She also voted regularly to increase the rate of VAT, while also voted against increasing the tax rate on people earning more than £150,000. That's surely a lot worse that all the squirrels she killed.

There is all the same an undoubted problem with anti-scuriolism within the Lib-Dem party (evidenced quite obviously by their leader's bare-faced denial).

We would be hearing a lot more about it if the Lib Dems posed any kind of threat to conservative aka capitalist values.

Whereas scurrilism is rife... But it is ok to be anti-scuriolism - if the squirrels in question are immigrant grey squirrels who are taking over the country as opposed to native red squirrels who are the Best of British!...

The red squirrel is under threat of extinction across Britain. Their supporters believe the only way to save them is to exterminate their enemy: the greys. But are they just prejudiced against non-native species?

This is what anti-scuriolism leads to. We never learn.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson forced to deny shooting stones at squirrels after spoof story goes viral | The Independent
"I do think it's worrying because it echoes what we've seen in other elections and particularly when you think about fake news and the technological possibility for deepfakes where videos can be faked, then there are questions about the role of publishers in circulating these things that aren't true.

Unprompted talking about DeepFakes....
