Continuity Clegg: Winning Here Graph

The Clegg fans over LibDemVoice have launched a delayed rebuttal operation, releasing a poll showing 54% of 992 members want him to stay and 39% want him to stand down. Always one for statistical excellence, Guido brings you the findings in a format LibDem HQ would be proud of:

Nothing to worry about…

UPDATE: Vince has broken cover slam Oakeshott for commissioning the ICM poll. He calls it inexcusable.

Where’s Cleggy?

Bad Night for Pervs

Self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock has lost the Portsmouth council seat he has held for 43 years to UKIP. In fact Handycock came third, picking up just 628 votes. UKIP’s winning candidate Julie Swan twists the knife:

“It’s about time people were represented by a normal human being and someone who works for a living.”

Even worse news for the LibDems in Kingston, where they lost control of the council to the Tories. The fact that the last LibDem Kingston council leader has just been jailed for child porn offences can’t have helped. Good riddance. 

WATCH: LibDem Minister Says Party Has Lost ‘Humanity’ in Power

Less than two hours after the polls closed, Lynne Featherstone was already going violently off message:

A Liberal Democrat government minister says that the Liberal Democrats have lost their humanity because they joined the government. Well she better go to save her soul, right?

GUY NEWS SPECIAL: Would You Really Vote for the LibDems?

The LibDems yesterday released an attack video highlighting all the loony things UKIP members have said. But the record of Clegg’s own MPs and councillors is nothing to be proud of either. Would you really vote for these people?

Well, would you?

Friends of Gove: “Dom is #Winning”
Cummings Threatens Downing Street With More Leaks

Do we get the impression that the Secretary of State for Education might not be taking his peace accord with the LibDems entirely seriously?

Exhibit A) The joint Times this morning with David Laws, written at the insistence of Clegg:

“…you might expect the two of us to be crouched under our desks like the last survivors in a Bruce Willis movie, only popping out occasionally to blast each other with shotguns.But the reality of politics — even coalition politics — is a lot more prosaic than some like to suggest.”

Guido is guessing Gove got to choose the by-line picture too.

Exhibit B) Openly laughing about it when doorstepped by Sky’s Darren McCaffery:

Chortle, chortle. Bye.

Exhibit C) Friends of Mr Gove gloat to Guido “Dom is winning.” Cummings is still blogging, rather menacingly today:

“I blew this up because I want people in No. 10 to realise that every time between now and next May that they interfere in the DfE with some stupid gimmick, the story might go badly wrong because someone will leak something. I want Cameron to grit his teeth and say ‘Cleggy, I know you need your gimmicks, and you can have them, but why don’t you go and play somewhere else, if you go near the DfE again, it will probably just go tits up.”

Cummings version of yesterday’s events is well worth a read. If only for his shredding of Craig Oliver…

Clegg has picked a fight with a relentless fanatic with nothing to lose. He’s not going to win this.

Doddery Old Vince Fails to Grasp Royal Mail Basics

What could be worse than hearing something come through your letterbox and seeing that it is just some campaign material from Vince Cable? How about the fact that the Business Secretary had posted it stamp-less so you have to fork out the £1.53 unpaid postage to the postman. You might have sold Royal Mail Vince, but you still have to put a stamp on it…

“The Strange Sex of LibDem England”

Someone is getting up to all sorts of mischief down in Portsmouth, circulating this attack leaflet piling into the LibDems over their many sex scandals:

Jeremy Thorpe, Cyril Smith, Rennard and Hancock - you can’t help but think whoever is sticking this through people’s letterboxes has a point…

Black and White Bun Fight

The reaction to Labour’s comedy PEB has been almost unanimously negative, yet the LibDems have felt compelled to hit back with some rapid rebuttal:

Guido hears there were some division internally about the Labour ad spot. Did Axelrod sign that off then?

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
