So who are the Tories new friends?

CHRIS HUHNE
A Lib Dim - Tories should always treat Lib Dims as they did the fat ginger boy who smelt at school - in fact the Lib Dim probably is that boy. So no cuddling up there please.

COLIN CHALLEN MP
A beardie Labourite who believes in an article he claims on his website to have written in the future 28 March 2008 Climate change means that business as usual is dead. It means that economic growth as usual is dead.... Contraction and Convergence... Yep - give up and go back to great days of the 1970s.

ASHOK SINHA
Stop Climate Chaos - if it is a trendy "charity" it is here shouting out dubious "facts" such as "Over 3 billion people in the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent could be facing acute shortages of water" - what is the population of that area? Quite.

TONY JUNIPER
Friends of the Earth - who are really against the current corporate industry driven systems.

DALEEP MUKARJI
Christian Aid - Their disgraceful anti Free Trade adverts - need I say more?

So they are the nuTories - does that make you want to join their party?

Shadow Secretary of State, Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, Liberal Democrats

What's this? The Lib Dems like to ape the titles of HM Opposition as part of their claim to be the opposition. That the Tory would sign this letter and allow the Lib Dem to style himself shadow secretary of state is a sign that general political competence is drifting away from the party, as well as principals.
