DICK GREIG AND CHAS KENNEDY ARGUE ABOUT WHOSE TURN IT IS TO BUY THE DRINKS ON THE GLASGOW PLANE
QUESTIONS were being asked yesterday about the true position of the Libthingies on issues, after the party's leader, Dick Grieg, appeared to contradict his Treasury spokesman on tax on his first campaign trip to Scotland.Meeting Scottish candidates in Glasgow, Mr Grieg said the Tories would have to raise the rate of VAT to pay for their pledge to reverse Labour's increases in National Insurance contributions.
But in the recent chancellors' debate, his Treasury spokesman, Electricity Cable – yesterday 355 miles away in Cambridge – refused to rule out an increase in VAT, (BUT HE DID GET MORE LAUGHS!).
As usual the LIBTHINGIES are trying to be all things to all men. The difference this time around is that their POLICY is under scrutiny. A VOTE FOR THE LIBTHINGIES IS A WASTED VOTE, PARTICULARLY IN SCOTLAND. There's only one party can beat LABOUR in SCOTLAND and everyone knows that's THE SNP!
BTW, old Charles doesn't look happy in the above photo, does he?
