More instances of the LibDems going completely cuckoo has emerged. Foreign Office minister Tony Inchpractice has been recorded mistaking the Tories' European allies as members of 80s Ska ensemble Madness, calling them "nutty" and "an embarrassment".
He went on to criticise their baggy trousers, and insisted "My name is Michael Caine" before being replaced at the microphone by Vince Cable to steady the ship and smooth things over.
[wrote this quickly cos I liked the Madness references in what this minister said. Maybe not the funniest piece ever - feel free to have a crack at improving it.]
