Shirley, you can’t be serious?

Gordon has only been PM for five minutes and already he’s doing weird things. Like asking Shirley Williams to advise on the issue of nuclear proliferation. This is the same Shirley Williams who was a complete embarrassment on Question Time last week, especially on the question about Salman Rushdie’s knighthood. In short, she depicted herself as a liberal who isn’t prepared to defend the notion of free speech if it upsets a certain faction of Muslims. A pathetic, feeble response, characteristic of the Liberal Democrats who are wetter than a turbot’s water tank. Why would we care what her views are on nuclear proliferation? I think we can probably guess anyway.
