Kennedy Scared?

The Torygraph diary got hold of a document left abandoned on a Commons photocopier: minutes of the Lib Dems’ strategy meeting for the next general election. Under ”Points from CK” the memo states: “When set piece bids come through for me (i.e. one-to-ones on Question Time, etc) my preference is to face studio audiences outside the metropolis – and avoid Scotland as well. I tend to fare best, I feel, in Northern England venues.”

LibDem HQ’s spin line is that “The memo was drafted by Charles… We are not running scared of London or Scottish audiences. This is simply a question of getting him round the country.” Yeah right.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
