Kudos to YouGov for coming up with the most outrageously crow-barred poll finding to mark Valentine’s Day – that Lib Dem voters are least likely to think that penis size matters.
The findings are not surprising. After all, we’ve always wanted proportional representation. We’ve always been wary of sudden swings to the left or right. And throughout the Coalition, Lib Dems have argued it’s not the size of our parliamentary party that matters, but what we do with our honourable members. We must now gird our loins, though, for the coming campaign. Our poll ratings may be flaccid, but never underestimate the power of a late, liberal surge. And if the next parliament is well-hung we probably won’t be complaining. [That’s enough single entendres – Ed.]
