LibDem in big trouble - did you catch this story?

Chris Davies MEP has always been a controversial figure in LibDem politics - but he has over-reached himself this time!

The leader of the Liberal Democrats in the European Parliament has had to quit after remarks made to a Jewish constituent. The North West MEP Chris Davies emailed a Jewish constituent referring to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict saying: "I hope you enjoying wallowing in your own filth.''

The problem with Chris Davies MEP is that he is more interested in press coverage than the real and genuine concerns of his constituents. He has been heard to comment that he gets involved with controversial issues for the publicity - well this time Mr Davies it has back fired and not before time!
