The left wing vote of the borough was a significant element in the LIb Dem's downfall. By joining forces with the Tories, many such as myself broke a lifetimes habit and voted Conservative to get rid of the duplicitous and disgusting LIb dem party. Why disgusting? see below

10 Issues concerning the Liberal Democrats that make them (IMHO) the most disgraceful political party of all time

1. Derek Osbourn- Long time leader of the KOT council who while in office was later found to be a proven ‘ring master’ of a paedophile group . Derek Osbourne is now serving a richly deserved jail sentence after being convicted as a paedophile and is a registered sex offender on the national database.
2. Nick Clegg being humiliated by Nigel Farage in the recent televised debates.
3. The Liberal Democrats betraying their traditional left wing voters by forming the CON-DEM Government with Cameron’s public school chums AKA the Conservative Party.
4. Under a Liberal Democrat Council for goodness knows how long all KOT residents now pay the highest Council Tax in London yet there are next to no public toilets in the Borough and no public parking for Motorcycles in New Malden – Pathetic!
5. Rose Theatre. Funded partially by the Liberal Democrat Council against the wishes of many a council tax payer in Kingston Upon Thames. The fayre served up is bland middle class rubbish deliberately aimed by a seemingly load of geriatric luvvies at alienating 90% of mainstream choice within the Borough. It must be obvious – use the facility for mainstream taste!
6. Cyril Smith – Another Liberal Democrat who appears to have been abusing young children. It seems to me the Liberal Democrat Party is a magnet to sexual deviants and perverts. Watch this space - it appears that portly Cyril may out-do Jimmy Saville?
7. Lord Renard- accused by his fellow female Liberal Democrat party members of abusing his power of office by touching them up on numerous occasions. Unfortunately for him not many takers (apparently - so the aforementioned ladies say)
8. Edward Davey’s hypocrisy proven by him removing from his website evidence of his long term stance against nuclear energy just prior to his recent massive U turn as part of the CON-DEMS. Come the next general election he will in any case be toast and mainly because all the left thinking voters in the borough are going to vote Tory. My view is that it is better to deal with an outright Tory than a Lib Dem traitor AKA our beloved (Not Anymore!) Member of parliament, the right deceitful (in my view) Edward Davey
9. Mike Hancock – Liberal Democrat MP in Portsmouth. I understand from the press he is going to probably face charges of sexually assaulting one of his constituents. Portsmouth Council already have, so I understand, held a damning internal enquiry. I suppose the upside for the Lib Dems is that it could prove to be a misunderstanding as was initially thought with Derek Osbourne
10. Finally there is the inconsequential former leader of the party who was a self confessed drunk. He was so second rate that I can only remember his first name …Charles ????. I suppose the current leader will go down in history as Nick Wotisname? – you know David Cameron’s stooge – you know the one who got ripped up on TV by Nigel Wotisname? Perhaps they were related
