LibDem Tories

Well, we already know that the LibDem strategy is "Vote Clegg, Get Cameron", because Clegg has said that he will not work with Brown, but that does not make Clegg a Tory, does it?

Well, look at his opinions about the NHS in 2005:

"One very, very important point - I think breaking up the NHS is exactly what you do need to do to make it a more responsive service." Then he goes further, even refusing to rule out the insurance-based models used in mainland Europe and Canada.

"I don't think anything should be ruled out. I think it would be really, really daft to rule out any other model from Europe or elsewhere. I do think they deserve to be looked out because frankly the faults of the British health service compared to others still leave much to be desired."

This is Cameron's "Big Society". Don't think that a vote for Clegg will protect your local NHS hospital, it won't. Clegg wants to break up the NHS as much as Cameron does. They are just slightly different shades of Tory.
