Lib Dem minister urges conference to stop reading Guardian
"Stop reading the Guardian," a Liberal Democrat minister told the conference today.
"It is a carrier of misinformation and lies," said the health minister, Paul Burstow, who was complaining about the paper's recent coverage of the government's health policies.
What ingratitude. The Guardian was the only daily paper to endorse the Lib Dems at the election, after much internal agony on the paper, and decades of backing Labour.
Strange really. And I swear I saw Mr Burstow briefing a Guardian journalist a few hours ago.
