Liberal Democrats inconsistent? Never.

Labour's Fraser Kemp has pointed out that Charlie Kennedy opposed a wind farm in his own constituency, despite national policy to encourage renewables.

Funny, their policy also sets out to encourage kerbside recycling, but one of John Hemming's first acts when he joined his Tory friends in running Birmingham City Council in 2004 was to scrap a long-awaited plan to deploy wheelie-bins in Birmingham to improve kerbside recycling and also to stop the appalling mess caused by the current system of black plastic bin bags.

A new kid on the block, Mouldcracker, posts a few comments by the Green Party on the Liberal Democrat's environmental credentials.

By the way, although the Liberal Democrats promise to oppose building new airports and expanding airports in the South East, there's no room in the manifesto for anything supporting their campaign against expanding Birmingham airport.
