The Real Lib Dem Führer

BY TIM DAWSON “Bollocks to Brexit!” they screamed. “Bollocks to Brexit!” This was less a conference, more a collective breakdown. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, with sandals and vegan salads. For three days, the Liberal (not that they’re liberal) Democrats (not that they’re democrats) tore up Bournemouth – and democracy. Their headline act was Guy Verhofstadt. Verhofstadt, as readers will know, is a deluded … Continue reading The Real Lib Dem Führer

Circumventing Threats

In the post-vote People’s Vote campaign, one such moment was the arrival of EU Supergirl, Madeleina Kay – she personified the whining, out-of-tune position of Continuity Remainers and helped turn Remainers away from the Continuity remain cause. Another was the rise … Continue reading Wooferendum
