Quote of the Day

Nick Clegg on LibDem sex scandals:

“Of course I am not sitting on any allegations that have yet to come to light, I would never do that.”

Quote of the Day

Gloria de Piero on the LibDems choosing a man as their new deputy leader:

“This result comes as little surprise when you remember Nick Clegg leads a Parliamentary Party which has as many men with knighthoods as it has women MPs. When it comes to women’s representation, the Lib Dems really need to move up a gear. With just seven out of 57 MPs, they score even worse than the Tories.”

Quote of the Day

Jon Snow on sex and women:

“Sex comes into every evaluation of a woman, there’s no doubt about it. It’s there. Once you’ve established a friendship or a working relationship with a woman, it’s parked. But it’s an interesting barrier. When you’ve gone through it and arrived at the other side, it’s never a problem again. Well I’m not saying it is a problem at all, it’s rather a delicious thing really, ‘what might have been?’ or ‘what could be’. It’s a natural animal element of sustaining life.”

Quote of the Day

Nigel Farage is asked by Andrew Neil about his party’s support for a compulsory dress code for taxi drivers and repainting trains in traditional colours:

“Do we? News to me… I’ve never read that. I’ve no idea what you’re talking about. When it comes to websites, I’m not the expert.”

Quote of the Day

Nick Clegg’s former aide Bridget Harris quits the party over its handling of the Rennard scandal:

“You go into politics and you accept the notion of a collective agreement for the greater good. After the 15 years I worked in the Lib Dems I realised there is no greater good, just everyone doing a s**t job.”
