Thanks for the warning, Nick
Good of Nick Clegg to warn Labour in today's Times that he intends to destroy us - the print edition even had a handy map of the Labour seats he wants to target.
Far from being potential coalition partners as some (even the great T Blair) misguidedly thought in the 1990s, Clegg reveals that the LDs dream of reversing their early 20th century eclipse by Labour and returning to a scenario where politics is a two party fight between rival middle-class parties representing nuanced versions of the same ideology. This would of course mean no voice for trade unions or working people in Parliament.
Far from being progressive, the LDs form coalitions with the Tories in twice as many hung local authorities as they do with Labour, and as part of the ELDR group in the European Parliament they consistently vote with the right and against the left on major issues.
Our Scandinavian sister parties have got liberalism sussed and refer to the Liberals and Conservatives collectively as "de borgerliga" - the middle-class block of parties.
Given Clegg's declaration of war on Labour, will our Victoria Street HQ finally abandon the non-aggression pact that has seen our national campaigns not lay a finger on them in three General Elections, with attack material such as "Liberal Demolition" having to be generated and researched by individual activists and MPs like Dan Norris, Tom Watson, Phil Woolas and John Spellar?
Time for the gloves to come off and Labour nationally to spell out the shambles the LDs are, their crazy policies and their dreadful record in power in local government.
