Sholto Byrnes on the Lib Dems

An e-mail arrives from The First Post, suggesting I read their article on the Liberal Democrat Conference. As the article is by Sholto Byrnes, who has occasionally reported the thoughts of Lord Bonkers in the Evening Standard and Independent diaries, I was happy to do so.

Sholto writes:
Far from being a time for the Liberal Democrats to congratulate themselves, this is a moment when the party must ask itself the question to which it has never given a satisfactory answer: what on earth does it stand for?
Fair comment. You can read the full article here.

Come on, Mr Calder!

I thought the idea was you directed our attention to something that was fresh or illuminating, something that demonstrated some kind of insight.

You just made me waste my time reading a fragment so vapid and shallow that it could only have come from a 13-year-old smuggins ecstatic at his first school debating society or a hack responsible for barfing out the snobbery and gossip bucket of the Standard (and who clearly besmirches the name of Sholto).

The good Lord B would not approve!
