold to £1 million.
* The Conservative Party has agreed to Lib Dem plans to raise the point at which people start paying tax to £10,000, although this will be phased in.
* The Conservative Party has thrown away its opposition to a referendum on the voting system and the introduction of fixed-term parliaments, which they previously opposed.
On the important issue of immigration, the Liberal Democrats have abandoned their mad policy plan to grant illegal immigrants asylum and have agreed with the Tory’s pathetic “cap on immigration” policy which actually means that current levels of immigration will continue.
Nick Clegg and David Cameron have been exposed as unprincipled scoundrels with this ruthless betrayal of their core policies.
The British public can therefore expect to see further policies and programmes launched for which they did not vote.
