Lib Dem MP, Edward Davey made himself and his party look like a bunch of spoilt brats today. I realise that Nick Clegg, the Lib Dems leader is desperate to distract public gaze from his failure to honour his party's promise that the British public would be given a referendum on the new EU Treaty (which is substantially the same as the EU Constitution which led to the promise being made). I've only seen this sort of childishness once before - when Dafydd Wigley led Plaid Cymru out of the Assembly Chamber because Lynne Neagle (her again) wouldn't allow him to intervene on her speech. Only time I ever saw Dafydd make a pillock of himself.
It wouldn't be so bad if Davey and Clegg actually meant it. The position is that the Lib Dems tried to manipulate a vote on whether the UK should remain in the EU, even though there is no demand for such a vote (except from Ukip of course). The idea is that when this totally bizarre proposition was carried (as it would be), these backsliders would claim it as the vote they had reneged on. The whole stunt was pure presentation. It really is no wonder that the public hold politics and politicians in such low esteem. Ed Davey, Nick Clegg were rumbled and they should be ashamed of themselves.
