Vince and the Bankers

September 25, 2010 at 9:42 am Leave a comment

Lots of Lib Dem huffing and puffing about the banks at their Liverpudlian conference. True to form, they want it both ways – snuggling up to the Tory cuts while still nattering on about left of centre values when they’re herded together.

 There was St Vince Cable, striking poses on the platform making a speech billed in advance as ‘Marxist’. Of course it was nothing of the kind, but he did talk the talk on cutting bonuses for those lovely ‘talented’ people whose talents have been employed to screw the rest of us. However there’s a pattern here; they’ve had 5 months now and there’s been lots of anti-banker rhetoric and absolutely no anti-banker action. While Vince is salving the Lib Dem consciences, little Georgie is busy ripping the heart out of our welfare state, and the bankers are laughing – well all the way to the bank.

 Anyone surprised by that? Nah, me either.

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
