        I met Anonymous a couple of times. He’s actually a fellow Wykehamist. In those days he was still using his real name, the Hon. Gaveston Vaporetti-Punck. I’m afraid a PPE degree at Oxford and time in the salt mines as an unpaid intern for Hilary Benn have left him with a few issues.

    It is not illegal to tell a lie.

    It is illegal to enter into a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

    It is not allowed to mislead the House of commons: This can be considered contempt of Parliament.

    It is considered contempt or perjury if a lie is told whilst under oath, and lying to the police in certain circumstances is most certainly an offence.

    The screwing up of energy policy, re the windmills, may yet bear further fruit if it can be proven that the house was mislead or there were other improper actions taken in the recent past.

    With this conviction though, irrespective of custodial sentence, it will be interesting to see if usual employment policies are applied moving forward.

    So Eastleigh:

    i) LibDems: Previous MP jailed, junior in coalition with no chance of getting their stated policies across the line, pro EU. Backdrop of Cyril Smith.

    ii) Labour: Some MP’s may be in court soon, deny EU referendum, no policies except one on banning Frosties.

    iii) Conservatives: Following nu-Labour policies, at least one sitting MP likely to be arrestd by Fernbridge imminently, another on the front bench has familial relations to the other, unconvincing on EU referendum pledge. Economy still screwed, abandoned conservative principles.

    iv) UKIP: Clear stated policies. Definitely better choice than the ‘none of the above’ candidate.
