Iain Dale’s statement that he would run naked through Whitehall should the Election exit polls be accurate is well-known. I reminded Iain about it here.
‘The predictions were incredible, – LibDems to win only 59 seats - so incredible that Mr Dale, the guru of political blogging, said,
“I'll run naked down Whitehall if that turns out to be true.” ‘
Matthew Parris in today’s Times tells the story where he thought he might have to eat a coffee mug: he predicted on election night that there wouldn’t be a coalition between Labour and Lib-Dems. Later he became very worried but he was prepared to go through with it – or so he says.
Parris says to Dale,
“So there we are, Iain Dale: I was ready to go through with it. Are you?”
Well, Iain, are you?
Iain, do you have the balls of a man or of a mouse?
