"We can't blame the Lib Dems anymore"
Angela Douglas is one of the ten members of the all-Labour cabinet in Gateshead. She has spent the last five years sneering at the Lib Dems in government. On Tuesday, on the cabinet agenda, up pops something the all-Conservative government is pushing. Angela didn't like it. And she liked even less the fact that the finger of blame could not be pointed at the Lib Dems. "We can't blame the Lib Dems any more," she moaned. How true, though frankly, I wish we were still there, pushing the liberal agenda in government and blocking the excesses of the other parties.
