Rafflesbear BS: Direct Action : UK (159* d) RE: BS: Direct Action : UK 26 Oct 10

Sorry if I still don't know what I'm protesting about but all the most notable protests have been single issue ones

Poll Tax
Mine Closures
Iraq War

I can't see you lining up 'cuts' against those, especially when most people can see that there is an underlying problem that does need to be addressed one way or another.

I still think that the way ahead is clear and it is centred squarely on the Lib-Dems, who while not in power put themselves forward as a very principled party of strong and clear values. Much of this has been sacrificed in order to become an active part of government including assisting putting through policies it specifically went to the electorate opposing.

I cannot believe that all those principled people have suddenly abandoned their principles to stand in line with the Conservatives. There always seemed to be a greater leaning to the left than the right. I would even suggest that the party had a bigger effect on the conscience of the nation when not in power than it has now.

If the grass roots of the Lib-Dems can be mobilised against their leadership then change becomes possible within the system
