Either Jo Swinson is really stupid or she thinks we are.
That can be the only explanation for her latest foray onto Twitter.
In it, she tries to take credit for the alliance of opposition parties that came together to fight Dictator Johnson’s “no deal” Brexit plan, earlier this week.
And she tries to say the Liberal Democrats will take the lead in further developments:
Today I’ve met with MPs from all parties who want to stop both a disastrous No Deal and an anti-democratic shut-down of Parliament. We will keep working together to prevent it. And then, the @LibDems will continue to lead the fight to stop Brexit altogether. pic.twitter.com/5HKis0go6Z

What a liar!
And this time she doesn’t need me to call her out on it:
You grudgingly met with the MP's. Your dithering is what has enabled Boris to do what he's doing, suspending parliament to suit his own agenda. 😡🤬🤦♀️

You are unbelievable. You had to be dragged there kicking and screaming.
Just this one post shows just how duplicitous you are

The vilification goes on and on.
Now, perhaps you may think it unwise to point out this woman’s shortcomings in this way, especially as she is the leader of one of the main UK political parties (albeit with few representatives in Parliament at the moment).
She may decide to spit in all our faces and support Dictator Johnson’s “no deal” Brexit in response.
But that would only show her up as even more of a fool than she has made herself here.
Her reluctance to support Jeremy Corbyn’s attempts to stop “no deal” Brexit have already caused severe unrest among her party’s support base, much of which only voted Liberal Democrat as a protest against leaving the European Union.
If she doesn’t get behind him, now that Dictator Johnson has enacted his plan to halt Parliamentary democracy and deny MPs the chance to stop his disastrous Brexit, they will abandon her in their thousands.
It could mean the end of the Liberal Democrats as a Westminster political party.
So it will be interesting to see how she answers this question:
In the face of the Prorogation of Parliament, will you NOW support a VoNC and bring an end to this Government?
It's a simple question, do you have the courage to answer?

You can see when this was tweeted. There has been no response by the time I’m writing this.
Maybe that’s her answer.
Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
