    Exposes the new Tories' capitalist agenda

    This is a most revealing collection of essays by LibDem MPs and MEPs. Chris Huhne calls for legalising wars of intervention and for an EU 'rapid reaction force'.

    The LibDems want to 'replace' the NHS and to allow private 'alternative providers', which opens the door to US 'health corporations'. They want to end national pay bargaining in the public sector. They advocate privatising the Royal Mail.

    The contributors all say nice things about local democracy. Yet the coalition government's recent Localism Act gave 126 new powers to central government over local.

    Nick Clegg urges Britain to join the euro. As the euro crisis deepens, this looks even more stupid. He writes, "the vast majority of the electorate is both confused and undecided on the big European questions." This is patronising and untrue: there is a consistent 2/1 majority against joining the euro.
    Clegg writes of 'the overwhelming case for European integration'. He states that the EU is moving 'in a more open, decentralised, accountable direction'. Really? He writes of the "threat" of mass migration from Central and Eastern Europe, as if it were not real. (In 2002 there were approximately 4,000 workers from the A8 nations in low-skilled jobs in the British economy. Now there are 235,000.) He urges a referendum on the EU Constitution. Good idea! But what has happened? Another promise broken.
    Vince Cable too praises the euro, writing of 'the likelihood, and desirability, of the UK joining the euro zone at some stage'. He urges dismantling the Department of Trade and Industry, general de-regulation and abolishing capital gains tax.
