(It) was not the fact that the Government stabbed their voters in the back by going back on their manifesto promise; it was not the fact that the Liberal Democrats, as ever the majority spineless, refused to take any position whatsoever; and it was not the fact the vote was lost, as was expected anyway. It was probably the way the Labour MPs cheered as the results were announced.
It is a contemptible, evil thing when the elected representatives of the people cheer as they vote away both the will of the people themselves, and most likely the only chance to save Britain from being dragged further into the Napoleonic monolith that has ensnared the nations of Europe. Never has such contempt been shown for the British people by any Parliament in any age.
