LIBERAL DEMOCRATS FACING REVOLT OF VOTERS IN THE NEXT ELECTION – In a poll commissioned by Lord Ashcroft, a once huge financial supporter of the Conservative Party has found that less than 1 in 3 of Liberal Democrat voters would actually vote for them in the next General Election, despite the recent By-Election Victory in Eastleigh.
If the polls figures are correct then why did the electorate vote for the Liberal Democrats in the Eastleigh By-Election? The theory appears to be that the electorate was simply sending a strong message to the Conservatives, which is why they came in last place. The message is plain for most people to see; ‘Start living up to the promise and vows you made or you’ll lose the next General Election.’
From the vast amount of reports I have read it would appear that the Conservative are starting to listen as the debate over several key areas, such as taxation, immigration, the EU, the Human Rights Act, are all looking to be addressed. Yes, there are many other issues to consider but like all things these do take time to rework and implement.
The question remains… ‘How far will the Conservatives get with all their plans of reform?’
This question is actually yet another piece of the complex puzzle as to why the voters may well abandon the Liberal Democrat Party. It has already been well documented that the Liberal Democrats are against any form of spending cuts on Welfare; indeed they would like to see this increased in order to support the thousands of immigrants that cross our borders. That also leads to another issue whereby the Liberal Democrats do not want to restrict immigration nor pull out of the EU and certainly they want no part of the possible scrapping of the Human Rights Act that would see an end to criminals and terrorists being unable to be deported.
The real problems with a Coalition Government is that you have two completely opposing views, which is why Coalition Governments are rarely, if ever, successful in running a country – there is simply too many conflicting views and when agreements cannot be made a stalemate ensues which in turn leads to the lack of action where simply nothing positive or beneficial to the country and its people is achieved.
It is a worrying time for the British people. Within just a few months our border will be open fully, with the ‘Right of Free Movement Act’. What choice does the electorate have? A Liberal Democrat Party which simply wants to feed the masses as the expense of the taxpayer, or a Labour Part in which during its last term got us into this mess.
Maybe, just maybe, a single government under the Conservative Party could be beneficial but if they are to succeed in the next General Election now it the time for David Cameron to come out and publicly do his dirty laundry and tell the people exactly what the real issue are and how he intends, if elected, to fix them.
Some people are keeping an eye on the UKIP movement, however at this point in the game they are still a relatively unknown quantity and some of their extreme right-wing views are not something that the majority of the UK public appreciate.
