The British people deserve better than Chuka's Lib-Dem whitewash propaganda



Turncoat Chuka Umunna has been spreading some extraordinary Lib-Dem propaganda on social media aimed at whitewashing their utterly disgusting legacy in government.

Alongside his despicably misleading comments about how British people deserve better than the disgraceful mess the Lib-Dems helped their Tory chums deliver, he included an extraordinary propaganda video rammed just as full of whitewash and false promises as any Brexiteer production.

I'm including annotated screenshots from this video alongside my commentary.



Environment

When the Lib-Dems were in government with the Tories they slashed solar subsidies, attacked onshore wind, and delivered a massive tax cut for fracking companies. aimed at creating fake economic viability for this environmentally ruinous practice.

In fact the attacks on solar subsidies and onshore wind were hand delivered by the Lib-Dem MP Danny Alexander in 2013!

They spent five years actively helping David Cameron to "get rid of all the green crap", yet now they've got the absolute cheek to demand better on climate change, and pretend that they're "fighting to protect our environment"!


 NHS

After the Lib-Dems enabled the Tories into power one of the first measures they introduced together was a programme of £20 billion worth of cuts to NHS services.

In 2012 the Lib-Dems voted through the £3 billion Health and Social Care Act, which should more accurately be known as the "NHS Privatisation-By-Stealth Act".

In 2014 the Lib-Dems helped the Tories to pass new legislation to make it easier for the government to shut down local NHS services against the will of local people.

Between 2010 and 2015 waiting lists soared, NHS staff shortages soared, literally hundreds of NHS facilities were scrapped or downgraded, and NHS patient satisfaction scores plummeted, yet now they've got the absolute cheek to demand better, and pretend that they're "fighting to save our NHS"!



Schools

Between 2010 and 2015 the Liberal Democrats helped the Tories inflict massive and unprecedented cuts to school funding.

Aside from the cuts they also helped the Tories vandalise the English education system by privatising over half of secondary schools (now 75%) and almost a quarter of primary schools.

Transferring ownership of so many schools into the hands of unaccountable private profiteers has been an absolute disaster.

These unscrupulous profiteers haven't just been paying themselves ridiculously bloated executive salaries out of our kids' education budgets and signing off huge no-bid supply contracts with their mates and family members, they've also been flogging off as much land and as many sports fields as possible in order to line their own pockets.

All of this before we even get to the devastating cuts in adult education funding, and the £9,000 per year tuition fees on extraordinary rip-off inflation+3% repayment terms they've lumbered on students.

Between 2010 and 2015 the Lib-Dems helped their Tory chums to vandalise the education system from top to bottom, yet now they've got the cheek to demand better, and pretend that they're "fighting to invest in our schools"!


 Housing

Between 2010 and 2015 the Lib-Dems and their Tory chums delivered the lowest peacetime house building rate since the 1920s.

Aside from the shockingly low levels of house building at a time of soaring demand, they also helped George Osborne introduce various house price inflation scams like Help To Buy.

2010-15 was a time of shocking inaction on the private rental market too, with exploitative landlords left free to rent disgusting homes to desperate people for extraordinary rip-off rents, with thousands of people hit with revenge evictions for daring to ask for basic repairs.

It was only after the departure of the Lib-Dems in 2015 that George Osborne and the Tories did anything whatever to clamp down on buy-to-let profiteering and revenge evictions!

Between 2010 and 2015 the Lib-Dems and their Tory chums catastrophically mismanaged the housing market, yet now they've got the absolute cheek to demand better and pretend that they're "fighting to end the housing crisis"!

Crime

Chuka Umunna added in one more thing in his comment that wasn't mentioned in the video, but once again it's utterly cynical stuff from a member of a political party that did so much to hep the Tories cause this violent crime epidemic.

Between 2010 and 2015 the Lib-Dems voted through every single Tory cut to the police budget, and wilfully inflicted the austerity fanaticism that resulted in the destruction of hundreds of youth centres and outreach programmes up and down the country.

Yet Chuka Umunna has got the absolute cheek to demand better and pretend that he's the wonderful hero sent to save us from the consequences of his own party's actions.

Brexit

It should be obvious to everyone that Brexit only happened because the Lib-Dems spent the preceding five years helping the Tories to ideologically vandalise our nation with austerity fanaticism, wage repression, public service cuts, infrastructure under-investment, and wanton vandalism of the social safety net.

What's even worse than actively laying the groundwork for the Brexit backlash is the way they just sat there and said nothing as the Brexiteers blamed the consequences of their austerity fanaticism on immigrants and the EU.

All they needed to do to undermine this insidious trope was to point out that the living standards collapse was caused by domestic UK government policy, not by immigrants and the EU, but to do that they would have had to implicate themselves, so they selfishly kept their mouths shut and let Britain go to the dogs.

And now they've got the absolute brass neck to try and cash in on the crisis that they helped the Tories to create by pretending to be the magnificent heroes sent to save the day.

And as we can see from this article, it's a technique they're using over and over again.

  • They helped the Tories trash numerous environmental measures, now they're posing as the heroes who will save the environment!
  • They helped the Tories vandalise the NHS and education system, now they're pretending to be the heroes come to save us!
  • They helped the Tories spectacularly mismanage the housing market, now they want us to believe that they're the heroes who will fix it for us!
  • They helped the Tories slash the police force to ribbons and shut down hundreds of youth centres, now they expect everyone to be gullible enough to believe that they're the knife crime-fighting superheroes.
  • They helped the Tories lay the groundwork for Brexit, now they're presenting themselves as the heroes come to save us from Brexit!
Just imagine the extraordinary levels of delusional self-righteousness of Lib-Dem supporters who credulously lap up this Orwellian whitewash, whilst simultaneously sneering at Leave voters for their fecklessness and gullibility!

This right-wing, money grubbing, expenses fiddling, lying, thieving, uncaring, incompetent con artist & wannabe politician being in a position of power says it all about England. It's a fucking joke.

Chuka 'CUcK' Umunna, Boris 'show time' Johnson, Nigel 'call the cops' Fromage, Brexit, Brexit party, xenophobia, the extremely irritating and overused 'democracy' buzzword, NHS being on the table, posh sociopaths grinning gleefully while they do what the hell they like safe in the knowledge that they're basically untouchable. Like I said, a fucking joke. And it's getting worse instead of better.

Glad I'm Scottish.

But the electorate is queuing up to vote for the Lib-dems. Nobody seems to remember Clegg and his promises. And of course if there was a general election any votes they get will be used to coalesce with the Conservatives. The Lib-dems are Conservative(1) and Nigel Farage's party is Conservative(2). Poor Labour won't do well in an election because of the relentlessly smeared Jeremy Corbyn and all the voters who wanted Brexit voting for Conservative(1) or (2). You've got to have Conservative rule, Conservative rule is the primary consideration above everything else. Unfortunately the electorate haven't seen through the Lib-dems and Chuka Ummuna and even if they did - so what. Another Conservative party would be manufactured. I suspect Chuka wanted to be the leader of the Labour party but couldn't usurp Corbyn, so he tried ChangeUK but then when he realised that was hopeless he went for the Lib-dems. Why he just doesn't join the Conservatives I don't know, perhaps he thinks they're heading for a fall. This man would do virtually anything to further his career/wealth/power, he's like a gambler placing his bets with different parties in the hope of a big win. Like Theresa May he wouldn't accept all the points of the article because the objective is to get £millions into his bank account and not to worry about all the homelessness and destitution you create along the way to your target. Another politician working tirelessly for (himself) the nation.
