Rennie must accept Lib Dems £800,000 Police bill Wed, 08/10/2014 Different story when they were calling out for Poll Tax dodgers to pay their debt... The SNP has pressed Willie Rennie to accept the fact that the Lib Dems must pay their debts and sort out the party’s £800,000 unpaid policing bill for last year’s party conference in Glasgow and not default on the bill. Following a debate on policing in the Scottish Parliament, Christine Grahame MSP has challenged Willie Rennie and the Lib Dems to accept that his party owes this money and commit to ensuring it is paid. This follows Danny Alexander today claiming on BBC Daily Politics “I don’t know anything about this” and telling Andrew Neil to ask “conference organisers” about the debt. When asked the same question Willie Rennie said “I don’t know very much about that at all.” These claims from Mr Alexander and Mr Rennie despite the Sunday Herald revealing that both the party and the UK Government have refused to pay £800,000 of polic ...

I don't agree with Nigel on much, but on the subject of Nick not being party leader of the by the next election i cannot agree more. What seemed like a low level rebellion from party members after the European and local elections is now obviously a full scale mutiny. Lord Oakeshott obviously set about getting those damaging polls with Nick Clegg's future in mind and i can't believe he didn't have help from within and i also can't believe Vince Cable is not part of this either. I wouldn't be surprised if Nick Clegg is gone as leader by the end of this week, maybe next and then what? The Lib Dems will then have to quickly choose a leader - maybe Danny Alexander, or Tim Farron, or maybe Vince Cable (although he's damaged goods at this point) and they will limp to the next election hoping to keep a few seats in traditionally strong areas and then be potential power brokers again in an hung parliament. Tony Blair is kind of right in why the Lib Dems have been battered at the polls but i think its simpler than ...

I do not often comment on politics, but who the *** can trust Danny Alexander! The Lib Dems promised much before the last election and fulfilled none of them (more uturns than a road works). The Tories offered them some crumbs and they ate them. The public trusted them once never again I hope. Let us put party politics aside and think what sort of country you want to live in. One governed by a party who did not help with floods in Somerset, Devon etc, until the Thames valley was threatened then money was no object. If they treat their own countrytmen like that ,well enough said. Ask anyone from Northumbria,Durham,Cumbria how they would vote? To all no supporters I say forget Braveheart and think a fair and equal society,which you have a say in

Paddy Ashdown's support for Nick Clegg was based on the defence that he is the best leader we have never realised. And then this evening he was defended by Danny Alexander who was frankly clueless. When challenged about how the leadership can turn things round for the Lib Dems all he could offer was platitudes. Oh why did they choose him? I heard people say. Because this is the man that Nick has promoted into every top position in government and the party that he can. Doesn't that say something about his leadership? And surely Nick must have discussed with Danny about what to do after these results? If so then if Danny can't remember what he said maybe he is clueless as well?

The Chancellor’s contribution this week to the independence debate was dramatic. What does it mean? And where do we go from here? What the Chancellor said was that there will be no currency union between an independent Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom. He said this on the basis of independent, expert and hard-headed analysis — all made public — prepared by HM Treasury and signed off by the Permanent Secretary to the Treasury, no less (the civil servant who is leading the UK Government’s ongoing series of Scotland Analysis papers, about which I’ve written before). The Chancellor’s verdict — that it could not be said to be in the best interests of the rest of the UK to enter into a currency union with an independent Scotland — is not a narrowly partisan position adopted in the interests of the Conservatives. It is, on the contrary, a position with which the Liberal Democrat and Labour parties whole-heartedly agree. For the Lib Dems, Danny Alexander gave a statement agreeing with t ...
Lib Dem Danny Alexander has 'gone native' in the Treasury: Clegg forced to deny his lieutenant has been taken hostage by Tories Tory aide to George Osborne claims Treasury team 'gets on famously' Claims risks alarming Lib Dems who fear Mr Alexander is too right wing Nick Clegg insists Danny Alexander's heart is in the right place By MATT CHORLEY, MAILONLINE POLITICAL EDITOR PUBLISHED: 16:17, 11 February 2014 | UPDATED: 17:18, 11 February 2014 17 shares 39View comments Danny Alexander, the top Liberal Democrat at the Treasury, has ‘gone native’ and now gets on ‘famously well’ with the Tories, an aide to Chancellor George Osborne has claimed.

The Lideral Party/Lib Dems has always done well under the Scottish connection. From the days that Winston Churchill was a Liberal MP for Dundee to Joe Grimmond MP for thr Orkneys. Then there was the despicable Jeremy Thorpe. I think after that there was another Scot, David Steele at the helm. Then there was Paddy ' Pantsdown' Ashdown before Charles Kennedy and Menzies Campbell took over. Nick Clegg will stand down after the next election after seeing the biggest fall in Lib/Dem vote in living history. The ever-expanding Danny Alexander will, hopefully lose his seat. So can I congratulate, In advance Jo Swinson on becoming next Lib/Dem leader

Liberal Democrat peer Lord Rennard has been interviewed by police over claims he sexually harassed female party activists. A Scotland Yard spokesman said a 52-year-old man had voluntarily attended a south London police station by appointment today. The former Lib Dem chief executive's solicitors said in a statement: "We can confirm that Lord Rennard agreed to meet with the police and that he welcomed his first opportunity to refute the basis of allegations made against him. "We do not intend to make any further statement until the conclusion of the police inquiry." Lord Rennard has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. Nick Clegg was criticised in a review of how the complaints were handled Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and two other Lib Dem ministers - Danny Alexander and Jo Swinson - were sharply criticised last week in a review into the party's handling of the complaints made against Lord Rennard when he was chief executive of the party.

I'm looking to compile a definitive list of all the lies, half-truths and smears used by 'Better Together' politicians/officials against Yes Scotland and the independence campaign. Things like Danny Alexander deliberately trying use figures from different years to show Scotland getting more than it deserves. This isn't an official page thing, it's just a wee pet project of mine, which could hopefully prove useful at some point. Any examples/links you can share with me will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Andy
