THE scandal surrounding Lord Rennard could bring an end to the Lib Dems, it was hoped last night.
As Rennard and self-styled deputy prime minister Nick Clegg exchanged warnings, experts said it would be great if it resulted in disaster for the party because Lib Dems are dreadful.
Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: “This scandal is very typically Lib Dem because it involves a lot of unbearable people.
“On the one hand Lord Rennard is exposing the weakness of Nick Clegg’s leadership while on the other hand they should all go away and never, ever come back.”
He added: “Some say ‘be careful what you wish for’, but that doesn’t apply in this case because it’s about the Lib Dems ceasing to exist.”
