I have two Daughters one in Norway Ingrid 9 and one in Liverpool Emmaline 3. I have a two bedroom flat and Emmaline stays twice a week, Ingrid stays when she comes over and we are a complete family. But because they dont live with me full time, i am up shit creek. Do they expect us to all stay in one room. This will not matter to the rich and will cause problems for a very lot of people.

It has been suggested that following the General Election you accepted a bribe from David Cameron to gain a semblance of political power. The claim is that the historical differences between the Conservatives and Liberals would make it utterly impossible for any accord between the two parties. The claim goes on to elaborate on these differences, going back to the Parliaments of Charles II, when the parliamentary parties began to polarise into the Whigs and Tories. I would have to agree on...

It has been suggested that following the General Election you accepted a bribe from David Cameron to gain a semblance of political power. The claim is that the historical differences between the Conservatives and Liberals would make it utterly impossible for any accord between the two parties. The claim goes on to elaborate on these differences, going back to the Parliaments of Charles II, when the parliamentary parties began to polarise into the Whigs and Tories. I would have to agree on the historical aspects and ask; did you, indeed, accept a bribe from David Cameron? It is suggested that the most blatant act of political corruption took place following the General Election. For my own part, your deal with David Cameron has demonstrated that my vote for the Liberal Democrats was, in fact, a vote for the Conservatives. I believe that you have betrayed a once great political party and shown yourself to be a venal political opportunist.
Although I do not expect a reply, I would advise you that a failure to reply will be taken as an admission of the above claims and will be published. On the other hand, in fairness, any reply which explains your reasoning for joining forces with the Conservatives will be reported upon as well.
Sent to Nick Clegg via his website on 9th February 2013.

I have not received a reply yet. I have applied for an e-petition asking for a parliamentary enquiry into the conduct of the LidDem/Cons at the conclusion of the last Gleneral Election. I have addressed this application to the Leader of the House of Commons. If he refuses to permit the petition, I will allege a conflict of interest upon his part. I will keep everybody posted. This House of Commons is an unelected assembly and the formation of this coalition was nothing less than a coup d’état.

Well said Nick MacDonald, we were Conned by the LibDems, I voted for them because I had no faith in GB and New Labour and would never want another Tory government after Mrs T. Had a Local LibDem around with his leaflets today, after reading I noted several misleading statements about his successes locally, screwed it up and put it in the bin. I can't wait for them to come tapping on my door in 2 years time. I just hope we still have a society left by that time!!!

I, too, voted LibDem because I thought that we needed a change from the two old, tired and discredited parties. But I feel that my vote was stolen. I voted LibDem as a vote AGAINST Labour and the Conservatives. The political carve up carried out by Cameron and Clegg was an abuse of the electorate and the parliamentary process.

I voted the cons (yes they are all a bunch on con artists) and would never have voted libdems so disappointed having said that it has shown the country what I was beginning to believe so hopefully we have all wised up and won't vote for any of the three main parties ... so may be a win all round :) jx

All they are wanting to do is open up council housing to give to immigration.Never mind how long you have lived there, that your friends live around you,(some of these people are elderly and they need their friend around them, weather you have grandchildren staying with you at weekends.Or single fathers having their children staying them when possible.(TRAITORS).

Friends keep inviting me to sign this and to ask others to sign it. That would be fine if I could only find out exactly what's being proposed. Perhaps I missed a headline somewhere. Googling for info on it has so far not enlightened me. If anyone can send me a link to such info I'd be very grateful. Once I understand the apparent injustice of it I'll certainly add my penny-worth of protest and encourage others to join.

Together with the cuts/none increase in working age benefits it hits the vulnerable and sick as do so many of the current governments policies.

Lorna, I didn't know either but it is a Discretionary Housing Payment. Only a time limited payment that can sometimes help if there is a difference in rent owed and housing benefit paid. I am not sure it will apply in the instance of the benefit changes which come in once the bedroom tax arrives.

So does this mean my daughter will get housed now coz she has been on the Council waiting list and bidding on the "LOCATA for EIGHT YEARS" My daughter has also been told by the council she won't get housed because she's band D. Yet the 2 bed property opposite me has been empty for six weeks the tenants that were in there had three boys they were given a FOUR BED HOUSE how right is that???... three bed to the rear of my property been empty since last October, and 2 months or so before this...

So does this mean my daughter will get housed now coz she has been on the Council waiting list and bidding on the "LOCATA for EIGHT YEARS" My daughter has also been told by the council she won't get housed because she's band D. Yet the 2 bed property opposite me has been empty for six weeks the tenants that were in there had three boys they were given a FOUR BED HOUSE how right is that???... three bed to the rear of my property been empty since last October, and 2 months or so before this Government was voted into Parliment 5 properties that had been empty for months down my street one of which had to be refurbished because it had been empty for so long - all let just before the election and all let to foreigners. I'd have the two bed opposite me and then my daughter and family could have my house, to me problem solved. Also where are all the Romanians and the rest of Europe going to be housed when they arrive here in their droves??????? coz Romanians age for consent is 14/15 years old, so what are we going to get arrive here, untold teenage mothers who need housing and bring the family too. Oh of course...... that's why we are having to give up our properties, Please be advised at the rate this country is going no matter who is Government each party blames the other for whatever, but you watch for all of us 50ish plus years olds or older we will not only loose our homes...the time will come when we will have to pay for the NHS, their will be no age for retiring, basically work till you drop dead, EDUCATION won't be free it will have to be paid for from day one........Yes I am on Housing Benefit, due to an accident on route to the Jobcentre after being made redundant for the "third time". It's funny coz whilst I was paying full rent and council tax when working It was ok that I lived here even though I could have claimed Housing Benefit as I was on a low income but I didn't....I intend to get a job....but whilst being housebound how funny is this, I have been looking at council properties and the rent on some are more than what I pay now, why would anyone with half a brain loose a bedroom or even two bedrooms and pay more rent???...

my friend won't get housed in the eyes of the council as they said she made herself homeless, has a 16 year old daughter she left a violent husband after years of violence both my friend and daughter are now in B&B and have been for six months she is 57years old born here lived here and worked here all her life. Another family arrived at the B&B, mother, 4yr old boy and a 7yr old girl, they had left their country for whatever reason so Council put her in the B&B, but she was only in the B&B for three weeks, she now lives in BRAND NEW three bed house, on the day she moved from the B&B guess who turns up the husband that she was supposedly not to be with, so they all live here in a nice new three bed house claiming benefits ..............AND REMEMBER SHE MADE HERSELF HOMELESS,
So it's ok if you arrive in this country with no home no job no food, because Government gives all away...........

REMEMBER THIS our Fathers and those before them fought for this country, fought so WE could have a better future so we could give our children and our grandchildren a better future ....,EDUCATION NHS JOBS HOMES PENSIONS the list is endless.....and what for......... like so many others, I know fear for my children and even more so my Grandchildren, who come to my house because they can just get a bunk bed in their bedroom...what does the future hold for them.............
I WILL NOT BE BULLIED INTO LEAVING MY HOME,AND WE SHOULD ALL STAND UNITED AND....................CLOSE ALL THE BORDERS INTO
GREAT BRITAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why doesnt the Govt do something useful like preventing immigrants and overseas business people from buying homes here? We have a housing shortage yet they are still allowed to buy them. By increasing demand it inflates house prices so they become unaffordable to British homeowners. Instead the Govt tax people on the number of bedrooms they have. Morons.

Nathalie Genevieve I am fully aware that Australia was used as a British penal colony!!!! They are VERY rigid as to who comes into their country,all I am saying that is that Britain needs to stop immigration onto our shores as we can no longer cope with the fit to burst population and this is a very small country!!! I am not racist by any means but enough is enough and how many immigrants do we have working here and banking their earnings back in their own countries!!! False economy is what that is!!!!
