    LOL – that’s Dave for you!

    Yes, but if only that were the Lib Dem position on this madcap Tory idea. I attach the following quote from this week’s briefing from the Chief Executive of the Party:

    “Chris Grayling has announced his intention to change the law so that if you are confronted by a burglar in your home and you fear for your safety, or the safety of others, and in the heat of the moment use force that is reasonable in the circumstances but in the cold light of day seems disproportionate, you will not be guilty of an offence unless a court deems that use of force to be ‘grossly’ disproportionate.

    This is not a major change in the law. It is more a clarification in the light of recent judgements.”

    So there you have it – not just Tory conference fluff – apparently we’re supporting it.

    And this follows on from apparent LD support for the ‘swap your employment rights for a couple of thousand shares’ scheme touted by Osborne earlier in the week – which now appears as a press release with quite a lot of detail jointly from the Treasury AND B.I.S.

    Nick/Vince – the silence is deafening on these…. can we have some clarification?

    Just to be clear – that’s a briefing by the Chief Executive of our Party, the Liberal Democrats…..

  • As I said to my very ailing No.2 son, I feel that our beloved coalition could go much further than encouraging us to kill burglars, thus saving the costs of prison places. We could also save the nation tens of billions in welfare payments and NHS costs by killing the poor and the poorly. Now, isn’t that a Wizard Wheeze?
