Six of Cable’s Twickenham LibDems Back Plot to Oust Clegg

What do the LibDems pictured above have in common? Well, for starters they are all councillors or council candidates in Vince Cable’s constituency of Twickenham, all featured on his local LibDem website. Here are their names from left to right:

Susan Burningham – council candidate in Twickenham Riverside
Roger Crouch – council candidate in Twickenham Riverside
Ben Khosa – councillor in St Margaret’s & North Twickenham
Jonathan Cardy – councillor in Fulwell & Hampton Hill
John Coombs – councillor in Heathfield
Arnie Gibbons – ex-councillor in Whitton

What else do they have in common? They have all signed the LibDems4Change petition organised by anti-Clegg plotters calling on their leader to resign. Six key figures in Vince Cable’s local party are signed up members of the public plot to oust Clegg. Mathematically improbable when you consider that only 1% of the party membership is publicly backing the putsch. By coincidence Lord Oakeshott was in Twickenham as recently as Monday last week. Presumably Vince will tell us he knows nothing about this either…
