Lib Dems manifesto demands a second EU referendum

Don’t just whine from your sofa. We need action to stop the Progressive Alliance! DONATE NOW!

The Lib Dems, the party whose name lays claim to being an advocate of democracy, have finally come clean about their determination to fight the people. The Liberal Democrats have put a second EU referendum at the heart of their general election manifesto, saying it would “give the final say to the British people”.

Luke Nash-Jones, Director of the People’s Charter Foundation states, “Farron has repeatedly tried to weasel out of this during interview, but now it is clear the LibDems, the voice of the stuck-up Islington dinner party set who mourn the fall of Blair, sneer down on the riff-raff, deeming us too stupid to be heard.”

Discussing the manifesto pledge on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Sir Ed Davey, the LibDem campaign chief, made the astonishing claim voters had yet to be offered a genuine vote on Britain’s European future.

In the run up to the referendum, the LibDems received a massive investment from Lord Sainsbury who also backs their fellow member of the so-called Progressive Alliance. This actually far outweighs any investment they have received over the last decade, and therefore it’s no shock they feel pressured to push for a second referendum.

Two years ago, the yellows lost almost 50 seats and were left with just eight MPs. Now, they seek to reverse these fortunes by seeking support of the 48% that backed the EU, though that plan is collapsing as the support of the EU has dropped to 22%. Liberal Democrats leader Tim Farron and his predecessor Nick Clegg are both at serious risk of losing their seats at the general election.

(Desperate to find voters. Is Farron asking a dog to back him?)

Conservatives in Farron’s Westmorland and Lonsdale seat are confident of pulling off a remarkable victory in Cumbria, while a drop in Lib Dem support in Sheffield Hallam has Labour confident that it can unseat Clegg, party sources have told Business Insider.

In words lifted form an Obama speech, Lib Dem election spokesman Sir Ed Davey told BBC Today they are the party offering “hope” and “change”. Luke Nash-Jones continued, “The Progressive Alliance are beyond a joke. While Diane Abbott struggles with maths during TV interviews, Tim Farron seems to also be arithmetically challenged, as he struggles to realise 52 is larger than 48.”

The LibDems are heavily aiming at the student vote, knowing that many students, brainwashed by liberal professors who dominate universities, these pro-Marxist madrasas. While their plan to legalise weed may not actually see a surge in usage, if Portugal’s experience is considered, it is clearly aimed at the youth vote.

Seemingly opposed to the health benefits of a good bike ride, they propose a free bus pass discount on single and return tickets for all 16-21 year olds, using the same mechanism as the National Concessionary Scheme for the over-60s. Ironically, for a party so pro-open borders, they demand recipients of the scheme be ordinarily resident in England, effectively blocking EU citizens.

The party, which has pledged to increase corporation tax to pay for its plans for schools and to lift the public sector pay cap, insists its plans are fully costed. However, cutting corporation tax would increase foreign investment, and provide more jobs.
