They think they are so clever

The attitude of some MPs (surprisingly more on the opposition benches than on those of the Conservatives, among whom one would have expected more triumphalism) towards the Liberal Democrats resembles that of the school bully. Angela Eagle's sneer at Business Questions today reminded me of a sentiment engraved on the tomb of the glorious Black Prince. Translated from the Norman French it admonishes the passer-by:

Such as thou art, sometime was I,

Such as I am, such shalt thou be.

Liberal Democrats will rise again as in the 1990s and as Liberals did in the 1960s. A riven and rudderless Labour may be expected to suffer further losses before it finds its way again.
