There are a number of Lib Dems who I like, as individuals many Lib Dems are really nice people, but something seems to happen when they come together in numbers.
Like plutonium, they are fairly harmless in small quantities but once they reach critical mass they seem to mutate into an organisation I find quite unpalatable. An example of this is the undue haste with which their London team started to campaign in Bromley and Chislehurst.
Eric’s funeral has not even taken place and yet the Lib Dems have been sending out emails and encouraging their supporters to descend on Eric’s constituency. Ming Campbell has told them off (he seems to be doing that a lot recently) but I feel that a mild rebuke, from a leader on his way out, will make little difference.
