Things can only get worse for the LibDems

They could have an even worse leader than Ming, as Hannan notes, in the form of the perfidious Chris Huhne.
So my money is on Huhne, the man who, in 1991, delivered himself of the following observation: “Britain’s belated membership of the ERM has proved to be a greater success than almost anyone expected. We have discovered, 11 years after most of our European partners, that fixed exchange rates make sense”. There you have the authentic voice of the LibDem loser through the ages: self-important, unapologetic and wrong.

Talk about the art of being wrong: the ERM was, in fact, a total disaster for Britain (although made even worse by idiot politicians—who would have thought it, eh?) and NuLabour apparatchiks still delight in referring to Black Wednesday.

Chris Huhne is a fuckwit.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
