Edging Labour by just a singe point in Lord Ashcroft’s constituency polling from January, government minister and serial fibber Simon Hughes seems to have hit upon a novel way to maximise the political utility of old campaign signs — painting over the bit which mentions the Lib Dems! Spot the Difference! Before, "Simon Hughes & the Liberal Democrats". […]
The National Union of Students are to erect billboards and send ad vans to Nick Clegg’s constituency — targeting the deputy prime minister amongst other MPs who they claim “traded lies for power” over tuition fees.
With a dangerously tight election battle raging in his seat of Sheffield Hallam, Nick Clegg has demonstrated his utter contempt for voters in the most student populated area of the constituency — by sending a 22 year-old wannabe councillor to represent him at a hustings on Sunday.

The business secretary used a series of bizarre excuses and sent misleading information to the standards tsar while attempting to shirk responsibility for his failure to declare a […]
Vince Cable and a parliamentary aide have been ordered to apologise by the Standards Commissioner — after Political Scrapbook wrote to the watchdog highlighting their failure to declare a whopping £12,000 in private polling conducted in their constituencies by a rich friend. The polling in Twickenham and the Wells constituency of Cable’s PPS Tessa Munt formed the cornerstone of […]
