Swinson is STILL dragging her heels over ‘government of national unity’ – because she’s a Tory-supporting Brexiteer?

I hope people in Brecon and Radnorshire who were fooled into tactically voting for a Liberal Democrat – in the belief that she would oppose Brexit – feel wiser now.

In fact, that constituency’s by-election was only won by Jane Dodds because the Brexit-supporting vote was split – if the Brexit Party had not stood a candidate, Conservative criminal Chris Davies would have won again.

Habitual Labour voters were persuaded by a barrage of junk mail – the Lib Dems must have spent a fortune on it – to support Ms Dodds in the belief that her party would do everything it can to prevent Boris Johnson’s “no deal” Brexit.

And the Liberal Democrats are doing everything they can to make “no deal” Brexit happen.

Don’t be fooled by Jo Swinson’s plea that Mr Corbyn wouldn’t have the numbers in the Commons, even if her party supported him.

She was referring to the 21 former Tory MPs from whom the Conservative whip was withdrawn after they supported the Benn Act that outlaws “no deal” – falsely.

She does not know that they would not support a short-term Corbyn-led government with just two priorities – preventing “no deal” and calling a general election.

So, in fact, she – and her party, including Ms Dodds – is the only obstacle to that government being formed; SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford was on the BBC’s Politics Live today, calling for her to change her position.

But her loyalty to the Conservatives – this is the Lib Dem who called for a statue to be built in honour of Margaret Thatcher, remember – seems to be unswerving.

The best comment on her behaviour so far – in This Writer’s opinion – is from a social media user whose name has become lost (sorry). In a message to Ms Swinson, this person stated:

“If you can work with David Cameron for five years, you can work with Jeremy Corbyn for five weeks.”

That’s the fact of the matter, yet still she drags her heels.

It seems clear that Jo Swinson and her Liberal Democrats are now the UK’s greatest force in favour of “no deal” Brexit. What a shambles.

    Swinson – It strikes me that her lack of political nounce has been exposed. Unfortunately she’s behaving like a child playing at being a grown-up. I very much doubt that the LibDems will be forgiven a second time.
    The LibDems represent only 2.6% of MPs and over a ⅓rd of those are defectors from other parties.

  2. Mark C

    Swinson suffers from delusions of grandeur. She wants everyone to say ‘Jo, you should lead this caretaker government’ despite not having the numbers herself. A flurry of Tory homophobes and Blairites from Labour and ‘Change’ don’t make your party any bigger, especially as they’re still untested in an election.

    You don’t want to hear what my mother calls her but if you saw her, yesterday(?), telling the B.B.C. that she wouldn’t support Jeremy Corbyn, who was up front and centre with her? As far as I could tell, only one real £iberal Democrat M.P., £ayla Moran; the most prominent faces were those of £uciana Berger, Chuka Umunna and Sam Gyimah. That should tell us all that you need to know.
    She thinks that she will be the next Prime Minister!

  4. Pat

    She’s a total disgrace to the Lib Dem’s by voting for austerity and keeping Boris in power, she should feel ashamed of herself.
