LibDems Feline Funny

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 vain attempt at increasing your popularity worked for Buzzfeed…

Another LibDem Arrested For Child Abuse

Yello’, Yello’, Yello’: Cops Called Over LibDem Sleaze

The Metropolitan Police are investigating the LibDems after their former chief fundraiser Ibrahim Taguri was filmed telling an undercover ‘donor’ “when you do this, the doors will open for you”. The Electoral Commission says they have passed on the evidence from the Telegraph/Dispatches sting to the fuzz:

“Based on the information that the Commission has seen, the alleged offence in this case centres on the potential evasion of restrictions on donations in contravention of section 61 of PPERA and is ultimately a criminal matter. As a result, the Commission has also passed the information that it has received to MPS who are aware of the allegations and are considering them…. Any decisions about what further steps to take at this stage in relation to potential evasion of restrictions on donations in either case rest with the Metropolitan Police Service.”

Will they be interviewing the Deputy Prime Minister?

This is the Worst Thing the LibDems Have Ever Done

Worse than tuition fees.

Hancock Making Most of Last Week in Parliament

Self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock will only be an MP for a few more days, so odd then that the dodgy old Russophile has been putting down some extremely specific questions about the UK’s defence capabilities:

  • Mike Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many Royal Navy pilots are in training to enable them to land a fast jet on the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carriers.
  • Mike Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how much has been spent on maintenance of HMS Vanguard in each of the last three years.
  • Mike Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how much has been spent on general maintenance of Trident missiles in each of the last three years.
  • Mike Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, on how many days Trident submarines have not been at sea in each of the last three years.

Stepping down to spend more time with his KGB handlers?


Rapt Commons in Thrall of LibDem Budget

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury will be heard. By some…

Sleazy LibDem: “The Doors Will Open For You”


Ibrahim Taguri, the former chief fundraiser for the LibDems, a parliamentary candidate and a member of Clegg’s inner circle, is filmed by the Telegraph telling a fake Indian businessman offering to make an illegal donation:

“Well, when you do this, the doors will open for you.



Lord Oakeshott Wears a Red Rosette

Knocking on doors in Thurrock yesterday alongside Labour’s candidate Polly Billington: ‘independent’ former LibDem peer Lord Oakeshott. Complete with red rosette. Making it official…

UPDATE: Local UKIP opponent Tim Aker is quick to pile in: “Labour’s campaign in Thurrock seems to amount to drafting in London activists and LibDem millionaires”[…]


Clegg and Cameron at Sixes and Sevens

Red magazine have been quizzing the party leaders…

Tell us in six words why we should vote Lib Dem?

“Stronger economy. Fairer society. Opportunity for all.”

Yep, that would be seven words.

Tell us in six words why we should vote Conservative?



Hippies Turn Clegg’s Office Into “Collectively-Run Learning Space”

Representatives of the ‘Free University of Sheffield’ have released a statement to the global media:

“we have transformed the space, symbolic of betrayal and the politics of the neoliberal establishment into an autonomous, collectively-run learning space. Among other things we will be running a seminar on the failures of liberal democracy”

Alas, “a core of 10-15 students” only managed to get into Clegg’s constituency office for a few minutes to unfurl a banner before the coppers turned up and turfed them out.[…]


Cable in Code of Conduct Row

Vince Cable is in trouble after two West London business leaders referred him to the Prime Minister and Cabinet Secretary over an apparent breach of the Ministerial Code of Conduct. The chief executives of West London Business and the Hounslow Chamber of Commerce have written to the PM and Jeremy Heywood after Cable was listed as a speaker at an anti-Heathrow expansion rally in his capacity as Business Secretary:

We are very concerned that the Secretary of State appears to be attending the rally in an official capacity, on behalf of the Government, rather than as constituency Member.



Land Grab Lobbying LibDem’s Massive Conflict of Interest

LibDem peer Lord Taylor is lobbying for housing firms to have the power to seize farmland to build “garden villages” of up to 5,000 homes. He has just published a pamphlet calling for “new local development corporations” to be given the power to confiscate land, compensating them at just 50% more than the agricultural land value.[…]


GRINNING HERE: LibDems Train Members in How to “Keep Smiling”

Desperate times call for desperate measures for weary LibDems. Things are so bad that the party has organised a special “training session” for candidates and MPs on how to “keep smiling” as they go back to their constituencies and prepare for electoral oblivion.[…]

Quote of the Day

Trump jokes about media bias…

“The media is even more biased against me than ever before. You want the proof? Michelle Obama gives a speech and everyone loves it. It’s fantastic. They think she’s absolutely great. My Wife Melania gives the exact same speech! And people get on her case! And I don’t get it! I don’t know Why!”
