Pointless People in British Politics

The Independent
The Liberal Democrats

Why? Because they never ever take a stand they are in the "centre" which is completely useless for everyone.

Be fair 13th, we should all ask questions of prospective MPs when they knock on our doors wanting our vote. It's not only the LibDems that are pointless though - depending where you live, the Cons are also pointless. I'm waiting for the UKIP manifesto before I decide but I have a soft spot for the Libertarians too - I'm just worried they don't have the public profile to attract sufficient votes and upset the apple cart in a way that UKIP might.

Perhaps, I am completely disillusioned with all parties right now. But it seems that the Libdems are just so useless they do not do anything - they are like a cancer if you will, feeding of the "healthy" (haha the Irony) body that represents British politics. If there is a hung parliament it will benefit them but that is not of their own making. People are attracted to the Tories and Labour (god knows why) because of what they say but I can not find a single reason for voting LibDems, they do not represent anything.

They say they are liberals yet they vote with the government when it comes to curtailing civil liberties.

They say they want an in/out referendum on the EU yet they vote with the government when it comes to having a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty - the de facto referendum on the issue.

What is their raison d'etre?!

The libdems were the ones to stage a walk-out over the Lisbon debate - thoroughly discredited. I wouldn't waste your breath on them if I were you. Their raison d'etre, like the two main parties, is their self-belief: the notion that we can't possibly understand and therefore don't know anything. Two fingers to Lib/Lab & Con.
