Lib Dem Kennedy
I just took a gander at the website for the Man Who Would Be Prime Minister, Charles Kennedy. Apparently he's no relation to the senior Senator of Massachusetts, but it's not for want of trying.
He wants you, British taxpayer, to pay for college tuition for someone else's kids:
Kennedy's government will empower local jurisdictions to find out how much you make:
Kennedy promises to micromanage education:
Kennedy will micromanage public safety a la Bill Clinton:
He's against "climate change" too, so he's got big plans for British industry - namely, to hound it out of the country. This is by design; with no union-heavy employers left, there'll be no need for a "Labour" party. If you don't like your job and want to move onto the dole - vote Liberal Democrat.
I love this bit in particular:
And to say that he's not above a little George Bush bashing is to say that the sea is not above the clouds. Bush is obviously bad, see, because he bolstered his own agenda by raising the spectre of a despised foreign leader - quite unlike those principled Liberals. (h/t Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
I lived in America all through the Clinton years, and what a long strange trip THAT was. Take it from one who knows, dear cousins: we have seen this bag of treats and tricks before. Dear Leader always promises that he will take someone else's stuff and give it to you - but he is not about to stop there.
Charles Kennedy, should the electorate put him behind the wheel, stands to drive Britain's economy and society right off London Bridge. When you vote on Thursday week, the urge to vote against Bush will be strong; but please take into account what you are voting for - the Clement Attlee of this generation.
Those members of the Christian Right in the UK whose ancestors did not hie to Massachusetts don't like him either.
Other places to look: Lib Dem watch.
