LibDems Vote Against Liberalism

A motion attacking the Coalition’s Free Schools plan has just been “very clearly carried” on the conference floor. A bit of a headache for Clegg given the how proud the LibDems are of their internal democratic strategy. It’s not quite a full-scale revolt and given the number of council strongholds the LibDems have, they are clearly just voting in self-interest. Guido imagines there are two drafts of the DPM’s speech for this afternoon…

Or cue a frantic rewrite.

Quote of the Day

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
