Lib Dems launch their manifesto

By Dark Politricks

I watched the Lib Dem’s press conference this morning in which they launched their manifesto for the UK General Election. The launch speech and question and answer section was mostly based around economic questions and how they plan to fund their pledge to abolish tax up to the first £10k for everyone and close the deficit by £10 Billion.

They propose to do this by clawing back 10% of the estimated £40 Billion lost each year to tax dodges, scrapping the plans for National ID cards and other big computer projects, introducing a mansion tax on properties worth over £2 million and removing certain benefits and tax relief for those who can afford it.

I was really looking out for some sort of debate over civil liberties and their proposed freedom bill but I guess that in the current dire economic climate the journalists who attend these conferences don’t think that civil liberties rank high enough on the agenda to warrant even the most basic question.

Still at least the Lib Dem’s have put implementation of the Freedom Bill in their manifesto as one of the key items in the 4 main areas of policy. Under the “Fair Deal” section we have:

  • Put trust back into politics by giving you the right to sack corrupt MP’s
  • Restore and protect hard won British Liberties with a Freedom Bill
  • Overhaul Westminster completely: Fair votes, An elected House of Lords, All politicians to pay full British taxes.

When I look at the three main parties there is not much I disagree with when it comes to Lib Dem policies. I am totally unhappy with Labour after being one of the people that voted them into power in 97. They have spent too much, added far too many laws, disrespected the public’s wishes, took us into 4 wars, been surrounded by financial sleaze and corruption and when one looks at the amount of money they have spent in 13 years on the NHS and other public services they should really be in a much better condition than they are now.

As for the Tories, I find it hard to even relate to them on the most basic level for many reasons and if you cannot relate to someone its very hard to vote for them.

One of the most likeable conservatives is David Davies who if you remember was the ex shadow Home secretary who resigned his position to fight a local by election on the grounds of wanting to debate civil liberties, the extended detention without charge and the role Labour has played in bringing us into a high tech survelience state. He isn’t the typical old Etonian Tory and comes across as a likeable and sensible man and I know that when I look at him unlike most other Tories he probably isn’t wearing women knickers and suspenders under the expensive suit 🙂

On civil liberties the Tories “seem” to be much closer to the Lib Dems than Labour and if I hadn’t of experienced their previous government I wouldn’t be so harsh on them. However I remember how bad our society was in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

The Rave culture which was spawned in 89 (2nd summer of love) was claimed by the press to be a re-run of the 60’s and appeared out of a mixture of the streets discovering E, football hooligans mellowing down and a major desire to stick two fingers up to Thatcherism and authority in general. The major difference was that in the 60’s people got stoned and believed they could change the world whereas in the 90’s we got stoned because we knew the world didn’t give a shit.

Yearly summer riots, ram raiding and joy riding, new age travellers, “the underclass”, pre-teen tearways such as ratboy, the list goes on of social ill and malcontent which arose during the last recession. Fair enough Labour’s recession hasn’t seemed as bad when compared purely on the effect to society in a broader sense but they have had their 13 years in power and the country is now bust.

I will be voting for the Lib Dem’s and I hope many of you will too. Last election they got one out of four votes and it just goes to show what a crappy electoral system we have when that many peoples choice means so little in political capital. Hopefully there will be a hung parliament and I don’t care whether Tory or Labour get to form the government as long as the Lib Dems get enough of the votes to be the minority partner. Hopefully whoever they get to work with will have to bend over backwards to keep them alongside and maybe then we can get some real positive change for this country which will include the Freedom Bill and proper tax reform.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
