The LibDems are in rehearsal for the opening night next Thursday of their special Pantomime season.
Led by Vince Cable the key section of 'Cinderella', with Nick Clegg in the starring role, consists of a fabulous chorus of 'Yes I will!' 'No he won't'. Vince takes the lead in this chorus. The theme passes around the Party with an awkward line 'Maybe I won't vote' with 'maybe he will.'
Some people think this amusing chorus goes on too long and let's down the Panto. Cinderella battles with the Ugly sisters, played joyfully by David Cameron and George Osborne as guests.
Free tickets for the opening show have been delivered to the National Union of Students who have sent them back. 'We're not in charge round here; try the Schools in Action Group'.
The school kids have called for a boycott of the show, demanding that Cinderella should be strung up by a telephone cable.
So this festive season looks as if it is going to be spoilt by The Anti-Panto Brigade. And they are in long trousers yet!
