Lib Dems - remember them?

Great soundbite, but can you articulate your reasons in depth please.
Not in depth, but he’s obnoxious, sanctimonious and was quite content to pick up a Ministerial salary when in bed with the Tories in the Coalition Government.
Now, according to Davey, the Tories are scum and not fit to run the country, without the likes of Sir Ed to prop them up. Laughable. Don’t get me started on his Knighthood - very cosy.

He's a dyed in the wool eco-fanatic and aspires to lead the Lib Dems; a party second to none in their devotion to cynical opportunism, which is quite an achievement given the other collections of shysters who infest the national political space.

His only redeeming feature is that his success in the current Lib Dem leadership campaign will deny the position to a foul-looking creature, who was once detained on suspicion of domestic violence, while reminding the voting public of the talent-free and vacuous wasteland that the Lib Dems represent.

And there it is...
 
Davey and Moran, prospective Lib Dem leaders (Holy Foxtrot!), have both been interviewed by Iain Dale. I wonder if the competition should really be for the most barking mad. I've forgotten much of what Davey said other than his claims of brilliance and what he achieved in coalition despite the Tories. Women in men's bodies are women as far as he is concerned and so should use women's toilets, women's prisons etc. Women's lib types are obviously out of date and have offensive ideas about Darwinian evolutionary biology. JK Rowling grr...

Moran believes Begum should come back to the UK for justice to be served on her and for tight surveillance to be maintained on her. Prior to this she made the point that she was a child when she went to join IS. Moran wants the voting age brought down to 16. She supports free speech but not J K Rowling's "trope" about trans-women. That's an interesting take on free speech and an assumed offence. Some good calls showed her up as she tried to wriggle out of various things she had said. Dale suggested that a lot of her rhetoric was seen by many to be to the left. Bingo. She claims centre ground by accusing the Tories of having moved far to the right which is utter bollocks. Many believe the Tories have moved to the left of centre.

Apparently her, Davey and someone else took credit for work done by Maajid Nawaz revealing the Uyghur scandal in China but she didn't credit him until her tweets had 100,000 hits. Their egos will kill that party.
 
Who is Ed Davey???

His expression would suggest that little blemish on his top lip is a smear of poo.

He looks like he's straining to make a poo, perhaps he was attempting to make a policy announcement?
 
Hobhouse and Jardine stood down already. Cooper and Farron were declined.
The votes are in August, between Crazy Davey and Mad Moran.

Surely Moran will just go full praying mantis and eat Davey when the camera isn't looking and be declared the winner

Was it ever really a force to be reckoned with in the long run?

They are the illiberal successors of the Liberal Party, which had between 5-15 members for most of its history in the 20th century. They have returned to that inglorious state, calling to mind the famous words of Orwell:


“The mere words “Socialism” and “Communism” draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, “Nature Cure” quack, pacifist, and feminist in England. . . . The food-crank is by definition a person willing to cut himself off from human society in hopes of adding five years on to the life of his carcase; that is, a person out of touch with common humanity.”

I once sat in a theology lecture and ticked off every one of those among the socialists with whom I sat.

This I had to laugh at....
Oaten was a member of the Advisory Board of the Liberal Future think tank until it was wound up in 2005, and one of the contributors to The Orange Book: Reclaiming Liberalism in 2004—although he attracted anger from the book's co-authors at its launch event at the Lib Dem Conference in spring 2004 when he refused to answer questions about his own chapter, stating that it had actually been written by his research assistant, and that he had not even read it.

Genius...
