Grant Shapps in the Portaloo

More on the Tory fallout from the Ealing Southall by-election, this time from the blog of the Daily Mail's Benedict Brogan:
In its jollier moments, the Bullingdon Club - members: D Cameron, G Osborne, B Johnson - liked to lock wayward guests in a Portaloo and roll them down a hill. And today I suspect Mr Cameron would like to do the same or worse to whoever it was who talked him into betting the farm on Ealing Southall. The noises coming from the floors below me here in the Commons suggest the person who thought it was a brilliant idea to put "David Cameron's Conservatives" on the ballot paper is first in the queue. Word is Grant Shapps and Francis Maude were the ones who devised the strategy and sold it to Dave.

Well the Lib Dem HQ in Southall has three portaloos outside it last time I looked, so if they're interest I'm sure a deal could be struck.

Jonathan Calder may be "the Lib Dem blogfather" but I'm the UK's bogfather!
