Our Crack Little Crack

jswinson.jpg Jo Swinson
 

I’ve been watching a lot of Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson on the telly over the past week and I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s something not quite right about her. It’s not the fact that she once wrote an article for a tabloid newspaper under the heading: “We must have a monument to Maggie” (the “must” was underlined). It’s not the fact that she voted with the Tories for £308 billion of austerity cuts. It’s not the fact that she voted with the Tories to spend £100 billion on weapons of mass destruction. It’s not the fact that she voted with the Tories against a fracking ban. It’s not the fact that she voted with the Tories for the Bedroom Tax. It’s not the fact that she voted with the Tories for a rise in tuition fees. It’s not even for the fact that, from 2010 to 2015, she voted with the Tory whip more times than Jeremy Hunt or Michael Gove. It’s the fact that she looks exactly like a character out of Midsomer Murders (someone who you see on screen and immediately think: it’s her! That’s the killer!).
