Bollocks to Swinson, We Should Remain With Vince

Jo Swinson as leader is not the Will Of The Liberal Democrat Party. Less than half of the members desire her as leader.  Therefore Jo Swinson has no majority mandate and the LibDems should remain with Vince Cable in place for the beneficial future of the party – until that future can be properly decided.  Vinny is stable, secure, we know what sort of lunacy we are getting with him.  Although changing leader might open new opportunities the massive risks of driving the LibDems of a policy cliff edge into clearly outweigh the potential gains.  Experts paid to say that say so, and I for one believe them.

It is clear that this is too important an issue to be decided before anyone has a clear idea how catastrophic a Swinson leadership would properly look like. What colour orange is the next logo going to be under a Swinson leadership for instance?

Over the next 6 months or so the blatant lies told by her to win the vote will become apparent. The lied to will realise this and their preferred future for the LibDems and hence our country should then be retested in a fair contest.  Unlike the last one where probably some people cheated.  Therefore there should be another vote to decide once and for all what to do.

This “peeps vote” would pitch her against the status quo, Vince Cable. However, even if she does win that time, we should still stick with Vinny anyway. (because change is bad).

Meanwhile we call upon the Electoral Commission to investigate the following items:

  • Whether Ms Swinson overspent her allowable budget during the campaign
  • Who funded her and where all the “dark money” came from
  • Ms Swinson’s potential business links to shady foreign organisations and how much support she received from them
  • Evidence that she aggressively targeted adverts at swing voters using Social Media and other selection techniques
  • Misuse of members data, and requiring proof that every single member she communicated with “opted in” to receiving marketing material from her, not the party, under GDPR.
  • Her blatant lie that the Liberal Democrats stand a chance of being the largest party at the next election and what effect that had on voters
  • Allegations of potential bullying of staff

OK so the above is deliberately absurd – and through that lens of absurdity she should examine her own and her parties attitude to Brexit and apply an equal standard to both. Then she might become a leader of a party worthy of voting for, and understand what the “Democracy” part of her parties name is all about.
