THE Lib Dems have decided to take a break from politics and try something different, starting with becoming a knitting club.
After ending up with fewer seats than before the election and leader Jo Swinson resigning, party members have collectively realised there are probably better things to do with their time.
Activist Eleanor Shaw said: “We’re useless at politics, so let’s try knitting instead. At least we’ll have something to show for our efforts, like a nice pair of socks.
“A knitting club will mean we can all still meet up and chat, and if we miss the politics bit we can always knock on people’s doors and pester them with knitting patterns.
“The party’s new slogan can be ‘Knit One, Purl One’. And if the knitting doesn’t work out we could become a rambling club, or get really into basket weaving.
“I’m really excited about making my first jumper, because being a Lib Dem won’t feel totally pointless for once and no one will be giving me grief about tuition fees.”
