Liberal Democrats score own goal

The Liberal Democrats opened their annual conference yesterday. They started off by deciding to tax hard working families to death. If you have a family and are planning to earn over £70,000 the Liberal Democrats are probably not the party for you.

The tax policy wasn’t the only policy where they scored an own goal. There was a gem about the EU treaty. Those wanting a referendum were branded lunatics David Laws who went on to say “Let's not have this fake argument about a treaty that frankly is now so detailed and technical no one apart from a few headbangers actually understands it."

I have to ask if our own MPs don’t understand it (unless they are headbangers) why are we allowing them to vote on it? Surely only those MPs that understand it should be allowed to vote on it?
