How Fibs deal with Xenophobes
However it did remind Porridge to look out how they act sonsidering it has little bearing on what they say. Hey presto! Ridiculous Politics* comes up with this example of Fib double dealing:
I wonder if Mr Jamie Stone will comment on his fellow Fibs remarks?
At a full meeting of Burnley Council on December 13th 2006 a position on a local regeneration board came up for renewal. When it came to the vote, there was a choice of only two candidates - a BNP Councillor or a Labour Councillor. The casting vote rested with the Lib Dem controlling group and they backed...the BNP councillor!
Indeed in a letter to the local paper the Lib Dem Councillor declared that in his view he backed the 'better candidate'.
Another 'better candidate'?
MANCHESTER - LIB DEM CANDIDATE CLAIMS RACISTS HOUNDED ME OUT MY OWN PARTY
SOUTHWARK - LIB DEM'S SLATED BY DEFECTING COUNCILLOR (accuses ex-colleagues of being racist)
LANCASHIRE - LIB DEM COUNCILLOR SORRY FOR IRISH JOKE (Lib Dem councillor say's sorry for sectarian joke)
MANCHESTER - LIB DEM ACCUSED OF MAKING NAZI SALUTE
