Been a long day and I needed a laugh. So I thought I'd have a glass of red and then look at a Lib Dem website. Bound to find something funny there. And sure enough, a snigger was immediately on offer. If you visit mickbates.com you will find the home page reads - 'Mick Bates - Election 2008'. Perhaps he means Eleneor Burnham's bid to replace Lembit as Welsh leader of the Lib Dems - or Nick Clegg's bid to replace Ming ! Or Kirsty's bid to replace Mike German - though I would have expected this to take place later in 2007.
I wonder what will happen now that I have posted this bit of information. Peter Black will probably get his microscope out and find that where I read 2008, it was actually 2007. And that I should apologise for doing something so outrageous as suggest that Mick has cocked up his home page. But I have witnesses. Or perhaps they will just change the date to 2007 and say nothing. I await developments.
