Mad, mad, you’ve all gone mad

Look, I can understand a good TV performance boosting the Lib Dems in the polls.

I can just about understand having several young kids running up to me in the street, looking admiringly at the stakeboard poster and one saying, “Are you voting for that Nick Clegg? I like him!”

At a stretch I can even understand The Sun running a positive story about the Liberal Democrats.

But Guido producing a wholly positive film about Nick Clegg? That volcanic ash must be hallucogenic.

  • To quote the great Jim Bowen: “Super Smashing Great!”

  • Just to enjoy this moment even more, try going over to Conservative Home. They are reduced to squabbling with Labour trolls about who will be able to offer PR first.

    Tee, hee! Loving it, loving it, loving it.

    Please, God, let Nick win the next debate.

  • Great vid. Twas the guy sharing the KP nuts with Nick the same one that questioned him during the Q & As in Cardiff the other day? I swear I saw his face three times waiting for the hard working womble to return for his dinner.

  • DC makes me laugh 20th Apr '10 - 9:12pm check this out if you want a chuckle, it went around on twitter.

  • This should be played at every Lib Dem HQ. This gets me fired up and ready to go (quoting another person Mr. Clegg is being compared to).

    Great video! You don’t think Guido was trying to be tongue in cheek do you, as kicked the ball into his own net.

    But where can I get an “I agree with Nick” T shirt? They look fab & groovy.

  • It’s notable that a few on the libertarian right are starting to think that an election that smashes the Lab-Con pendulum of statism might be a good thing. A poster on called seanT who is famously anti-{tax, state, EU, etc} is now talking up the Lib Dems as a route to PR and reconnecting parties to the popular opinion. Perhaps Guido now senses the same?

  • I just wandered if anyone else is feeling the way I do at the moment.
    I have always been a supporter of the liberal party and thought I was always going to be but reading through one of your leaflets and seeing a section asking for money donations towards supporting your party has left me wondering if any money I was to pledge would be going towards plush leather interiors on your campaign bus?
    I found this very off putting and it has left me questioning which way I will go.
    It would be a shame if you were to lose votes based on this assumption but surely I’m not alone in thinking this way?

    Carol: What in the name of holy irrelevance are you talking about? Do you think the Lib Dems shouldn’t ask for donations? I’m confused.

  • Carol, no idea what the buss costs, but it’ll be a tiny proportion of campaign costs, and pretty sure it’s leased or rented. I care not, but if it really matters to you, give your money to a local campaign.

    Personally, having sat in awful busses for long journeys, I’d rather the leaders weren’t knackered and uncomfortable when they turn up to help me campaign.

  • I dont know alot about politics (hence my question) but have been assured that supporting this party is the best way forward, I hope I have not caused offence, please forgive my ignorance,Lib dem have had the majority in my area for a decade now,I hope it continues

  • Malcolm Todd 23rd Apr '10 - 8:07pm

    No offence taken, Carol, and I hope none caused in return. I was just a bit baffled, not having heard anything about plush leather interiors! Do follow MatGB’s sensible suggestion and donate to your local Lib Dem campaign. If it’s anything like ours, it won’t even have spare money for a comfortable bike saddle… 🙂
