Anyway my final sentence on the comment was this:
I would like to say that I don't think you are deliberately twisting the facts - except it is about the third time I have seen the Lib Dims play this trick.
The final part of the response on the blog was:
And as for your last sentence, when a senior elected politician descends to mere vulgar abuse, all it does is diminish you and your credibility.
I'll leave it up to you whether I am guilty of vulgar abuse or whether a Lib Dem is spinning what was a legitimate challenge.
