  • Off topic, but I have just noticed that Clare Blair, whose posts appear on Liberal Tweets, is (and openly describes herself as) a Labour party member. It is sensible not to insist that those whose posts appear on Liberal Tweets must necessarily be paid-up Lib Dem members, but it seems a step too far to accord the hospitality of the site to some one who is a Labour party member.

  • As we have such good contact with Obama-Biden camp, can we get them to pop over now and then to show support for the Clegg half of the Coalition, speak at LD Conference, and give us a bity of financial ‘advice’?
