A Lib Dem Tory pact may not be so bad after all

By Dark Politricks

The spectacle of the UK general election carries on tonight into uncertainty with the Liberal Democrats currently engaged in discussions with the Conservative party over a possible partnership in government. It’s quite amazing for those of us too young to remember the last hung parliament in the 70’s to see what happens when no party gains enough seats for an overall majority in the house of commons and it will be interesting to watch how long Gordon Brown tries to cling on to power.

Whatever the cabinet ministers pushing the “progressive majority” angle claim, the public has most definitely answered the question of whether or not they want Gordon Brown as their PM and the Labour party lost a lot of seats last night. The Tories certainly won the election in terms of getting more seats than everyone else even if they didn’t get the magic number of 326 but their victory if you call it that could be cut short if Nick Clegg decides to support Brown.

The Lib Dem’s had a very disappointing night ending up with even less seats than they previously had and it seems that either the numerous polls over the last few weeks that showed a three horse race were severely wrong or that when it came to actually casting their vote many of the British public bottled it and chose to stick with what they knew.

This is a shame as I feel that out of the three parties the Lib Dem’s are the least worst option on many areas and Nick Clegg showed unusual moral character for a politician today when he told the world at a press conference he would keep his word and let the Tories try to form a government if they could.

He could have easily called up Brown, who I am guessing is currently prepared to bend over backwards to get a deal with him, and jump into bed with Labour in what many see as a progressive anti Conservative majority. However I am not too sure that I want to see the Lib Dem’s sign up with Labour just because they are compatible on a number of policy issues.

No matter how much I hate the Tories, and I admit I have a severe disliking for the Conservatives which may or may not be rational, I do see some positive outcomes from a Lib Dem Tory coalition. Journalists today were talking about the differences between the parties such as the desire for electoral reform and the question of Europe but in fact there might be a lot of good that could come from this Faustian pact.

Of course there are many obvious differences between policies between the two parties but as the economy is such an important factor at the moment it’s totally conceivable that a Queens speech could be drafted around the key policy areas that the two parties agree on.

On civil liberties the two parties are on the right side of the line in terms of opposing the National ID Card scheme, dislike of Labours high tech surveillance state and huge databases, they both want reform of the RIPA act as well as numerous other topics related to the big brother government Labour has build up. The Lib Dem’s want to introduce a Freedom Bill to reform all the laws Labour has removed and they are much more likely to get support on this with the current Conservative party who also want to introduce a bill to strengthen our civil liberties.

On Europe although the Lib Dem’s are seen as the most European of the big three they are also the only ones who want to give the UK population a referendum on the question of whether we should be in the EU or out. Maybe the Tories could appreciate that offering the people their first real choice on European integration is no bad thing as many within their party would like us to trade with Europe but not be run by it. If the people choose to leave the EU then the Lib Dem’s would have to follow our wish and maybe the Tories could use this as an opportunity to convince the British people that we are actually better off like Norway or Switzerland rather than ending up like Greece some time down the line.

Tax reform is also an area where a combination of the Tories desire to reduce our huge deficit and government spending along with the Lib Dem’s natural inclination to protect the less well off and introduce a fairer tax system could pay off. The Lib Dem’s would be the caring heart implanted inside the Conservatives to ensure that any reconfiguration of the nations economy is done in the best way possible and we don’t end up like we did in the 80’s under the last Tory administration with huge swathes of the country put on the dole for a generation.

The country is in for a tough time and we would be no matter who was in power however it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom and just because the “markets” want a quick decision so that big business can continue to make billions we should take whatever time is required to get things right for our country.

A reforming collation government that can make the public believe in politics again by introducing measures to clean up politics, restoring civil liberties and creating a fairer tax system could help ease the pain that we are all about to face. It would also prove that when push comes to shove actually politicians can work together across party lines when it becomes a choice between their parties best interest and the nations.

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?
