Watch Jo Swinson lie through her teeth


The new Lib-Dem leader Jo Swinson has been getting a staggeringly easy ride from the mainstream media, and from smug blue tick Twitter "centrists" over her disgusting track record in government.

One of the commonest excuses that Lib-Dem tribalists wheel out is that the Lib-Dems somehow "moderated" the Tories by ... errr ... voting through all of their malice in order to avoid resigning as ministers in the 2010-15 austerity coalition.

Even when Swinson does receive a light grilling over her votes in favour of monstrous stuff like Bedroom Tax, rip-off tuition fees, and disability benefits cuts, the mainstream media hacks who are supposed to be holding her to account just let her lie through her teeth about other stuff.

One of Swinson's favourite lies is that she supposedly opposed imposing upfront £1,200 Tribunal Fees on workers seeking compensation from bad bosses who had exploited or abused them.


Swinson repeatedly claims that she opposed these fees, and even opportunistically joined in the celebrations when they were declared unlawful by the Supreme Court and scrapped in 2017.

But the reality is that Swinson actively voted in favour of this unlawful Tory assault on UK workers' right to seek justice against abusive and exploitative bosses.

Not only did she vote in favour of the policy, she also promoted the policy in press interviews and press releases.

If she knew that this policy was a despicable assault on workers' rights, yet she publicly promoted it and wilfully voted in favour of it, instead of resigning as Employment Minister over this scandalous policy, there's only one sensible explanation.

She decided against taking a stand because to do so would have meant giving up on her six figure ministerial salary, giving up her ministerial car and other perks, and giving up on her ambition to one day lead the Lib-Dem party.

She put her own personal enrichment and career prospects above the legal right to access the UK justice system for millions of British workers.

Yet instead of apologising for this disgusting decision, she resorts to revisionist lies that she opposed it all along.

And this Tribunal Fees situation perfectly illustrates what's so wrong with the Lib-Dem excuse that they somehow "moderated Tory excesses" during the austerity coalition.

The reality is that their new party leader had an absolutely golden opportunity as Employment Minister to stand up for British workers by resigning from her post in protest, but she chose not to for the benefit of her own career prospects.

And just like Swinson's revisionist lie that she opposed the unlawful tribunal Fees that she actually voted in favour of, the general Lib-Dem excuse that they "moderated the Tories" is also a revisionist fabrication. 

Choosing to govern with the Tories gave them the opportunity to moderate their malicious tendencies, but more often than not Swinson and her Lib-Dem colleagues wilfully rubber stamped the absolute worst of it, because to actually rebel would have cost them personally.

Hi friends!
I am Tessie Chris by name and i want to use this great opportunity to
share with you some great and amazing testimony of how i was cured from HIV
Virus with the help of Dr idahosa Herbal Medicine.
Over 2 years now i have been suffering and living in pain with this deadly
virus HIV, fear grew in my mind everyday as i heard there is no cure for
it, but to me i knew that medical drugs was not the only option in treating
viruses and infection, my greatest problem was that i was stocked in pain
as the symptoms has circulated over my body.
Few Months ago i decided to get more information online concerning HIV,and
while i was surfing the web, i came across some great testimonials from
various people on how Dr idahosa has been using his herbal medicine to cure
different disease, at first i was shocked as i have never heard of such
thing before, and also i doubted if it was true as it never came up on
media, these people gave out the email address of Dr idahosa and advised we
contact him for any problem, though i was doubting him i decided to put a
test on it, moreover it was the first time for me to hear something like
that, i copied the email address of Dr idahosa and i sent him a message
about my health status and i also requested for his medicine in order for
me to get good health, he gave me a responded after some hours and he told
me the procedure involved in order for me to get his medicine, he also said
to me he was going to send me some herbal liquid medicine which was going
to take for 2 weeks and after 2 weeks i will be totally cured.
I went with Dr idahosa and i followed exactly as i was told by this man,
after 3 to 5 days of communication i eventually received a package from the
mailing service and that was the medicine sent by Dr idahosa.
I started taking the medicine as i was directed by Dr idahosa and after 2
weeks i also started seen some changes on my skin, and after a month passed
i noticed that the rashes on my skin are cleared, i was surprised and i had
a thought to myself again LIKE! IS THIS REALLY WORKING OUT? when i noticed
this changes i contacted this Great Dr and i told him about it, he told me
to go to the hospital and do some check up if the virus is still there, i
actually went to the hospital on Friday to do some test on my blood and
after 3 days the result came out that i was completely free from Hiv, still
many people will not believe this, but it did really works.
Dr idahosa is a brave man and he is set to answer all human disease, today
i am living in good health as just with a test i conquered my pain and
sorrow, Please you can contact Dr idahosa for any problem with the email
