Was anyone else duped for voting for them in 2010?

Thought they were more left-wing than the current Labour Govt for some reason and basically signed off 5 years of austerity, what a plank.

Lived in Sheffield and voted for Mr Clegg directly. Genuinely put me off UK politics, long term.

What is 'Skills Wallets'?
Ditto 'Big Structural Bailey'.
Is it a pun? What are they trying to communicate?
So confused.

The local Lib Dem candidate here (a constituency where the tories have a tiny 600 majority over Labour and the 2 parties got over 90% of the 58,000 votes) has published this bar chart.



The 'last election' was a parish council one in which about 500 people/ 25% of the electorate voted.

Are these dishonest bar charts party policy?

The Lib Dems are proposing a £10,000 grant for every adult in England to put towards education and training.

The money would go into a "skills wallet" over a period of 30 years, to help with the cost of approved courses.

So now we know, I guess. I prefer Labour's approach of just making education free for all. People who go to University without rich parents to pay their tuition will already be tens of thousands in debt before they get the first £4000 installment of their skills wallet.

Also in 30 years that sum will be worth considerably less.

Oh no only £500 left in my skills wallet, all this gets me is VIALS OF HORSE CUM

The Lib Dem plan - which would only apply to England as education is devolved to the other nations - would:

Put £4,000 into people's Skills Wallet at the age of 25
Add another £3,000 at 40
And another £3,000 will be put in at 55
The current cost of tuition fees in England for a university course is up to £9,250 per year.

So you don't get anything until you're 25? And then it's 4k. Over 15 years. £266 a year. £5 a week.

Also, I bet this'll be used by employers as a way of getting out of paying for job-relevant education and skills training.

I mean it won't, of course, because it'll never happen because they've no chance of winning. It's a meaningless pledge, just something for them to renege on when they go into coalition with the Tories again.

Cynical prediction: we'll end up with a Tory-Lib coalition, with the two main concessions being a second referendum (Tories' choice of questions so we end up deciding whether to leave on Thursday or Friday) and some diluted form of Skills Wallet. A Skills Pocket maybe?

Knowing the way the Tories do things, you'll have to put money into it yourself which they will then top up. Like the Help-to-Buy ISA. Useless for people who don't have any money to put in in the first place.

Actually, in promotional terms, was the Skills Wallets thing a bit of a masterstroke? Putting the incomprehensible ad out first, so everyone was saying "What the hell does Skills Wallets mean?", then announcing the policy so everyone is telling each other about it. Might have been brilliant if the policy was less shit.

Fuck it, may have to vote Labour even though I'm in a tory/lib dem marginal... I'm in a seat where it probably will go to the Lib Dems, so maybe better to help Labour make in-roads?

If everyone in a tory/Lib Dem marginal voted Lib Dem because its a tory/Lib Dem marginal, there would never be a chance for labour. Vote labour.

Can't really agree with that, unless there's any kind of foreseeable chance that Labour could win. I'd still rather have a LibDem MP than a Tory one, even just to put a dent in their numbers and make it more likely for Labour to get the most votes.
