Confessing LDV team members named

Some rights reserved by Lori GreigOn Christmas Eve some of the Liberal Democrat Voice team made public some interesting “confessions”. At that stage it was a case of “no names, no pack drills”. Readers had a chance to guess which team member made which confession. (There were a few jokers in there to make it even more interesting).

Now we can reveal the identity of each penitent:

Confession #1
I once laid down in the middle of the main street of a large home counties town to stop the traffic.
Paul Walter

Confession #2
I got married partly as a result of a Stephen Tall Christmas poll.
Mark Valladares

Confession #3
I got detention for skipping school to go canvassing in a General Election.
Caron Lindsay

Confession #4
I once turned up at BBC television centre to appear on BBC News 24 to talk about land value taxation, but ended up being ushered in to appear in auditions for the part of Virgil Tracy in the forthcoming remake of “Thunderbirds”.

Confession #5
When a penniless student, I appeared in an “erotic video” called “The reluctant civil servant rides again”

Confession #6
I was fined for doing 60mph on a road where I had successfully campaigned to get the speed limit reduced to 50mph.
Mary Reid

Confession #7
In 1994 I voted for Tony Blair to be Labour leader and John Prescott to be deputy leader.
Stephen Tall

Confession #8
While I was a student, I was hospitalised after taking part in an all too life-like and alcoholic late night re-enactment of Donoghue v Stevenson.

  • I would like to point out that the reason 8 was one I picked as plausible was because I was a law student and we had drunken re-enactments of various cases…

    Thanks Jennie. I am gratified. I made that one up with a certain LDV member in mind. …A certain ex-legal student who said he had nothing to confess from his university years….a likely story!
