Mefear Hustings

Thought I'd get there before Guido or someone else does with a Maria Hutchings/Hustings based pun.

Astonishing news this morning that the Tory candidate in Eastleigh is being kept away from the hustings event on BBC Radio 5 Live. they must have made the calculation that allowing her on the air is worse than the fallout from stopping her from going on.

It feels like they are effectively throwing the towel in.

I suspect there will be a serious post-mortem if they end up losing this vital by-election and how they chose their candidate should be top of the list.

Shouldn't you be covering Lord Sex Pest.

Are there any normal people in the Lib Dems - they all seem to be either sexually incontinent or just plain weird.

Champagne Charlie looks relatively normal - just the bog standard alcoholic.

Reading that Jo Swinson has helped cover up the allegations along with Nick the Euroslave

So even the normal appearing ones are involved.

As Mark Oaten would say "This is shit!!"
