I just can't work out these Lib Dems. The SNP are easy. They are a one trick pony with right wing tendencies but no real political philosophy so they will do anything to keep power, anything. The Lib Dems however, give out this cuddly, woolly, all things to all people stuff but no substance.
Then I hear this tale. At a recent community meeting (not in my area), a senior Lib Dem was asked why they had cut the funding to the 5 community newspapers that formed the Edinburgh Community Newspaper Trust destroying years of work and a service to 170,000 people in one single act?
His answer: "we didn't like what they were writing". Yes, you read correctly; "we didn't like what they were writing". That's it. The death of the community news papers was because their words were unacceptable to the Lib Dems .
Stalin would have been proud of them, as would all the other tyrants who have believed (wrongly) over the years that power is best kept by censoring criticism.
