Why should we be surprised at the revelations that the late Cyril Smith (literally a big Liberal) indulged in odious practices in (semi-) private life. The accusations made against him are consistent with much more recent allegations against Lord Reynard. (Funny how that matter has decamped from the front pages of mainstream papers!)
Now (top) and then (bottom)
Nick Clegg’s manoeuvrings about both issues are now joined by those of David (now Lord) Steel as he tries to distance himself from the shady antics of his now deceased political party associate. Another of Steel’s old Commons chums, David (now ~ inevitably ~ Lord) Alton seems to have ‘blown the gaff’ so to speak with his claim that Steel had made ‘a facetious remark’ that the accusations about Smith were ‘no different’ from what went on in public schools all over the country. HMMmm! This does have the ring of truth about it!
What I find so obnoxious about Liberals is their sanctimoniousness combined with their obsessive and excessive love for the EU, together with a refusal to permit the voters of England a referendum on continued membership. They seem to support anyone and anything other than England and the English. Obviously this has nothing to do with the fact of their cursed party being dominated by Scots, just look at the long line of its leaders!
No English man or woman in their right mind should vote for them . . . Lib Dems I mean!
