Comment on Reasons to Vote Liberal Democrat 2010 General Election by John W McClean.

This time last year, I was looking forward to having a vote on electrical reform and was then massively in favour of change.

However since seeing that Nick Clegg persuaded your party to do a deal with the Conservatives just because they had secured the largest number of seats in the election when I had reasonable expectations that you would have had your party align itself with Labour with whom your party had much more in common as seen in the three televised leaders’ discussions.

You really let down yourselves and the people who voted for your policies by tying yourselves into negotiating with the party who secured the most seats rather than dealing with the party that would have seen your party achieve much more of its election agenda.

It would be very foolish for people to now vote for electrical reform which is likely to leave your party in a similar circumstance more often but it would have been a fantastic idea had Nick Clegg and your party shown, on this initial occasion that policies highlighted in those three televised discussions were of utmost concern in all your negotiations.
