Remember that infamous note that Liam Byrne left at the Treasury? “I’m afraid there is no money” basically because the last Labour government pissed it all up the wall.
Well now Danny Alexander has come up with a reply. It’s only taken him 5 years. “Sorry for the late reply. I’ve been busy fixing the economy.” Fair enough so far – but like all politicians looking for a photo opportunity and a bit of publicity, Danny didn’t know when to stop.
He went on “We won’t let you or the Tories screw it up!” which is a bit rich really considering it was Osborne that was fixing it in the first place.
I suspect that it will be little academic for Danny as he holds a Scottish seat that’s about to be wiped out by the SNP but who knows? He might just be one of the survivors…
…unless of course his rather juvenile attempt at a publicity stunt loses him more votes than it gains?
We live in hope.
I even hope that that tablet of stone falls on Milibands head and crushes his chances too – just like that picture of William Hague in a baseball cap at Thorpe Park all those years ago. My four year old granddaughter is more mature than this lot!
