LibDem Protest In Photos: Fighting Nick Clegg’s Anti-Smoking, Anti-Protest Illiberal Party

by | 12th, March 2011

THE LibDems are under the cosh in Sheffield. Outside their fortified conference, students are demonstrating. Hey, it’s your right to protest. And the liberals are all about freedoms and protecting them. That’s why they’re hiding behind a big fence and supporting a ban on the display of tobacco products in shops.

If the kids – you know, the rebellious ones who like to smoke coffin nails to assert their youth and distance from death – can’t see the pretty colours and are reminded that that smoking is subversive and smacks against government control – they will not smoke.

It’s the kind of bansturbation and illiberalism that marks Nick Clegg out as a pampered poltroon worthy of contempt.
