In affectionate remembrance of
THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS
Who died at the House of Commons
THURSDAY 9 DECEMBER 2010, at 5.41pm.
Deeply lamented by a small circle of
grieving friends and acquaintences
(although loathed by many more)
N.B. The body will be cremated and the Ashes distributed between
The Conservatives, Labour and the Greens (according to their wishes)
A friend put it best on Facebook yesterday:
Vote passes by 21 votes. This means that if the Liberal Democrats had honoured their pledge to vote against the rise in tuition fees, we would have defeated this legislation. This is an absolutely unforgiveable betrayal of their voters by Liberal Democrat MPs. I hope every one of them who ignored their election promises loses their seat. They will deserve it.
