  • Nick said: “Encouraging people to shop locally for their unicorns isn’t just another unrealistic Lib Dem policy…”

  • “We haven’t set a date yet but we’re registered at Liberal Democrat Image.”

  • MPs take a stand against Legg rulings:

    “as far as I was aware unicorns were entirely within the rules” claimed local MP John Leech. “It would be ridiculous and unfair if I were made to pay this back when others have been allowed to claim for basilisks and moat trolls.”


    NC: “So does this powdered unicorn horn actually work then John?”
    JL: “Not if you keep the bag”


    NC: (whispers through clenched teeth): “I wanted the green one…”
    JL: (hisses aside): “and I wanted Health… smile for the camera please Nicholas…”

    Is Nick saying “Not more than 30 women, but don’t imagine for a moment I’m going to tell you how many men”?

  • John Leech looks mighty pleased that he has the green one.

  • JL to Nick `Shouldn’ t the Lib Dems produce a sustainable `man bag`?`

  • NC “I’ve decided to show my support for “Alfie” Thomas”

  • NC “My Alma Mater, Westminster, once raced some other school* for the right to wear the colour pink. We won then (and we’ll win now!)”

    * Eton College

    John says:

    “Right Nick, now you’re nearly ready for our trip to Canal Street”

  • Nick to John, “good to see you are praticing your skills as a salesman for when you have to go back to your old job at McDonalds after getting battered at the next election”.
