Arthurian Legend

"Once back here I got to thinking - 'how do I get out of this?' Perhaps the really haunting spectre is that I would have to turn my back on the lake, and the prospect of the sword." Alan Clark, Diaries - 19th May 1999

Life on Fraggle Rock (or, in the mind of a Lib Dem)

Simon Hughes
"The Labour
Party has betrayed, sadly, what I thought were its libertarian principles"
Simon Hughes, Question Time, BBC1, Thursday 8th February 2007

Seriously. What planet is this guy on?
The Labour Party? Libertarian principles? WTF?

Next he'll be muttering, "With the recent gassing of all those Jews, Adolph Hitler has regrettably undermined his previously good reputation for encouraging a tolerant and multi-ethnic society".

Most amusing!

Croydonian said...

Libertarian defined: "One who advocates maximizing individual rights and minimizing the role of the state; One who believes in free will".

Does not sound much like the Labour Party, does it?

I can see the similarity.
I wonder what LibDems are doing about the proposed amendments to the Freedom of Information Act is they want to preserve libertarian principles.
