Burstow’s Radio Silence

It is worth noting what Guido had to say about Paul Burstow’s involvement in dealing with the Rennard allegtions back in May 2009:

“Paul Burstow, Chief Whip in the House of Commons, phoned a number of female LibDem PPCs personally to assure them that Chris Rennard would no longer be in charge of their careers. A number of Cowley Street staffers are rejoicing at the departure of of the Chief Executive.  Mostly female staff…”

Burstow has just had a nightmare under pressure from LBC’s Julia Hartley-Brewer:

No answers in a textbook car crash interview. Guido is working on getting the audio…

UPDATE: You can listen to the interview here:

    The LieDem car crash goes on and yet the in breds at Eastleigh will still vote for them.

    What is wrong with the voters of this country, Rotherham was another example, LibDem/Lab/Con can commit crimes, lie, borrow money your great grand children will have to pay back, convert hospitals into death camps and still people vote for them.

    Exactly how thick do you have to be to vote for one of the main parties

    That spoof LibDem logo features two right hands. Better than Gideon’s two left feet I suppose.

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

    Julia HB has become my broadcaster of choice.

    She covers the same ‘human interest’ { code for ‘Women’s hour’} topics as Victoria Derbyshire or Shelagh Fogarty, but without the stultifying dullness.

    That was great! I think we can all conclude that Mr Burstow is up to his neck in it either for doing sod all or reporting up the chain of command and dropping Clegg well and truly in the doo doo. Wonderful!

    The egregious Paul Burstow is my local MP (I didn’t vote for him). I have had cause to write to him twice in the last 5 years and didn’t received a reply to (or even acknowledgement of) either of my letters…

    It doesn’t surprise me in the least that he didn’t answer questions on air

Before Miliband spoke, a school choir sang ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay. The first verse of which goes like this:

“When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
