The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Surreal Alternative part three

All in all the LIb Dems must be glad their party conference is finally over. Not a particularly good one. The icing must be the news that they are now being investigated as to whether a million pound donation has broken any rules. Read all about it here.

According to Michael Brown, the Swiss-based financier who owns the firm at the centre of the donation scandal, he feels "totally let down" by the Lib Dems.

"If the people who handled my donation were elected to run the economy, I would not be happy - it would be disastrous," . ...."As a donor, I rely on the party to verify that the donation is proper. In the case of the donation made by my company, very little due diligence was undertaken."

If the Lib Dems are the answer - it must be the wrong question!

    The mistake they made with the Conference was failing to amuse the media. Usually they do this with the typical nutty motions about hard core porn for convicts/teenagers and voting rights for serial killers (these are thenb ignored until we reprint them at the next general election ;) ).

    This left the press board and looking for a story. Mutters of discontent about the carrot like one's leadership thus became national news...
