Daily View 2×2: 17 February 2010

It’s Wednesday 17th February and for me, like so many other Lib Dem activists, another day of delivering leaflets and knocking on doors (plus a Council meeting in the evening).

On this day in 1933 prohibition ended in the United States, and in 2003 London got a new congestion charge. There, wasn’t that interesting.

2 Lib Dem-related Stories

Lib Dem voters are the kinkiest

Thanks to Sara Scarlett for spotting this report in the Telegraph. There’s lots there on the sex lives of supporters of the three main parties, including:

If it’s instant gratification you’re after, Labour voters are the place to go. One in 20 (five per cent) say that they expect to have sex on the first date, compared to three per cent of Lib Dems and a meagre two per cent of the frosty Conservatives. Going out with a Liberal Democrat could be a frustrating experience: one-third (33 per cent) will make you wait until the fifth date or – if you can imagine such a torment – even longer.

Forget the policies, ignore the personalities – this is how elections should be decided.

Lib Dem councillor in court over racial harrassment

As the BBC reports:

A councillor has appeared in court charged with racial harassment following an incident where she allegedly abused a fellow member.

Liberal Democrat Shirley Brown is said to have called Asian Conservative Jay Jethwa a “coconut” during a debate at Bristol City Council in February 2009.

2 Must-Read Blog Posts

What are other Liberal Democrat bloggers saying? Here are two posts that have caught the eye from the Liberal Democrat Blogs aggregator:

  • Freethinking Economist takes Guido to task over inflation

    Guido is SO confused on this one. Because he seems not to understand how annual inflation figures are created, he presents the first fall in the index as proof that INFLATION is settling in.

  • Thanks in part to the work of our MEPs, European cars are less polluting than ever – but are those at the top of the EU practising what they preach? Chris Davies MEP reports.

Spotted any other great posts in the last day from blogs that aren’t on the aggregator? Do post up a comment sharing them with us all.
