Lib dem ministers to take an additional six days off from government duties before May

I see that all Lib Dem ministers have been told to set aside 6 full days for campaigning between now and 5th May in “key areas”. Former party operative-turned civil servant-turned party operative, Tim Snowball, is co-ordinating from Cowley Street.

Ministers will be expected to visit 2-3 local parties on each of their days off. Norman Baker, Andrew Stunnell and Hilary Stephenson are also co-ordinating. Apparently Lib Dem members feel disorientated from the implications of being in government and “need motivating.”

I don’t know if they’ll have that much work. I’ve heard some councillors turning on the MPs. In north Norfolk some councillors have asked MP Norman Lamb not to canvass with them because of his work with the coalition.

“Disoriented” lovely euphamism for totally depressed there.

wouldn’t matter if they had taken sixty days off for campaigning they stand a Tim Snowballs in hell chance of
convincing the British people to believe in and vote for them ever again.

I just hope none of them try and come near to my ward. In the same way as Bob Marshal-Andrews said he wanted Blair to stay away from his constituency in 2005, I want NO Lib Dem ministers in my ward.
