LibDems: How To & How Not To

Guido gets on average 17 press releases a day from LibDems – because I assume a rumour once went round the LDYS that I was a closet LD backer. Well Guido is a libertine but, I’ll be buggered if…

Scottish Charlie K shows how it is done-

Commenting on the news of England’s victory in The Ashes, Charles Kennedy said:

“England’s victory is historic, and I send hearty congratulations to the team. It has been impossible not to get caught up by the excitement and sense of good will in the past few days.”

Commenting on Jeremy Clarkson’s Honorary degree awarded by Oxford Brookes University today, Tom Brake, Lib Dem Transport Spokesman (is that the crappiest name for a transport spokesman possible) shows how not to do it:

“It is a very odd decision to award Jeremy Clarkson an honorary degree. His glamorisation of speed and power, and reckless approach to the environment, may amuse some and frustrate others. But they do not constitute any form of academic achievement.

Guido is no petrol-head but, and I’m guessing here, people interested in transport, cars and that kind of stuff, might like Clarkson?

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
