LibDems Promise to “End Online Privacy”

The LibDems were forced to make a swift apology yesterday after an email sent to supporters promised to “end online privacy.” Thanks for clearing that up

Inside the Bizarre Lib Dem Manifesto Launch

IMG_20150415_101853

Guido headed across the river to the Lib Dem Manifesto launch held in a Battersea warehouse that has been turned into a “creative space.” It was so creative that to accuses the venue, you had to wander down a graffiti strewn brick passageway that opened up into bizarre neon nightclub. At the front was a garishly lit cage where the main event would take place, while strewn around  the edges were Maoist canvases of the dear leader himself in a number of ideological poses. Nick Clegg painting a wall, Nick Clegg watering vegtables, Nick Clegg holding a hammer…

All the press big wigs were there. Quentin Letts had positioned himself nonchalantly leaning against a rusty pillar at the front, sceptically surveying the sandal clad crowd, while Faisal Islam stood agitated at the back, pleading with his producer to stop patronising him. “Just speak clearly and I’ll be fine, I’m just going to do a show and tell”…

Clegg walked into the neon lit ring stage and with casual abandon began addressing the party faithful. “We made Britain better,” clap clap. “The Lib Dems would add heart to a Conservative government and a brain to a Labour one,” clap clap. “Most people want a a stronger economy and a fairer society,” clap clap. Farage bad. Salmond bad. Nick Clegg good, clap clap. The words were coming out with the rhythmic determination of a seppuku death poem. 

With a final ripple of applause and the finishing line in sight, a relieved Clegg settled into taking questions with a rambling self-assuredness. But the venue gremlins weren’t going to be so kind. The sound system went haywire, someone kicked over a fancy LED uplight and the broadcasters gave up on waiting for the thing to finish and started broadcasting from the back in defiance of the hushing from the Lib Dem supporters. They should have spend less on fancy lights and more on a PA system…

Lib Dems Come Out For SnapChat

In an attempt to secure some much needed credibility ahead of the election, the Liberal Democrats have come out in support of teenage sexting apps such as Snapchat and WhatsApp. If by any chance they find themselves in government again, they plan to introduce a measure that will prevent the government from obstructing availability, or weakening the encryption technologies that lie at the heat of Snapchat type applications:

“individuals and families need to have confidence that their private information, photos and conversations are not vulnerable to hackers”

The measure was announced as part of the conveniently timed launch of the Lib Dems’ Digital Rights Bill which they would introduce if they are part of another coalition government. Someone needs to defend saucy phone pics…

From Saudi to Suffolk

Most candidates try to make the most of any local links they have to the constituency in which they are running. No one can say this of David Chappell, the LibDem hopeful in Bury St Edmunds:

He’ll be hoping the voters don’t Riyadh too much into it…

Ashcroft Poll: Clegg Behind in Sheffield Hallam

If you go to the LibDems’ website this morning, this is what you see. Apparently it’s all because when Joey Essex met Nick Clegg he thought the party was called the “Liberal Democats”. Well using cat pictures in a […]

Quote of the Day

Mary Creagh’s coded attack on Ed Miliband…

‘I want the country to be united behind a single vision, we aren’t going to do it by sort of having a Rubik’s Cube approach to politics’.
