5 recent Lib Dem tweets

>> @alexwilcock 1 member of #UKLabour has votes worth 1000s x others. Explains why they say equal constituencies = “gerrymandering” #ThroughTheLookingGlass

>> @cllrpaulankers One member three or four votes is a bit of a weird concept #labourgerrymandering

>> @Lucy_Watt Loving @johnprescott arguing with @campbellclaret on Newsnight. You can’t beat British politics 🙂

>> @OllyGrender A great day not to be the partner of a politician which as a lifestyle choice totally sucks – with few exceptions (sympathy 2 Ffion)

>> @swhitebread Blair seems to think leading your party to electoral defeat is more ‘disastrous’ than leading your country into an illegal war. Says it all.
