Osborne's advice on tax avoidance

I suppose with his trust funds and everything he's a bit of an expert!

John from Woking on Call Clegg

I suppose its time to out myself. I am John from Woking who called in to the Nick Ferrari show on LBC yesterday. When I heard that Clegg would be on this new programme I immediately sent in my question and was lucky enough to be chosen. I assume it was because they knew it might be controversial. I must admit I was not prepared for how viral it all went. The phone never stopped ringing and I was interviewed by the Mail, Standard, Mirror, ITN and a few others that are a blur. I have had my Warhol moment.

Any way there you have it I am John Doran the County Councillor for Horsell, Woking between 2005 and 2009. I joined the Liberal Party in the run up to the 1974 elections during Thorpe-mania. And I am so very angry about what has happened to my party under Clegg.

I know this blog has had more come backs than Frank Sinatra but while preparing myself for Call Clegg, I started realising, noting and researching all the things that this government is doing that scare the pants of any self-respecting Lib Dem, so I will be blogging about that stuff in the next few weeks.

 Finally a word for my old colleagues in the Lib Dems. I apologise for any embarrassment I may have caused you. Many of you feel similarly but perhaps not as strongly as I do. I tried hard to follow your advice and fight the good fight from within, but it became impossible. I wish you all the best in future elections. You do not deserve the millstone of the coalition weighing you down.
