Obvoluted opinions...


"3, 2, 1...you're back in the room"
Tim Montgomerie notes that most of the ear big wigs: Hughes, Farron, Cable and Huhne all seem to be vying for position amongst themselves both in the 'who will take over from Clegg' stakes and in out-doing each other in their derogatory remarks about the Conservatives. At least Vince gets one thing spot-on (however, Vince the Cable is also calling for more quantitative easing from the Bank of England):
"Many of our problems are home-grown. Gordon Brown regularly advised the rest of the world to follow his British model of growth. But the model was flawed. It led to the highest level of household debt in relation to income in the world. It produced a dangerously inflated property bubble. It encouraged a bloated, banking sector while manufacturing declined at an unprecedented rate. Then, they socialised the costs of the crash though a massive budget deficit, the biggest of any major economy. His disciple, Ed Balls, has – sort of – apologised but advocates policies that would repeat the disaster."

Nice caption!

Watched a little bit of the Lib Dems conference today and it was very cosy, all done in the round like a Led Zep Uni gig from 1969.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) I've seen almost none of any of it so far. Lily-livered liberal lapdogs followed by Labour luvvie lies.
