.....doesn't believe in democracy!
This is Martin Horwood
He supports "Tribal Peoples" and their right to be treated equally and democratically but he doesn't think that his own countrymen should have those same rights. Typically, not only is he a Europhile but an advocate of climate change.
He is the party spokesman on International Affairs so I guess he has his position, salary and gold plated pension to think about before he does his job!
This is his voting record :
Voted moderately for more EU integration
Voted strongly against Labour's anti-terrorism laws
Voted moderately for a transparent Parliament
Voted very strongly for laws to stop climate change
Voted strongly for equal gay rights
Voted very strongly for a smoking ban
Voted very strongly against a stricter asylum system
Voted strongly for increasing the rate of VAT
This is what he thinks of his constituents who would rather leave the EU.
"HARDLINE Tory eurosceptics are the political equivalent of Asbo yobs, according to Cheltenham's Lib Dem MP Martin Horwood.
In a scathing attack on the Conservative right at his party's conference in Birmingham, Mr Horwood compared them with farcical characters from a Monty Python film and argued they needed to be politically "isolated".....
...... He branded them "the political equivalent of antisocial behaviour people".
And he compared the divisions within this group with those ridiculed in the 1979 British comedy film Life of Brian, where the People's Front of Judea harangue 'rivals' including the Judean People's Front, and the Judean Popular People's Front, to cries of 'splitters'.....
...."We have to isolate that tendency politically," he told the audience of Lib Dem activists.
See what he thinks? He thinks the people of Cheltenham who would like to leave the EU should be given asbo's and that they should be isolated from the rest of the population. He compares you to farcical Monty Python characters and thinks you're anti-social.
What a nasty piece of work Mr Horwood is. When the time comes for a local election, the good people of Cheltenham know what they must do.
