It's been a while since I've felt the need to foray in to the world of politics, but the drought has now ended.
I was reading this article on the BBC News Page and learned that according to the Liberal Democrat MP Dr Evan Harris,
"Criminalising flag-burning would be an unacceptable restriction of freedom of expression".
I assume that Dr Harris, who obviously cares about freedom of expression, belongs to the same Liberal Democrat party who made these comments for The Telegraph recently:
"Last night the Liberal Democrats called for Miss Kelly, who is also in charge of Government policy on promoting equality, to resign on the grounds that her personal beliefs are incompatible with advancing gay rights."
The word "inconsistent" springs to mind.
I might not be David Cameron's biggest fan, but I still fail to see why on earth anyone would vote for the Lib Dems*. And let's face it, the comments about Ruth Kelly are neither "Liberal" nor "Democratic" so even the party name is a sham.
*Obviously people do vote for them, so if you are one such person I would genuinely like to know what your reasons are.
