    Honestly? Not really, It generally just confirms ideas you might have about the Tingers and what they stand for. It will probably be good value in the future for pointing out hypocrisy but I don’t subscribe to gotcha culture anyway - it’s clear what they want, it’s what you always thought, and nobody worth arguing with takes them seriously enough for direct examples to be worth citing.

    I did find his bitter comments about the perception of centrism a bit funny.

    Vince Cable standing down as Libdem leader could well be Tinge related? A step in the new formation?

    In what way could it be 'Tinge related', do you think?

    He’s stepping down in May. His birthday is in May. He’ll be 76.

    I think that’s all it is.

    A reconfiguration between the LDs and Tinge. Cable has been talking about it for weeks

    You may scoff, but these unpopulists have got stickability...in for the long haul...after 24 days they're posting a Press Release saying they "...will not give up." :D

    OK, I hadn't been aware of that, TBH

    Apparently, the LibDems
    So I don't think Cable's retirement necessarily has anything to do with Chuka's mob

    Not sure where that quote comes from but "both the Lib Dems and Tig have dismissed talk of any kind of merger" may be technically true but it isnt the whole picture
    There has been endless talk about 'arrangements' between the two groups in the press, often coming from Cable himself
    Vince Cable: I’ll build a new home for Labour rebels

    Last time i looked the impression was definitely agreement about an informal arrangement so they wouldnt stand against each other, and that regular meetings were taking place about a common strategy. From Cables mouth below:
    TINGE want to form a 'party' by the autumn (conference season?) and Lib Dems are now going through another moment of change - a new leader will have the choice whether to align more closely with TINGE or not. Cable was broadly supportive - it will be mildly interesting to see what the new leader does about it, if anything. Logic dictates they should form an alliance, but who knows.

    I don’t like to mock people’s appearance but I didn’t realise Nick Parks and Aardman had resurrected Spitting Image.

    I notice they are looking for press officers on a three month contract. Do they perhaps sense that they aren't going to last very long?
