++ It's Official : A Hung Parliament ++ UPDATED

Why else would Nick Clegg suddenly need to have his official security detail so dramatically upgraded? In this short clip, which I captured from the BBC News Channel this evening, I counted at least five of them (that's the guys in the dark suits and the left hand lapel badges). Two in front of him and three following behind. They weren't there yesterday.



Anyone seen if Dave has had his security personnel upgraded yet?

These are the kind of indications that give us a clue as to what people in the know are thinking. So ...... presumably Gordon Brown's spooks have fucked off down the pub ;-)

Oh, and don't forget .......


++++UPDATE++++
There were six !
Katabasis was there and he had one of them with him the whole time. Find out why in the comments below ........

He had six. One of them was with me constantly.

BBC news:

"Nick Clegg's rallying speech at Sheffield City Hall was interrupted by a heckler calling him a "liar", reports the BBC's Fiona Trott. The man shouted: "Thousands of people gave you their vote, but you've gone back on proportional representation."

;)

Bloody hell Kata, I had no idea you were so important (or dangerous).

Did you see that banner in the background (in the clip) that says "Clegg u something bastard"?
Took me ages to work out the missing word was gorgeous. Imagine my disapointment after I was willing it to be 'fucking' or some such ;-)

Katabasis said...

Yeah saw that banner too.

I think I disrupted his speech fairly badly.

The LD activists surrounded me and started putting boards in front of my face to stop me being heard, at which point a good samaritan (may I thank you from the bottom of my heart) got stuck in and demanded to know why they were censoring me.

Then another man appeared and placed himself directly in front of me, then kept turning round and being aggressive with me, complaining that I was shouting directly in his ear. I moved three times and each time he did the same thing. He looked quite familiar, then shortly afterwards I realised who he was - didn't think I'd recognise you did you, you twat - step forward Liberal Democrat Sheffield City Councillor Shaffaq Mohammed.

Nice one Kata.
Your a bloody hero ;-)

Katabasis said...

Thanks Gotty - you can just about hear me shouting in the background here.

Liberals - nastier than labour - my experience anyway

G.O.T. said...

Yep, I can hear you Kata, definitely can see Smeggy hesitating a couple of times as you interrupt his flow ;-)

HoP
You're not wrong. Someone (ahem) has been removing LibDem posters around my way, in protest. Made the local news I heard ;-)
