You have probably noticed a strange double noise every time you have ventured out in public recently, a sort of high pitched whining with a dull grinding noise underneath. I can now reveal the source of this odd and annoying sound.
1) The high pitched whining is the noise made by tens of thousands of Tory voters saying "Obviously when I voted for cuts I meant they should cut someone else's job / pension / benefits. Not mine."
2) The low pitched grinding is the sound of Libdem voters saying through gritted teeth "Of course we had to take power with the Tories, and that means hard choices. Yes of course I'm still 100% behind Nick Clegg."
The picture shows Libdem leader Nick Clegg holding up a sign that says "I pledge to vote against any increase in fees." When it came to the vote Nick Clegg took one look at the pledge paper he had signed, made it into a small paper aeroplane and threw it in the bin.
