Greg Stone, the LibDem Candidate for Newcastle East is in a bit more trouble today. He is a regular poster on political blogs, including this one, using the pseudonym 'Inamicus' and had been forced to apologise for making rude remarks about a number of politicians, mainly female, on the Guido Fawkes PMQs chatroom. Nick Clegg has virtually disowned him. In his apology he made the point that his comments had been made a year ago.
Sadly for him, further evidence is emerging showing some more recent insults to female politicians, including Chloe Smith. He made an unfortunate remark about her appearance only a matter of weeks ago.
Greg, who has always been partisan but polite on this blog, would do well to draw a line under this episode if he can. UK Polling Report show this seat to be a LibDem target. If this saga drags on, Dominic Llewellyn the Conservative candidate, will fancy his chances of overhauling the LibDems.
