Who Said Liberals Were Fick ?

The BBC surprises with a pro-American article, highlighting just how generous were the terms of US support in WWII. But never underestimate the ability of a Liberal to find something stupid to say:
Anne Moffat, the MP for East Lothian, asked the parliamentary question that revealed the end of the WWII loan after being pressed by an interested constituent. She is a little surprised that we are still paying the Americans off all these years later.

"It is certainly bad that no-one seems to have known about it. It seems to be a dark, well-kept secret."
That’s the Liberal’s definition of a dark, well-kept secret: anything you’d have to crack open a book to know.
