The reaction to David Cameron's veto decision was so predictable it is becoming tedious. The Labour party, the LibDems, the BBC and newspapers like the Guardian and the Mirror immediately jumped on the bandwagon declaring apocalypse now, isolation, marginalisation and national disaster.
Ed Miliband and his front row threw the book at Cameron yesterday in parliament and as usual he just swatted them away. Nick Clegg couldn't even bring himself to turn up! His absence actually drew the fire off the PM for a while. It strikes me that Nick only wants to be part of a Coalition as long as he gets his own way.
Behind Miliband some of the more independently minded Labour MPs like, Kate Hoey, Frank Field and Austin Mitchell agreed that the veto was the right decision but as usual the most desperate attack comes from within the BBC. How this left wing propaganda machine can still command licence payer's money defeats me? I do wonder how some of their journalists can stomach the stance that they have to adopt? There was no attempt at impartiality, their tone was funereal to the point that it is becoming funny!
The Labour party has in fact been discredited forever following their spending spree with our taxes but the very people who brought the economy close to ruin are continually paraded in front of the cameras by the BBC. I cringe every time I see politicians like Prescott, Blair, Balls, Darling, Harman etc etc because their views and comments have no value. We are fed a diet of climate change, the EU and socialism. It is time to abandon the licence fee because they have lost the right to command it.
