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…

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

Civil servants are becoming increasingly annoyed at how little time Energy Secretary Ed Davey is spending on the  job.

A Whitehall source whispers to Guido: “He spends just two days in the department and the rest of time clinging to his seat.”
