Lib Dems behaving badly

As lifted from a B3ta thread on technical support, this tale coming from a user called Jeccius:


"Had a Data Protection argument a few years back
...with the wife of an account holder. She wanted his details and it was all under his name, so it was a big no no.

"Do you know who my husband is?" says her,
"Yes, the account holder madam" says I trying not to grin too much.
"My husband is the deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats!"
"Congratulations to him madam."
"So I want his password now!"
"I'm sorry madam but as I have already said the law states..."
"MY HUSBAND WRITES THE LAWS!!!"
"...and I'm sure he abides by them too madam" says I without missing a beat.

She didn't get that password. She said stuff like "He's very busy in Parliament, he doesn't have time to speak to the likes of you." Oh that's going to make me want to give you that password luv, you really know how to win the likes of me over.

I generally find that stubbornness to listen is not just with the posh, it's across the board. I've spoken to a few people who put themselves across as upper class and have been able to help them as easily and as pleasantly as possible. I just find that the ones who try to impose this "upper-classness" and believe they are better than others are the ones I really want to **** with a brick.

PS I know classness isn't a word :)


Now a little bit of digging gives us Vince Cable as the deputy leader from 2006 to date, Ming as the deputy leader from 2003-2006 and Alan Beith as dl from 1985 to 2003.  I know nothing of Cable's wife, and Beith is currently married to Diana Maddock, a not especially interesting LD lifer.  The reference to 'upper class' in the post makes one think the finger is pointing in the general direction of Lady Campbell, but readers will draw their own conclusions.
