Wet blanket Nick Clegg sponsored his pet project by saying why should any Government be able to dictate the time of an election to suit themselves; a time which they believe would optimize their support and in effect, thereby maximize any possible advantage they may have.
Of course in reality, his party was in a coalition Government at the time, was fearing the consequences of the following general election and thus was really just a feeble effort to mitigate any possibility of any advantage a sitting party may have, in order to aid his own party in future elections.
Yet here we are just a short time later and a Prime Minister has just decided to name the date of the next General Election.
And as such, it's fair to assume a date which indeed coincides with a belief that this represents the optimum time for winning.
It just goes to show you how lame, fake and disingenuous Clegg actually is.
But it also demonstrates how, when politicians tell you they are going to curtail or ban a certain custom or practice, they always build a loophole in to any legislation they subsequently create, to enact and supposedly enforce such stated aims.
This can then be navigated around by whoever it suits, when it suits; chiefly the wealthy elite who of course, have the means to do so.
They work on the basis that the law is for the blind obedience of the uneducated, but merely for the guidance of the wise.
