What is it with some LibDem MPs?

Today David Ward, here giving a car crash interview on Sky following his comments from earlier today

David Ward's political career should be toast, but will Nick Clegg have the cajones to take action?

Yesterday a previous LibDem Baroness Jenny Tonge, attacking Zionism

"It will not go on forever, it will not go on forever and Israel will lose its support, then they will reap what they have sown,"

The Liberal Democrats, the true nasty party.

You say you are not a sheep, yet you follow the New Conformity to the letter.
David Ward was not attacking Israel's right to exist, he was giving his opinion its policies.
Simply, of all the peoples in the world, surely Israel, after the terrible events of the Holocaust, should respect the basic human rights of others.
By curbing his freedom of speech, what makes you any better than any facist regime past or present?

I'm pro Israel, but I still believe they should be accountable for their actions.

His views on Israel's policies are simply wrong and downright insulting.

I have no problem with people criticising Israel, wrong though they may be. So long as, of course, they listen to facts that prove them wrong.

But David Ward didn't say Israel, he said Jews, again and again. To make statements like that on Holocaust Memorial Day is beyond insensitive, it is insulting and worthy of censure.

I am not curbing David Ward's freedom of speech, he can say what he wants to BUT as an MP he has a duty to speak more carefully.

Your calling me a fascist shows the inadequacy of your argument. Calling someone a 'facist' exposes the inadequacy of your argument.
