We'll pay the price for Lib Dem broken promises
During the election, Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg attacked Tory secret plans to increase VAT. Two months later, he’s supported the Tories’ 20 per cent VAT bombshell.
The unfair Tory budget wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Lib Dems. Hard-working families are paying the price for Nick Clegg’s rise to power.
In the past few weeks they’ve u-turned on three years of Lib Dem economic policy by supporting the Tories in delivering a Budget which will risk the recovery, and people in this country will pay the price.
The Lib Dems have betrayed their own voters by:
Supporting the Tories’ 20 per cent VAT bombshell
Backing early cuts to public spending when he had previously denounced them
Supporting cuts to frontline services
