A Good Coalition…

Humph & Linda

What on earth is a Labour supporter doing socialising with a Liberal Democrat PPC??? What’s more, why do they look like friends?

Because they are. Brought together by a hustings meeting in May, speaking on Twitter, meeting again at tweet-ups and becoming firm friends.  Many nights have been spent bashing out policies, arguing points and laughing our heads off..  why shouldnt people with differing political views be friends?

I make no pretence whatsoever about the  total devestation disappointment I felt when Nick Clegg took his party to join the Conservatives in May 2010.  My blood ran cold, I cried, I shouted my protests at the television as I am sure many thousands of others did. For months I ranted on about it until finally acceptance grudgingly settled in.

Since then I have had many debates on Twitter with Lib Dems about the rights and wrongs (or rights and lefts) of the Coalition. Generally (not always) we seem to come to similar conclusions, the Liberal Democrats seem to have been hoodwinked into propping up some appalling policies in exchange for a handful of their manifesto promises. Frustratingly, many Lib Dem policies have not only gone out of the window but have been literally stamped on by Dave & Co.

So as we sit and chat, laugh and debate during our tweet ups, I often wonder how very different things would have been had it been up to Humph & Linda…

Pssst: Linda writes a great blog.. “Lindylooz Muze”

  1. I’m sure there will be many points to discuss in the future, I’m not sure of the longevity of the coalition. But with Linda you’re going to have a great time mulling things over..

  2. One of my best nights out this year was at a table with Linda & Humph & between them they taught me a lot about various political subjects & despite party differences harmony of friendship can be found & I can only thank them both for being my friend & can’t wait to see them again.

  3. well, you can’t be too fussy, can you – you speak to me and I’m an Anarchist! (or is that Anti-Christ? – I get confused easily; Anteater? Aardvark? Anoldfart? That’s the one!) x
