U turn if U want 2

Interesting post by Stephen Williams MP on his own blog defending his line on tuition fees… It’s very long – make yourself a cup before you click on the link.

He seems to be saying that it’s OK for him to support what the Government is doing now because he spent his time as Higher Education spokesperson trying to get the Libs to ditch their position on fees, and everyone knew that’s what he was trying to do, but he still signed the NUS pledge against fees and spoke at rallies against them because… Well, he’s kind of lost me there, but he had a very good reason for doing so. The comments are more entertaining than the post, and a good deal more succinct!

    So, if you read the last paragraph, senior Lib Dems, many of whom are now in the cabinet, were itching to abandon the beliefs and principles of their supporters and even less senior MPs. Now they’re in the coalition, they can do it. What kind of people have risen to the top in the Lib Dems?

    this is even worse than nick clegg going against policies this mp has gone against his own believes by signing the pledge and advocating it through the election is this not morally indefensible and should face his electors surly he can’t b trusted to hold the position of mp wen he lied to his constituents
