49. Ukip voters aren't fruitcakes and I get why people vote for them, says Nick Clegg | UK | News |...
LIB Dem leader Nick Clegg said today he understands why people have been seduced by Ukip, as he stuck the knife into Labour and the Tories for having nothing meaningful to say on the EU.

50. Councillor Gareth Elliott: A bigger private sector would do more for poorer children Comment
The privatisation of national assets has always been a highly politically charged topic. Harold Macmillan famously likened Margaret Thatcher’s programme to “selling off the family silver”. Yet for all the scaremongering, the result has generally been a huge success. The UK’s car industry has gone from basket case to one of the most efficient in the world. Nobody today would seriously call for the renationalisation of BT, which is spending over Ł2bn on super-fast broadband, whilst our flag carrier, BA, is still a national champion; in fact, it is one of the most successful airlines in the world. The experience of privatisation is therefore one of success.Yet there are still areas where private enterprise cannot tread, and not because it couldn’t succeed, but because it is politically unpalatable. Education is one such example, yet it is potentially an area where the private sector could really make a difference.

51. Robert Halfon MP: Let’s give White Van Conservatism wheels – scrap the 3p fuel tax rise!
On Tuesday, I tabled a Private Members Bill on petrol prices, supported by many other Conservative backbenchers, as well as MPs from Northern Ireland, and Scotland. (You can see an extract in the short video above.) The idea behind it was very simple: that fuel tax should be crystal clear to motorists. In essence, this would sweep away the complex regulations about what fuel garages can and cannot put on their till receipts, and replace them with one simple rule. That whenever you fill up the family car, the till receipt should say in black and white how much fuel duty, VAT, and petrol you have paid. It should also say how much is actually being spent on Britain’s roads. Simple. This would make the tax system more honest; it would be a big deterrent against any future tax-rises; and it would add pressure on the oil companies to be fair.

52. Joe Armitage: On entrepreneurship and tax cuts, David Cameron is another Margaret Thatcher | ConservativeHome
Joe Armitage is Chairman of Medway Conservative Future and Deputy Chairman (Political), Rochester East Conservatives. He’s also on a gap year interning for a Conservative MP. Follow him on Twitter.On the one hand, some people claim that David Cameron and Margaret Thatcher are cut from the same cloth. The Leader of the Opposition even went so far as to say Cameron was a “Child of Thatcher.” On the other, there are those within the Conservative Party who believe that David Cameron is not a conservative, that his policies are centrist and that he has abandoned conservatism: this, to me, is nonsense. The policies of the Coalition Government have produced encouraging results such as job and business creation, but they’ve also brought about an atmosphere which fosters growth, and it’s inevitable that the green shoots will appear.Ed Miliband recently told the Daily Telegraph that “Thatcher created an era of aspiration". It’s true, she did - but I also believe in decades to come, it will be said of Mr Cameron that he, too, is responsible for creation an era of aspiration. When you look at the mission of Lady Thatcher’s government and compare that mission to that of David Cameron’s government, there are many similarities. The Coalition is dedicated to promoting hard work, self-determination and expunging Britain’s dependency culture. That is also true of Lady Thatcher’s aim of self-reliance, individualism and rolling back the state in accordance with negative freedom.When you look at the policies of this Government and compare them to Lady Thatcher’s, one can see that the challenges are very similar challenges. In 1979, when the first Thatcher Government came to power, the highest rate of corporation tax was 52% and the highest Income Tax threshold was a hernia-inducing 83%. These levels of tax were discoursing growth, aspiration and self-development. When David Cameron’s government came to power, corporation tax was 28% and income tax was at 50% - obviously far lower than under Callaghan but too high nonetheless.

53. Alex Deane: A vitally important speech by David Davis Comment
For months - since very soon after the formation of the Coalition, in fact - many respected Conservative voices have been saying in private that not enough is being done to cut government spending and encourage growth. Yesterday, that view was given a forceful public voice in a speech by David Davis for the CPS.Alas online it lacks the compelling slides with which DD accompanied his presentation at the ICAEW conference hall (which, by the way, was packed), but I urge you to read it - for both the intellectual rigour and honesty of its message, and for the remarkably direct soundbites.

54. Chris Huhne quits as Energy Minister after being charged with lying to police over speeding...
Chris Huhne’s political career was in freefall today when he was forced to resign as Energy Secretary after being charged with a criminal offence following claims he persuaded his ex-wife to take his speeding points.In a dramatic move the Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer said the Liberal Democrat MP and his ex-wife Vicky Pryce would both be charged with perverting the course of justice – an offence that typically carries a prison sentence of more than two years.Mr Starmer said the charge centred on claims Mr Huhne lied to investigators about who was driving a speeding car in 2003.

55. RICHARD LITTLEJOHN: A few of Cleggy's favourite things | Mail Online
Nick Clegg went into ‘Love Actually’ mode at the weekend, spouting an extraordinary, sentimental list of everything he adores about Britain.He told a Lib Dem gathering in London that he was unashamedly pro-EU and pro-immigration and his heart swelled with pride when he thought about the BBC, the NHS and the birth of Prince George.He also boasted about his admiration for the European Court of Human Rights and his commitment to spend billions of pounds every year on foreign aid to countries such as India and China.

58. Ed Miliband Useful As A 'Boil On The Scrotum,' Says Radio Caller
Ed Miliband is due to spend from now until polling day campaigning on behalf of Better Together to persuade Scots to reject independence.However one caller to BBC Radio 2, Dale from Pontypridd in Wales, was not too impressed with the Labour leader's efforts so far.He told Jeremy Vine: "It's no good the leaders rushing north, they are just going to push the Yes vote over the line. The Scots see Miliband as watered down whisky. During this coalition he has been as much use to traditional Labour voters as a boil on the scrotum, he has been absolutely pathetic."

61. I bet many of the fat cats of the public sector vote Lib Dem – Telegraph Blogs
Vince Cable seems to be more of a true Lib Dem than his leader, Nick Clegg. In characterisic Lib Dem style he feels free as a Minister to denounce the policy on limiting immigration from countries outside EU of the very Government in which he serves. President Johnson pithily justified offering office to one of his critics by saying it was better to have him inside the tent urinating out than outside urinating in (though of course that wasn’t the verb used by LBJ). Mr Cable seems to enjoy being both inside and outside the tent at the same time and urinating on his colleagues and opponents alike.

62. Roger Helmer MEP: Climate alarmism is falling out of favour in the rest of the world - but...
We might as well hang up a sign in the airports: "Closed for Business". While EU leaders pontificate about prioritising growth and jobs, we have climate mitigation policies in place that massively raise energy costs and force industries, companies, jobs and investment out of the EU altogether. In the name of environmentalism, we force them to go off-shore, to jurisdictions with lower environmental standards. It's a whole spectrum of energy-intensive businesses. Metals like steel and aluminium -- a highly energy-intensive industry. Cement. Chemicals. Glass. Paper and wood-processing. We talk about "rebalancing the economy towards manufacturing" and in the next breath propose "a floor price for carbon". Then we wonder why industry sails off into the sunset. I have been writing about this for years, but it was brought home to me with added force at a dinner-briefing last night hosted in Brussels by EUROFER, the European Steel Association. Normally at these events there are speeches/briefings/presentations followed by a debate with interventions from the floor. In this case, after a couple of speeches, attention turned to dinner and the debate never happened. My carefully-crafted question was condemned to languish un-asked, so I'll ask it now.

63. Roger Helmer MEP: Camborne are wrong about the single currency. Our recovery begins when the...
Cameron and Osborne have a clear line on the eurozone. While they think the €uro was a misguided venture, and they don’t want to join -- ever -- the argument goes that a disorderly breakdown of the €uro would be a disaster for the UK economy, and that the eurozone is such a key trading partner for the UK that any recession there would cause us huge damage.Based on this analysis, Cameron makes encouraging noises about “Big bazookas”, and (despite the Veto) about the UK’s moral support for efforts to save the €uro. And he is prepared to cough up billions of British tax-payers’ money for the IMF, knowing that much of it will be diverted to “Saving the €uro”.I think this analysis is fundamentally flawed. For a start, I don’t believe that the €uro can be saved, and I believe that attempts to do so are just throwing good money after bad.

64. Roger Helmer MEP: When they tell you that half our international trade is with the EU, that’s...
I picked up an incoming Tweet this morning from my good friend and colleague Dan Hannan MEP. It reads: “Denis MacShane told me, didactically, that we sell more to Belgium than Brazil. That, Denis, is precisely our problem.”Dan makes an important point. The fact is that between 40 and 50% of Britain’s international trade is with the EU’s 26 (EU less UK). The exact figure is debatable, because of the Rotterdam effect and other technical problems with analysing the trade statistics.There is the standard, familiar Europhile interpretation of this simple fact. “50% of our trade” (they say) “is with the EU. This, by itself, justifies our membership, and means that the costs are worth it”. You will have spotted the errors in this statement. There is the implicit assumption that trade depends on membership (Not true: ask Norway or Switzerland). There is the nice round 50%, which is almost certainly exaggerated. And there is the failure to address the European Commission’s own estimates that the trade benefits of membership amount to around 1.8% of GDP, while regulatory costs amount to about 5.5% - three times higher.
