Willie Rennie and John Prescott crack a joke on Twitter…

The last two big Liberal Democrat by-election winners have not let their place in Liberal Democrat legend go to their heads. Mike Thornton MP (I am not going to get tired writing that in a hurry) was interviewed on BBC News this morning while, as he told us, he was heading to buy a new head for his shaver.

Willie Rennie, who pulled off a spectacular victory in 2006 and has gone on to become leader of the Scottish Party was not too grand to make the tea for us the other night as we were phone banking for Eastleigh.

Willie tweeted my photo of him serving up our drinks and sparked some interest from none other than John Prescott. I thought you might like to see the ensuing banter.

Then Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson asked him about the picture in the background.

    “A Lib Dem and a couple of mugs” aren’t they called three party talks? Or reaching across the floor
