A Compilation of Coalition lies.

It's a bit one-sided isn't it - what about Labour MPs and their expenses? They are no better. But then that wouldn't fit your agenda would it?

Wish there was a yawn emote on MN.

It's a compilation of coalition lies, not a compilation of politician lies.

Does every criticism of one party have to be balanced by criticism of the other party?

The point of the video is a reminder of the lies which the current government - the parties in power - have committed before and after being elected.

When the next government is in power, we can hold them to account for their lies as well.

Well unlike you, it seems, I like to look at a balanced picture and am not warped enough in my views to only to look at one side of the story.

Re the next government, I'm confident it will be Conservative without the hangers on who will be as dead as dodos in the next election.

Perhaps you think we should give Labour another 4 or 5 years to destroy our economy completely, having done so much damage before this Government? In the absence, of course, of your preferred extreme left wing party who thankfully haven't a chance in hell of getting anywhere near Parliament, I'm pleased to say.

The Tory scum won't win the next election, I'm quite sure of that. In all likelihood, it will be another hung Parliament.

Labour didn't destroy the economy, there was a global financial meltdown. Public spending was not the cause of the crisis.

Labour did contribute to creating the conditions for a meltdown; they continued the same neo-liberal policies which have been happening for decades: deregulation of the economy and creating an economy where the state is highly dependent on tax revenue from financial industries.

This is part of a global trend, which is why the financial crisis was global in nature.

This is poor reasoning. I'm not asking you to 'look at one side of the story'. I'm asking you not to ignore evidence.

The fact that Labour are guilty of crimes and lying to Parliament and the public doesn't meant that the Coalition aren't. In other words, nothing that Labour has done excuses what the Coalition have done.
