Leader of Lib Dem MEPs Supports Baroness Nicholson

This message was received from Chris Davies MEP, and the Leader of the British Liberal Democrat MEPs in response to a protest letter, sent to all Lib Dem representatives, at Baroness Nicholson's support for Islamic Republic . As you can see in the letter, the leader of the Lib Dem MEPs, even gets Iran and Iraq wrong!!! That is the level of Lib Dem intellectual capability. Imagine if these amateurs were running the country!!

"I do not regard Baroness Nicholson's description of the Iranian political system as a 'more advanced form of democracy' than that of the country's neighbours as inaccurate. The system is a travesty of democracy but most international opinion acknowledges that in Iran there is at least the means for a limited form of democratic public _expression which is more than can be said for a great many countries in the Middle East. To describe her comments as racist is simply nonsense.

I wish to see a democratic and secular approach to government adopted in an Iran which pays full respect to human rights. This would be very different from the system that exists at present.

If you wish to demonstrate against the personal views of one of my party's representatives I am sure she would be the first to say that you have the right to do so.

For my part I will be happy to discuss the situation in Iraq with you at a meeting we could arrange at the European Parliament or at my constituency office in the North West of England.

Yours sincerely

Chris Davies MEP
Leader, British Liberal Democrat MEPs "

Lib Dems have shown they are neither Liberal nor Democrats, and if there was tax on one's intellectual abilities, they would get a huge rebate.

They have shown they are not fit to govern this country.
