LibDemVoice Today Compares Charlie Hebdo to KKK

The first line of this blog published by LibDemVoice today tells you all you need to know: “Let me start by saying that the attack on Charlie Hebdo was a despicable attack on freedom of expression. However…” Nope.

It’s loony author, George Potter, continues: “Charlie Hebdo was, and is, a racist, xenophobic and bigoted  publication. Sometimes it attacked powerful targets like the Catholic Church but it was largely white men attacking powerless, marginalised and oppressed groups in France, especially Muslims who face horrific levels of discrimination. That’s not “satire”, it’s bullying.” It mocked Jews, Muslims, Christians, white people, black people and politicians.

He goes on to compare Charlie Hebdo to the KKK and EDL: “Imagine if a KKK organisation in the US had been bombed. Would people really be saying, without even thinking about who they’re endorsing, “I am the EDL””.

Except Charlie Hebdo were not the KKK or the EDL, were they George? They were just a satirical magazine.

Clegg’s Facebook Q&A on Education Goes As Well As Expected

For some reason the DPM thought it would be a good idea to hold a Q&A session on Facebook about education today. The results were entirely predictable:

Anyone would have thought Nick Clegg was a masochist…

LibDems Spent £1.5 Million on Winning One Euro Seat

The Electoral Commission today reveals how much each party spent on their European election campaigns. The big bucks splashed by the Tories and UKIP meant they paid six figures for each seat won. Labour got best value for money, spending just over a million quid for their 20 seats, or just over £50,000 per MEP.

The LibDems blew £1.5 million with just one MEP to show for it…

GREEN SURGE: LibDems Slump to Fifth Place

Two polls in two consecutive days now have the Greens ahead of the LibDems, with YouGov now putting Clegg in fifth place. Natalie Bennett’s party meanwhile rise from 7% to 8% this morning. The Staggers ask why the LibDems aren’t panicking, though Labour should also be watching the Green Surge with concern. It’s their votes the Greens are coming for…

WATCH: Peter Cook’s Jeremy Thorpe Acquittal Sketch

The night Jeremy Thorpe was acquitted of conspiracy to murder his alleged male lover in 1979, satirist Peter Cook delivered this sketch of Mr Justice Cantley’s summing up at the Secret Policeman’s Ball. Almost as if he thought there was an establishment cover up…

UPDATE:

Speaker’s Spinner Eyes Up Browne’s Seat

Readers will remember John Bercow’s former spinner Justine McGuinness, who was forced to resign after Guido revealed her bizarre anti-Tory rant at LibDem conference. Where is she now? McGuinness is in the running to replace the outgoing Jeremy Browne as MP for Taunton Deane, last night making the shortlist to be the new LibDem candidate for the seat. If Justine makes it back to parliament, the “completely impartial” Speaker will treat her as he would any other MP, won’t he?

Davey Diverts His Energy
