Liam Fox ought to have read the Spectator

I was a little gobsmacked when the audience on Question Time turned on Liam Fox for his threat that a hung parliament would bring on the end of the world and we had to vote Tory. They booed and hissed him. Janet Street Porter also dished the argument by declaring that politicians ought to grow up and learn to share properly!

I think the Tories are going to have to think carefully before trying to frighten the voters to back them. Maybe if Fox had taken time to read this article in the Spectator he may not have come so unstruck.
Thanks to Simon Shaw for tipping me off about the Spectator article and LIb Dem Voice for the FT link

Post a Comment

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
