The BBC's Michael Crick has written on his blog today that at his/her party conference, a Liberal Democrat minister told delegates to "stop reading the Guardian" newspaper calling it "a carrier of misinformation and lies."
It's a curious thing for any Liberal Democrat minister to say. Perhaps the Liberal Democract minister should be asked whether the public were misinformed by the Guardian when it endorsed his party in the general election. Indeed, the Guardian was the only newspaper to endorse the Liberal Democrats.
They say a week is a long time in politics. Maybe so. Still, you would think Liberal Democrat ministers remain grateful for endorsements only a few months ago.
