We all knew the LibDems weren't gentlemen

Over at Political Betting, a LibDem who claims to be "a senior member of the party" and who calls himself "The Observer", has welched on a bet with Mike Smithson.
I hope that you “The Observer” understand the seriousness of welching on bets. I entered into this arrangement in good faith and would have paid if Huhne had not achieved the required share of the vote. I expect “The Observer”, however senior he is in the party, to do the same. I look forward to hearing from him.

Well, well, well: the name FibDems is beginning to look more and more appropriate, eh?

Still... welching on a bet: jolly bad business.

A gentleman's word is his bond, eh, old boy?

Um, isn't Mike also a Lib Dem? Someone claiming to be a senior LD but posting anonymously compared to an actual open Lib Dem posting openly.

Hmm, I think we know who the gentleman is there, and might we possibly have found an astroturfer?

BTW, thx for enabling OpenID, very much appreciated.

I think he means "welshing".

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
