Lib Dem conferences – Lib Dems in general – are famous for their weirdness. But this one had a particularly loopy tinge.
The coalition which they’ve constructed around the deeply-unattractive figurehead of God Emperor Verhofstadt is doomed to failure.

“Bollocks to Brexit!” they screamed. “Bollocks to Brexit!”

This was less a conference, more a collective breakdown. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, with sandals and vegan salads. For three days, the Liberal (not that they’re liberal) Democrats (not that they’re democrats) tore up Bournemouth – and democracy.

Their headline act was Guy Verhofstadt. Verhofstadt, as readers will know, is a deluded Belgian politician who dreams of Empire and has never visited a dentist.

“Ze World Order of tomorrow” he roared – spittle-flecked, frenetic – to his adoring, glazed acolytes. “Ze World Order of tomorrow is not a World Order based on nation states or countries. It is a World Order based on Empires.”

The sect applauded, cheered, worshipped, praised. The crowd in a fervour; a whirlwind of aggressive Euronationalism and those beige mackintoshes only Liberal Democrats seem to wear. Well, Lib Dems and flashers.

Jo Swinson may be their Leader, but only in name. Verhofstadt is their Real Leader; the rest of the Lib Dem “top team” are merely his apparatchiks; the conference floor, his agents. This is a party which has rebuilt itself around a foreign power. It is an instrument of the EU, a genuine British Political Party only in name.
