New Lib Dem poster

Effective, and a great deal better than the Labour "Gene Hunt" posters.

But didn't Osborne rule out a VAT rise...as has Darling, and (after a little prompting from Clegg) Cable has belatedly come round to that view.

So this is more a "they're liars, and if they don't do what they say, but instead do what we say they'll do, then..."

Hardly nail biting and riveting stuff. Not even an up-to-date poster idea. Do the LD poster wonks not have ideas of their own? Is this subliminally saying "we'll copy Labservative".

By the way, how much of the structural deficit do you want to get rid of in the next parliament. Labour say about 65% in the budget, the Tories say more, (but without specifying). Can you at least say less or more than Labour....if you can prise Vince's buttock cheeks off the fence.

Ditto the Tories say it should be 20% tax & 80% cuts; Labour say 35% tax and 65% cuts; LDs say ..... ?

The more I see of the local LDs, the less convinced I am (leaving me with Tory, Tory or UKIP).

The whole point is that it is the Tories own campaign comig back to bite them. It's called irony.

The whole point is that the Tories have a yawning gap in their fiscal policy and how will this be bridged ?

A hedge fund manager on TV just two weeks ago was praising Vince Cable as the preferred option for many in the City of London for chancellor, so that says a lot for me.

All three parties have equally sized yawning gaps.

Labour have said how much they want to cut the structural deficit by (65% of it) and how much of this will be done by taxes (35%) - but they do not have plans showing how this will be achieved

Tories have said they will exceed this, and with 20% done by taxes- they do not have plans showing how this will be achieved

Lib Dems are, I grant, different in not even having a target. They havent said how much of the deficit they want to cut (more or less than Darlings 65%, Vince?); neither have they said how much will be done by spending vs taxes. No target - no plan.

In the absence of credible plans, we are left making our minds up on who is most likely to have the determination to cut.

Vince Cabel was asked today if he would rule out increasing VAT. He said NO. I say again he said NO. You just canot trust the Lib/dems they say one thing and will do another.

He said no chancellor could ever rule out tax rises but with the lib dems fully coated plans thee wpas no need for a vat rise. Typical tory misrepresenting the words of Vince cable.
