Clegg Speech Reaction Round-Up

And a classic from the LibDem press team to finish off their week of incompetence:

That went well then.

    Well at least cleggie is reasonably personable. Let’s just wait until militwit does his conference speech and compare them then!

      Just HOW LOW can the man creep. Dishonest, hypocritical, self interested – interested only in saving his own skin – like all libdems – witness that awful man Simon Hughes clapping for a policy he’s trashed in the past – leaves you speechless.

      Militwit’s conference speech could be one of two things. If there is intrigue and plotting and Miliband’s leadership is questioned it will be an important speech with the media hanging on every word. If, on the other hand, mutterings about the current leadership don’t come to the fore during the conference nobody will give a hoot.

      Let’s face it, Miliband is never going to become PM.

    Switched off about a minute in, couldn’t bear listening to him. I wonder if he ever got a desk or does he huddle round in a circle on the floor with his laptop? I suppose we’ll never know.

      He was absolutely dire, my thoughts on listening to him were “he really is bonkers,” he seems to think people actually voted for them instead of the Libdems being foisted on to us by necessity !

      “The aim of our party should be to realign British politics by NOT joining up with one of the other parties” My answer to that is obviously, why did they join up with the Cons in the first place, they knew what they were like and if they had remained independent their credibility would have remained intact, Brown, Teddy or any other person who became leader of the Liebore Party would have been put on the back foot if they had sided with the Cons in any legislation like the cons when they voted for the B’Liar (WMD) war.

      We have heard those promises before a few years ago I believe the orginal owner of this blog was going do a streaking act in the centre of London if something did or didn’t happen, he did not do his streaking act.

    Guardian and Beeb will no doubt give Clegg’s fireside chat a ringing endorsement. Clegg is the king maker and anything goes to get a Mili-led government.

    Clegg’s cleverest dirty trick this parliament was to torpedo boundary changes. Client state, postal voting and number of votes per labour constituency vs conservative constituency mean Mili can hardly fail to become PM in 2015.

    A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the road outside London.
    Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window.

    The driver rolls down the window and asks, “What’s going on?”

    “Terrorists have kidnapped the entire Parliament, Labour Conservative Liberals……the lot of ‘em and they’re asking
    for a £100 million pound ransom. Otherwise, they’re going to
    douse them all in petrol and set them on fire. We’re going
    from car to car collecting donations.”

    “How much is everyone giving on average?” the driver asks.

    The man replies, “Roughly a gallon.”

    A vote for the Lib Dems in 2015 would in fact be a vote for Labour, Can you imagine what that would mean for the UK economy post 2015 ?

Following the revelations about Brooks Newmark’s paisley pyjamas, Hugo Rifkind wonders in this week’s Speccie what other politicians wear in bed:

“Chuka Umunna will sleep in Calvin Klein briefs, all the better to catch a glimpse of himself in the mirror on his ceiling.”



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?
