    We have spent the last 10 or 15 years trying to shed the perceived Lib Dem image of “woolly pully, bearded sandal brigade” to become credible politicians in smart suits and smartly dressed.

It’s going to be hard enough to claw our way back up to the top – please don’t scupper our chances by using this type of terminology!

  • Rebekah. You’re SUCH an anorak!
