Trust me - I'm a Lib Dem

Vince Cable - pic source

According to the BBC, not-yet-Lib-Dem-leader Vince Cable has :-

...denied acting disloyally after one of his closest allies attempted to get Nick Clegg sacked as Liberal Democrat leader.

Mr Cable said there was "no disloyalty whatever" and he had made clear that the polling carried out in Mr Clegg's constituency and Inverness was "quite wrong".

It isn't entirely clear what Mr Cable means by "quite wrong" here. Presumably it's similar in meaning to "unsuccessful", which in turn means "oh buggery bugger, I've screwed up again but it's a good thing old Oakeshott resigned".

This is turning out to be almost as good as Huhne.

All gone off at half cock? The Libs will surely be wiped out next May, so who but a fool would take over the leadership now and be in the chair when disaster strikes. Much better to wait, leave Clegg to suffer till the smoke clears and then dump him. Who needs enemies with friends like that.

Could the picture be of Harriet Harman in a bad mood?

Sam - yes, if only a spell in clink was on the cards too.

Roger - who but a fool? I agree, but it also feels like a scorched earth policy to me.

Demetrius - or a good mood? Who can tell?

All quite entertaining at the moment.

James - it's real reality TV.
