Guess who has egg on his face today?


Yes, it's over very own Comical Matt! Matty Boy warned us a few weeks back not to "write off" the Lib Dems in Glasgow East and that "they'll be working hard towards another great result"

Yesterday's result saw the Lib Dems' candidate fall from third to fourth place (behind the Conservatives) with just 915 votes (3.5% of all votes cast) and a lost deposit.

After four by-election disasters, Labour MPs won't be the only people wondering if a change of leader would improve their fortunes...

what a prat

yes, they were working hard for a great result - they just didn't get one.

as I said when you commented on my blog about this, you seemed to miss the point of my post - the point was that purely looking at the voting figures from last time (and nothing else) it was hard to see why the SNP were such clear favourites to challenge... that was looking only at the numbers, not taking into account anything else, local or national - as I said.

Well if only the LD's had gone with Chris Huhne, like Lynne Featherstone said!

Clegg is a mere boy, who should go back to his short trousers!

Clegg is a tory tosspot. I'd imagine Justin would like him but most Lib dems can't stand the right wing little fuck.

I agree with the last writer.
Clegg is a little son of a bitch, that stole the election from Chris Huhne.
Maybe Lynne should go for it? What do you think to that, Justin? Your best friend, as Leader of the Lib Dems?!!
