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?

    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.

    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.

    If he gets convicted he’s finished
    If he avoids trial on a technicality, he’s finished
    If he get’s off, but on a technicality, he’s finished
    The only way he will be able to make a comeback is if he is clearly and unambiguously exonerated.

    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”.


  62. 62

    Yeah, it’s massive for a….Clegg.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
