David "the Jews" Ward Faces the Music This Afternoon MP Faces "Retract or Sacked" Ultimatum

The LibDems have confirmed to Guido that the disciplinary meeting between David Ward and the party whips will go ahead later today, possibly in the early evening.  In a climb down following his car crash Sky News interview on Friday night, Ward weasel worded an apology for any “unintended offence”, but that’s unlikely to make the matter go away. The Nobel Laureate holocaust survivor that Ward hid behind on Friday is furious about being used. The LibDems say they are shocked and appalled by Ward’s “the Jews” rants, so how exactly is he planning to take the whip without a full retraction?  It would be leadership at it’s weakest if Clegg just lets this one pass…

In the meantime someone might want to have a quiet word in the ear of liberal Lord Alton of Liverpool who bizarrely asked last week in the Lords if the Government had “any plans to mark the 80th anniversary of the coming to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime in Germany on 30 January?” Unsurprisingly, Lord Gardiner replied that “the Government have no such plans.” Funny that.

UPDATE: Sources says Ward is facing “retract or sacked” ultimatum.
