Reports of the president’s assasination have been greatly exagerated. Not dead just gone into hiding. Why? we are told on Lib Dem Voice today its because “…the existence of my blog seems to have led some people into thinking that it is possible to keep up a running commentary on what is going on” .
Well hell yes! We need a running comentary on what is going on. Now more than ever. The reasons why have been lain before our eyes over the last couple of weeks. And the idea that by closing down her blog she will somehow stop the “running commentary” is just nonsense.
So now we are promised that “In future, minutes of FE will be published here on LDV, within the one month required by the Standing Orders”. Batten down the hatches lads the natives are restless.
Ps. Ros Scott has now admitted herself that the FE has only limited powers. That may be true. And that may be the most powerful argument we have heard so far for sorting out the Party organisation. BUT what about powers it does have ? Surely it has some powers over employees of the party? And if so why were they not used? Sadly it looks like we will never know.
