David Cameron is insincere and not to be trusted while George Osborne has no experience of how ordinary people live", Lib-Dem ministers have claimed. Took them long enough to find out, didn't it?View full article here
My local MP is now a Minister in the current government due to "Events, dear boy, events." I never, ever trusted him before these "events" promoted him beyond his capabilities so why should I ever believe his claims now about Cameron/Osborne? And yes, he is one of the Lib-Dem ministers quoted in yesterday's disclosures. It is not surprising that Lib-Dem ministers are slow on the uptake. They are very generally slow on anything if my local MP, and now "minister" is anything to go by.
The same charlatan - Michael Moore, for it is he! - has laid various claims in the local press about just what *HE* has done for the Scottish Borders digital life since *HE* "created" some crap thing called "Border Digits" (or other crap, sorry I cannot be arsed to look up the real name of Mr. Moore's creation though it is mentioned in a letter I recieved from him). The only thing that *HAS* happened on the digital scene in the Scottish Borders is that we were among the first areas to be forced to convert our TVs to receive digital only broadcasts. Unless we agreed to sign up to Sky or have a FreeSat dish installed, we have been left with an abysmal service of some half a dozen stations, plus a couple of +stations, (= just what you watched on some of those original stations an hour ago now repeated!) *PLUS* the neverending propaganda of BBC 24hr News *PLUS* UNMISSABLE Parliament + CBBC crap! Is not that a truly wonderful service in return for that bloody TV Licence aka Poll Tax we are forced to pay to simply have an active TV set in the house. (Mine has not been switched on for over three months now.)
I lost my temper with the boasting, arrogant, Lib-Dem chancer  when he made stupid claims in the local press concerning hoped for DAB radio transmissions and I respectfully suggested he followed up his own observations concerning "FreeView Lite" - *HIS* name for the service - before he got involved with the future of DAB radio in the Scottish Borders. No sensible reply has so far been received.
 Regarding "Lib-Dem Chancers" - Moore now holds the seat previously held by My Lord Chancer David Steele, Knight of the Chancers, Lord of the Chancers, Chancer of the Chancers, and ex-Speaker of the Scottish Parliament, no less, though they don't call 'em Speakers up here. Still bliddy squeakers, mind you.
Lib-Dems! Don't get me started!
