Vince is 76. Wouldn't be surprising if he'd had enough by now.

In hindsight (of a week or so) I think it might have been a shrewd move. the LDs put in a no confidence motion. Corbyn had a rally asking for a GE, but notably *not* doing anything within his power to bring one about - such as putting in a no confidence motion.
Jo Swinson seems to be making it very clear she is not in the business of forming coalitions. This was the impression I got from her interview on Sky News yesterday morning, and there was an article in the Times today. I'm not entirely certain if this means she is also ruling out future remain alliances but the message seems to be "If you want to stop Brexit join the Lib Dems".
Given that she has just been handed a seat courtesy of Plaid and the Greens, I think she needs to tread a bit more carefully here.
It's framed her as a do-er, and him as a serial whiner and ranter but a man of inaction when it comes to actually doing something about it. Expect this to come back in the future...
Are they doing it all for a joke, do you think?
