India-born millionaire's arrest shakes up UK politics LONDON: The arrest of an India-born businessman and his son as part of a probe by the UK's Serious Fraud Office (SFO) into allegations of bribery at aerospace and defence major Rolls-Royce has shaken the corridors of power in Britain. Multi-millionaire Sudhir Choudhrie and his son Bhanu, well-known as major political donors to deputy prime minister Nick Clegg's Liberal Democrat party, were arrested and questioned for several hours on Wednesday before being bailed without conditions. A spokesperson for the duo said they "deny all wrongdoing and are cooperating fully with the investigation". Britain's coalition partners Lib Dems are now under the spotlight over their close links with Choudhrie, known to friends as Bunny. He has given the party over 500,000 pounds since 2010 and over 1 million pounds since 2004. The entrepreneur, who moved to the UK in 2002 and is now based at a 5-million pound apartment in London's posh Chelsea neighbourhood, had been on ...
Simon Hughes: The good things come from Lib Dems, not the Tory songbook

A brilliant man. There are quite a few good Lib Dems. Vince Cable and Simon Hughes are others. Shame they are lead by Tory Clegg.
Highlights of conference for me was meeting Tim Farron as meeting Tim was a real confidence boost. Turns out he has four children as well and we spoke about family life and he gave me some really useful tips on managing everything better and what to expect being a MP. We also discussed cockroaches and speaking to the media! Then I had an amazing discussion with Vince Cable and went into depth talking about Smith, Keynes and Hayek (Obviously Vince is a Keynesian) as he refuted Hayek totally. Had a delightful debate with Simon Hughes and Southwark Lib Dems on Land Value Tax over a few drinks and had a fantastic bit of noodles with Graham Neale on the seafront. The Training sessions were absolutely awesome. Some maybe could be run better but in all, I definitely feel that I have walked out a stronger and more confident individual. The best moments for me was meeting members from the Alliance as it was really good to finally put faces to names and great to see how better looking you all are in person ha ha! I ...
Eastleigh and credit rating blow hold twin terrors for the Tories Bouyed by the prospect of success in this week's by-election in Eastleigh, the Lib Dems are on the attack as Nick Clegg savages his coalition partner for lacking fairness. Meanwhile, the Tories, still reeling from Moody's credit rating downgrade while being out-canvassed by Ukip, are showing alarming signs of midterm blues Nick Clegg and his candidate Mike Thornton. Photograph: Matt Cardy/Getty Images The mood was buoyant, the rhetoric soaring. Addressing more than 200 party activists who had poured into Eastleigh on Friday, the Lib Dem Deputy Leader, Simon Hughes, said victory for his party in Thursday's by-election would "suddenly change British politics" and "encourage our troops... ~GeeK3r

The Lib Dems are so twisty they couldn't lie straight in bed, as my mother would say. Simon Hughes on the wealth tax: "Well I agree with Nick and I don't disagree with George Osbourne." The Libs fought so hard for the richest 1% to pay more tax in this country, that next year those same people are getting a reduction in income tax. Cos they need it, bless them

What Lib Dems say about their own party heading to oblivion to quote Lib Dem voice: Ed Shepherd 9th Jul '12 - 11:24pm Back in the nineties and early 2000′s, the LibDem party attracted many votes from people who disliked the Thatcherite policies pursued by the Conservatives and by New Labour. The LibDems had some politicians who had popular appeal, people like Paddy Ashdown, Charles Kennedy and Simon Hughes. The LibDems seemed to promise some policies, like the extra penny on income tax, that promised better public services at small extra cost. This feeling probably reached it’s high point when the official line of the Conservatives and New Labour was to support the ill-advised Iraq War. Since entering government, the LibDems have enthusiastically pursued policies such as tuition fees, abolition of EMA and the Libyan War that have frightened off many of these casual supporters. The current LibDem leader seems rather over-priviliged (even other-wordly) and lacks the appeal of his predecessors. The idea ...
