Shock, Horror! Lib Dem Ministers In Coalition Are Thinking For Themselves

It’s rather revealing to see the press united in condemnation of Vince Cable’s confession that he had gone to war with Rupert Moloch Murdoch’s media empire over News International’s attempts to make Sky ( BskyB ) a wholly owned subsidiary.

Not so long ago the media were uniting against Murdoch family empire building plans.

Let’s not forget Murdoch already owns a sizeable chunk of UK print media and has a controlling interest in satellite broadcasting. It was only thanks to Vince Cable earlier this year that News International were blocked from gaining a controlling interest in ITV which under a Labour government led by Murdoch’s best buddy (until he ceased to be useful to The Dirty Digger) Tony Blair.

So the question is do we want to be governed by a coalition of elected MPs or by the most facistic and self interested of corporations headed by a leading member of The Bilderberg Group.

Before the terminally gullible among you reach for the hate keys to tell me there are no such things as conspiracies and the Bilderberg group are not shape shifting lizard men read this.

Elsewhere there are more reports obtained by under cover reporters secretly recording “off the record” conversations revealing that unlike the unthinking automatons who make up most of the Conservative and Labour parliamentary parties, the Lib Dems are actually having heated debates about what needs to be done.

The press are more agitated about the idea of independent minds in government than they are about the failure of public service providers to keep the country moving throughout the cold weather.Obviously the meeja lefties of Fleet Street and Broadcasting House still don’t understand what coalition government means.

Either that or they yearn for a return to the days of New Labour with it’s loonytoons economics and the authoritarianism of the politically correct thought police, the people who made gay rights issues more of a priority than sorting out unemployment, the NHS or the fubar schools system

So far the coalition have given us a mixed bag of results. We would have to grade them fair to middling with a lot of room for improvement. And the Europhilia and enthusiasm for greater integration being displayed is a big worry. But they have made a few steps in the right direction on rolling back the nanny state’s invasion of our wheelie bins, living rooms, kitchens and beds.

  1. I can only presume senility was responsible for Cable’s unbelievable verbal diarrhea to two complete strangers! Alternatively, he’s so overwhelmed by the new powers given to him after all those years in the wilderness that he wants to spout out to everybody what he can do with it…interesting the Telegraph didn’t print his comments on the Murdoch business but Robert Peston leaked it later…hmmm…very dangerous to give one individual so much power over the media and its output…we’re either being incredibly stupid in permitting it or there’s so much wheeler dealering (no such expression, but suits what I want to say) going on behind the scenes that even those opposed to it can’t stop it…

    1. As long as there are coridors, toilets, storerooms, quiet little pub off the beated track etc. you will never stop deals being msde behind the scences. It’s human nature and the politician who thinks human nature can be changed by passing laws is a fool.

      In Cable’s case we all know he has a big gob and a high opinion of himself and he wasn’t really the only economist who saw the crash coming. What was done to him is as wrong as when the same thing was done to the snooker player John Higgins.

      Do we want to live in a world where there is no trust, where we treat all strangers as if they are trying to stitch us up? We wouldn’t get much business done. Both Cable and the Daily Telegraph deserve a public bollocking.

      1. I think it’s bloody disgraceful this entrapment going on now…but the politicians really ought to restrain themselves when talking to people they don’t know at all…that’s just plain common sense…three more Liberals apparently have had it done to them???

      2. When have politicians ever restrained themselves. The tradition used to be sex = tories, fingers in the till = labour. Now they’re all at both.

        And with Lib Dems its obviously verbal incontinence as well.

        But they’re all pretty clean compared to eighteenth century politicians who openly solicited bribes, milked the tax revenue and kept lots of mistresses without any attempt to be discreet.

  2. Who’s Cable? Does he work for Telekoms? Seriously, the stupid fuck will ruin the coalition–held together by a very thin elastic band–and let ‘Rabbit eyes’ Ed take advantage (if he has the guts for it.)
