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?

    The planted question:

    Bonsai cannot be repotted at any time of the year; for the majority of species, there is a small period of time during the Spring where the roots can be disturbed and pruned with reduced risk of danger to the tree’s health. (see earlier…)

    Operation Crossbow says:

    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.

        Sandra in Accounts says:

        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.

    No flies on Onesie then?

        A dutch bloke, non-cleggy, coming to the front, in a brit car, through old brit cars, without help of Dave Cee,

          It's my party so I will sware if I have to says:

          GET OUT OF THE WAY YOU ITIES, FROGS AND GERMIES, I am Nick Clegg don’t you know, and I ponce about successfully in Great Britain.

          • It's my party so I will sware if I have to says:

            and you might be wondering why that dutch bloke didn’t put his left down hand to change gear, because he put a paddle, Jazza Clarkson-style, on the side of his steering wheel on the right hand side, as they do.

    The Fraud Squaw says:

    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”.

    Zinzan says:

    For the avoidance of doubt, it is not a onesie – it’s a babygro.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
