With this latest hypocrisy centering on the Welfare Reform Bill, Simon Hughes has yet again been caught out saying one thing, but doing another.
Hughes’ weekend assault on the media, in which he called for the abandonment of the government’s proposed benefit cap, led to the claim that the bill would be rejected in both the Commons and the Lords in its current format.
But, a quick glance over Commons voting records reveal that back in June 2011 the influential Lib Dem stood with the Tories wholeheartedly on the bill.
As we’ve asked before: Would the real Simon Hughes please stand up?!
