Vince Cable Allegedly Slapped Down Over Bubble Comments

The run to the next election has begun.

The problem for the Lib Dems is that the Conservatives have used them as a scapegoat, the electorate blames the Lib Dems for enabling the nasty policies.

Seems too far in the future to be electioneering, and i just cant see this so called good economic data lasting 17 months, maybe it will be earlier then planned.

I think the election is going to be sooner than expected. I expect the Lib Dems to use some controversial policy to vote against the Conservatives causing an election early. This is the only way they can hope to avoid total annihilation.

AFAIK the election date is now fixed by law. In the old days the incumbent could call the election basically at any time ie the date they thought they could win, now they can't do that.

The LibDems could leave the coalition and leave Cameron with a minority government. But whatever they do the LibDems are dead men walking and the 'tuition fee' fiasco was their suicide note and will be annihilated at the election.

Im not so sure theyll be dead, look at the destruction the Labour and Tory party's oversee and yet the sheeple still go back to vote for them.

But for an election to be called 2/3rd of MPs need to vote in favour, Labour have almost 260, Libs 60ish so all it would take is another 100 Tory MPs and theyd be there.

Senior Liberal Democrats claim that the Chancellor is prepared to see the housing market overheat in the run-up to the 2015 general election, boosting economic confidence and increasing the chances of a Conservative election victory.

But Government sources told MailOnline that Mr Osborne dismissed Mr Cable’s warnings at yesterday’s Cabinet meeting. ‘In London prices are going up relatively rapidly but in many parts of the country that’s simply not the case,’ said one.

Senior 'young-metropolitan' Conservatives obviously not read HPC, where the theme is so many older owners want their homes to fall in value for the good of the nation. :rolleyes:

The Queen (actual Queen, not Alan Carr) could call it early

They did. Even when a clear vote was held on abolishing the bedroom tax- which their own conference condemned- the lib dems chose to sacrifice their principles for some imagined popularity gain they felt they would achieve by being 'tough on welfare'- what about being tough on f*cking bankers? Or corporate tax evasion.

At least the Tories acted in the interests of their own constituency- the wealthy- but the lib dems have shown themselves to be whores of the lowest kind- selling out everything they claimed to stand for in order to retain their pathetic grain of power.

After the years of Labour and Conservative sleaze, shambles and treachery the one thing the UK electorate wanted from the LibDems was integrity - like Clegg promised with his broken promises election video set on the London Embankment.

What did they do with a bit of power once they were in the Coalition. They immediately reneged on their tuition fees promise. To prove that they were just like grown up politicians?

Vince you are part of this government. You are in a Coalition government.

No integrity = no vote.

Dismissal of Parliament until the UK economy is properly sorted out would be best.

I agree.

They'll be hurt, a lot, but the core vote will see the alternatives and, since they are as bad or worse, vote lib-dem.

Could be the lowest turn out ever I think.

23 predicted for Vince and his crew seats but not in the balance- solid Labour majorities predicted from electoral calculus (78) and UKpollingreport (58). Admittedly these majorities have softened somewhat recently (ukpolling report has been 70+ for most of the past couple of years).

The predictions are made using a 'universal swing' system for ukpollingreport, I wonder if this aids LibDems since their seats are often in exactly the places you might expect them to get a spanking next time (student areas). They might lose x% nationally but if that all comes from students deserting them then they could lose some quite safe seats. I dunno though, time will tell..
