image of a stinkTHE Liberal Democrats don’t usually make gutsy calls but fair play to Chief Treasury Secretary Danny Alexander who did exactly that this week – by letting out a massive fart just before a TV interview.

Alexander let one rip before he was grilled at Millbank Studios, near Parliament, according to broadcasting insiders. A spokesman for the pooey politician said yesterday: “This story is a lot of hot air.” Oh you monkey Danny.

Still, ‘better out than in’ as they say, which also applies to the Lib Dems.
