Onesie-gate: LibDem LBC Stitch Up

It was only a matter of time before today’s biggest news – that Nick Clegg owns a onesie – unravelled. Sadly Guido was at lunch when the news came through and he’s been scooped by the Telegraph. It turns out though that “Harry in Sheffield” was in fact the old Etonian acting chairman of the Liberal Democrat youth wing and is a former Clegg staffer. The onesie story un-stitched.

Would any other leaders of the party youth wings like to create a media storm this week?

    Fake callers? The BBC are good at that one. Almost every day Radio 5 use the usual list of lefty loons to ring in and rant away. There’s the Scottish Muslim gayer who always starts off quietly, then brings in his ‘boyfriend’ then ends up shouting down the phone about Tories.

    Then the idiot from Liverpool who rings in and gets any conversation around to ‘Fatchur’ regardless of what the phone in is about.

      Actually I’ve seen Right to Work / (SWP) tweets (Owen Jones’ mob) organising an activist ring-in to either Nicky Campbell or VD complete with telephone number. These were followed by self-congratulatory ‘didn’t we do well’ messages.

      Strange how they all managed to get on air.

        It is so obvious that all platforms on the BBC have lists of “on message” contributors.

        The minority left have turned the BBC into as much an occupied zone as they have the public sector.

    The guy has always been dodgy.

    Lib Dems told the Electoral Commission after the last election that they paid Full House Audience Management £7,600 to find audiences for four meetings at which Nick Clegg spoke between April 10 and May 4 in Gateshead, Glasgow, Redcar in Cleveland and Richmond in London.

    The party paid another £1,000 for the company to find an audience for Mr Clegg’s 50th town hall meeting at a school in Dorset. The invoice had originally been £2,000 but it was reduced by half “due to short notice and poor response”.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
