Spinning for a vote

A sad little story tucked away in today’s Observer. Lord Renfrew, a Lib Dem peer, is seething that the government have suppressed and delayed the publication of a report about the EU. It’s packed with evidence provided from British firms about the economic benefits of the UK’s membership of the EU. That’s not at all what the Government wish to see debated in Parliament, or reported in any detail. We shouldn’t be surprised that this goes on, but one of the few benefits of coalition is that now and again a lib Dem is so outraged by what’s happening, that we get to know the truth.

If you’re greedy for more about the lies people will tell to get elected, there’s a poem on my website called Manifesto. You won’t believe it, but every word is true – look up the speech on Google.
