If you voted LibDem, do you sleep at night?

Since the General Election, I have watched the Lib Dems with a mixture of shock, amusement (that's long gone now), shame and disgust.

- unquestioning slavery to the savage Tory cuts agenda
- cuts to welfare benefits, that hit the most vulnerable in society
- the end of new social housing...well done Lib Dems, you've managed to achieve what the Blitz couldn't!
- and now the bare faced betrayal of a pledge on tuition fees

I have to admit, I almost voted Lib Dem. I was disillusioned with Labour (my normal choice) and was quite impressed with Alex Feakes the LibDem candidate, when he knocked on my door. Thankfully for my conscience (and for my sleep), I didn't vote for them in the end.

Amongst all the cynicism there is about British politics, there did at least used to be a slightly warm feeling that the Lib Dems may be a bit hopeless, but at least they were a nice bunch. Not anymore!! What a bunch of lying, two-faced power grabbing b******s.
