Do As They Say, Not As They Do

Earlier in the week it was the Staggers that were highlighting their intern-hypocrisy, and now as the Lib Dems head to Birmingham for Clegg’s “return to your constituencies and prepare for government” moment, they too have fallen foul of practising what they preach.

“I’m Not a Politically Correct Feminist, But…”

In a campaign worthy of Jo Swinson it seems Nadine has declared war on London buses displaying 14ft ads of half-naked women trying to flog underwear. “It is becoming more hardcore and shocking. Since when did it become acceptable to have larger-than-life posters of scantily clad women moving up and down every street?” And the giant shirtless Ronaldo/Armani ad is fine though?
