What I wrote at Lib Dem Voice

February 06, 2007

Meanwhile, over at ConservativeHome

Tim Montomerie has kindly e-mailed to let me know that ConservativeHome has highlighted yesterday’s posting in which I speculated about the speech Ming Campbell might care to make in the event of a Hung Parliament after the next election.

I’ve not had chance to read all the comments yet - been in meetings all day - but I was especially tickled by these two:
Smug, sanctimonius and typically Lib-Dem.

and
No deals with the Lib Dems in any circumstances. Our position should be that in the event of a hung Parliament with a Conservative minority, we will signal to Her Majesty our willingness to form a minority Government. If she is not minded to invite us to do so, our advice would be to call another election.
We should informally tell Labour that we would support the same proposal from them in a reversed postion.
*** IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE LIB DEMS ARE LOCKED OUT AT ALL COSTS ***

In fairness, by the standards of ConHome, those are actually quite charmingly cogent messages.

PS: on this subject, can I highly recommend Tabman's article over at the Liberal Review blog. Oh, and internet telly station 18 Doughty Street have produced this tongue-in-cheek video here.

the legacy: a comedy of terrors
The breathtaking new novel that has the whole of the Conservative Party chattering!
The tale chronicles the progression of unbridled governance, its demise and inevitable descent into hubris.
The work’s title, subject matter and its reasonance with the public are obvious, but it is absolutely bulging with handy quotables and chic wisdom as well.
