Trust the Liberal Democrats?

We know students have a poor opinion of the Lib Dems broken election promises as the party engaged in a grubby power-grab after the 2010 general election. We know also that the party is fanatically europhile as witness its uncritical, sycophantic support for the EU and all its works.  I came across a leaflet published by the party before the 2010 general election. 

A classic example of a party thinking it has no chance of power making promises with the comfort of knowing it will not have to implement them.  At least Cameron was consistent. The Conservatives promise of a referendum was conditional on the Treaty of Lisbon not having been signed by the UK government.  Who will forget the furtive manner in which Gordon Brown signed the treaty, turning up a day late?
