Clegg Gets Brillo’d

Nick Clegg follows in the footsteps of his old spinner James McGrory and takes a pasting from Andrew Neil on the single market. Brillo’s killer line: “Isn’t it time the LibDems had a rebrand and dropped the Democrat?” Cue Clegg silent death stare…

Sarah Olney Walks Out of Interview, Spin Doctor Forced to Take Over

Sarah Olney has walked out of a car crash interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRadio after a spin doctor intervened and said she “had to go”. The new LibDem MP was unable to answer simple questions about Brexit and the single market. Steep learning curve.

Farron: Richmond Win is Rejection of Trump, Brexit and 2015 Election

Tim Farron is getting more than a little ahead of himself claiming Sarah Olney’s win is a rejection of Trump and the 2015 election too. Richmond Park was a 21% swing by a Remain constituency against its incumbent Leave MP. Food for thought for Labour Remainer MPs with pro-Leave constituencies…

LibDem Fake News in Richmond

fake

The LibDems have a reputation as some of the dirtiest campaigners around, and they are living up to it in Richmond Park. Local resident Paul Waugh, 50, had the above fake newspaper put through his door. It’s more convincing than the usual literature used by political parties, and even goes as far as including reports from “a senior Gazette reporter” who does not exist. All with the aim of hoodwinking voters. The most shameless fake news yet?

Bob Geldof Embarrasses LibDems

Instead of learning the lessons from his referendum flotilla humiliation, Bob Geldof has gone to canvas for the LibDems in Richmond today. He’s been chanting “Zac is crap” for the cameras like a poundshop Eddie Izzard. Sad.

UPDATE:

Well done to the LibDems. This has gone about as well as Miliband and Russell Brand.

Richmond LibDem Reveals Pro-Heathrow Reading Habits

lib-dem-heathrow-shelfie

The LibDem candidate in Richmond has given a shocker of an interview to the Standard, offering a highly implausible explanation for her Brexit flip-flop and bizarrely blaming an aide for another disastrous interview in which she attacked Zac Goldsmith. Sarah Olney also posed for a picture in front of her bookshelf, awkwardly revealing her pro-Heathrow expansion reading habits. Heathrow’s Terminal 5 – History in the Making describes it as “an iconic piece on infrastructure, which is a tribute to the best of the world’s design and engineering.” Richmond LibDems have been bigging up Olney’s anti-Heathrow expansion credentials, despite the fact her husband helped build Terminal 5. She finished her Standard interview by admitting: “If I don’t win, I’ve got a nice house, a great husband, lovely children and a good job to go back to.” nice house paid for by her great husband’s work for Heathrow…

LibDem Richmond Candidate Encounters Turbulence

olney

The LibDem by-election campaign in Richmond has two key messages: that their candidate Sarah Olney will vote against Article 50 and oppose Heathrow expansion even more so than Zac. How is that going?

First Olney was forced to delete her website after saying we should go ahead with Brexit:

“Britain is leaving the EU – OK, I accept that. I don’t think we should re-run the referendum. I think we should stick to the course that has been decided.”

Now it turns out her husband helped to build Heathrow Terminal 5. “Town planner” Ben Olney’s CV boasts that before his current job he was “working on the delivery of Terminal 5 at Heathrow”.

Sarah has plastered Ben’s face all over her leaflets and heavily involved him in her campaign. Richmond LibDems have an anti-Brexit candidate who wants Brexit to go ahead, an anti-Heathrow expansion candidate whose husband helped expand Heathrow… 

Clegg Makes £60,000 in a Month, £15,000 For Doing HIGNFY

clegg

How much did Nick Clegg make for hosting Have I Got News For You last month? The new Register of Interests reveals he trousered a cool £15,000 for the 12 hour gig, which comes to £1,250-an-hour. Clegg upped his hourly rate for consultancy firm MCI, charging them £30,800 for a single speech in Amsterdam a few weeks later. It was 14 hours work, so £2,200-an-hour. Clegg also recently received a £20,500 second advance instalment for his new book. So in the last month, Clegg pocketed over £60,000 in outside earnings. He’s making a success of Brexit…

UPDATE: The Taxpayers’ Alliance point out: “Worth remembering that Clegg still receives a taxpayer funded £100,000 allowance for being the former Deputy PM.”

Lib Dem Logic Says 40% of Own MPs Should Go

libdemzac

Over the weekend the LibDem by-election candidate Sarah Olney suggested Brexit-backing Zac Goldsmith shouldn’t be Richmond Park’s MP because he “represents a constituency that voted 73% remain in the referendum.” On that logic Nick Clegg should step down in Sheffield, which voted 51% Leave, and Tom Brake should quit in Carshalton (where the wider Sutton area voted 54% Leave).[…] Read the rest

LibDem Shadow Silliness

shad

The LibDems are sending out press releases from the “LibDem Shadow Chancellor” and the “LibDem Shadow Home Secretary”. The LibDems do not have a Shadow Chancellor or a Shadow Home Secretary. This is not how parliament works, no matter how much the LibDems want to make themselves sound important.[…] Read the rest

LibDems Make It About Zac’s Wealth

Unknown LibDem Richmond candidate Sarah Olney has used her first national newspaper interview to launch a clumsy attack on Zac Goldsmith’s wealth. Speaking to the MoS, Olney went after Zac over the money he inherited from his dad, claiming he won’t understand what it means if the price of Marmite goes up.[…] Read the rest

‘Jihad Jenny’ Tonge Joins LibDem By-Election Campaign

The LibDem by-election campaign in Richmond is off to an ominous start, with the local party yesterday welcoming disgraced ex-MP Jenny Tonge back into the fold. Tonge is a former Richmond Park MP – despite losing the whip in the Lords she is still a LibDem member, the party has ignored her string of anti-Semitism scandals including one just last week.[…] Read the rest

David Ward Hits Back at Home Affairs Inquiry

dward

What does David “The Jews” Ward think about the Home Affairs select committee report on anti-Semitism, Guido hears you ask? The serving LibDem councillor reckons “The Zionists are winning”, telling his followers to read the Chakrabarti inquiry instead. Tim Farron gave Ward his backing, refused to admit he was a repeat offender and wouldn’t call his rant about “Jews” anti-Semitic.[…] Read the rest
