Chris Huhne’s Driving Advice at Heart of LibDem Pamphlet

“Is true that Huhne has a chapter in the new Liberal Democrat ‘Green Book'” Guido asked a LibDem source in bewilderment earlier. “No, that would be madness… He has two chapters,” came the reply. And yes it’s true, Huhne has found good use of his spare time to pen two chapters for ‘New Directions for Liberals in Government’ that apparently ‘brings together 27 leading Liberal Democrats and sympathetic experts to propose radical and innovative new directions for the Liberal Democrats.’

One chapter is on, cough, “Driving Growth” and the another on ““reducing emissions from transport”.

Two areas he has a specialist interest in.

With a foreword from Clegg, it seems his party has learnt many lessons from their recent communication disasters.

          Miliband is not a democrat by any useful measure.

          His entire family history is one of contempt, to outright hatred for free people. The sooner both the Labour party and the Fauxservatives join them Lib-Loon party in the dustbin of history, the better for true freedom and democracy.

    Ok lets see if this post works.

    New Directions for LibDems:-

    1. Keep your promises.
    2. Learn from the mistakes of your rush for power.
    3. Ask yourself why you need a new direction, what is wrong with the existing one?

    You need to inspire hearts once again, but as you have broken countless hearts that will be tricky.

    Owen Jones says:

    “You ain’t seen nothing yet,” said Owen Jones, chief economist in London at Owen Jones Fund Managers Ltd., which oversees about $42 billion. “If the world believes there will be significantly more stimulus coming, which I expect, the pound is likely to be under further pressure.”

    The U.K. currency slid to $1.4986 on March 1, the lowest level since July 2010, and down from this year’s high of $1.6381 on Jan. 2. It rose 0.3 percent to $1.5166 at 10:31 a.m. London time today. That’s still a 6.7 percent drop from the start of the year, the third-worst performance among 32 major currencies tracked by Owen Jones after the yen and the rand.

      Given the ingredients of those cakes, unless there is contamination in the factory where they are made, one should be somewhat concerned about the dairy supply chain.

      This has probably come in from the Milk / Cream ingredients, but pasteurization usually kills that off.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
