  • 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.
