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!

      Claptrap from a definite has-been yesterday’s-man.
      Can’t live down the tuition fee lie Cleggy, you will never live it down.
      Just like in-me-pants Bryant.

      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.

      Engleesh for beginners says:

      Shoe-In or Shoo-In :

      A race horse so fast that you can merely shoo it across the finish line rather than having to urge it on with stronger measures is a “shoo-in”: an easy winner.

      It is particularly unfortunate when this expression is misspelled “shoe-in” because to “shoehorn” something in is to squeeze it in with great difficulty.

    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.

    If the limpdums get more than 10% at the 2014 and 2015 elections I will run naked down Whitehall.

      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.

    Postal Vote says:

    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.

    Hamish Macbeth says:

    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.”

    John Tandy says:

    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 ?

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
