Libdemologists: Knifing Ming AND Knifing Free Speech?

While the "grown up" Lib Dems in Westminster were knifing dear old Ming the babies in York Hull were trying to smother free speech from lunchtime organisers and youth workers that they were having to let go.

To do this muffling they tried to use a rule intended to stop councillors with snouts adjacent to troughs from feathering their own nests. The Labour Group has stopped this shenanigans.

When Lib Dems tell you they are the nice party and the party of free speech and youth engagement and human rights shout "Et Tu Brute?" followed swiftly by "Alas, poor York, I knew him well" or possibly "Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious by this sun of York".

UPDATE: Hull, York? What's the difference? Well quotes with Hull in are thinner on the ground, let me tell you.

This story would work well.
If it wasn't actually about Hull.
