Andy McSmith's Lib Dem Conference Diary: 'Do I want to throw myself in the Clyde? Yes, I do'

What makes the Liberal Democrats so lovable is the style with which they make a mess of things. On Monday the unfortunate, no doubt hideously embarrassed press officer who let slip the advice note for MPs explaining how to reply to journalists’ questions about issues such as income tax and the so-called bedroom tax – and accidentally emailed it to a select list of political journalists – did not have to face the music in public. But the senior spinner who was dispatched to the press room to sort out the disaster did so with admirable good humour, remarking at the end: “Do I want to throw myself in the Clyde? Yes, I do.”

No 10's mask slips (luckily David Cameron's Mickey Mouse towel didn't)

Pity poor David Cameron. Deer-stalking in Jura was out because of a bad back. You can't get to the gym or on the bike like you used to. So you're carrying a little extra holiday weight. But, you think, going topless on the beach in Cornwall will be safe because there's an agreement with newspaper editors not to publish paparazzi shots of you on holiday – beyond those staged ones with Samantha at the picnic table. You think the world – beyond the gawpers on Polzeath beach – will never see you changing your swimming trunks under a Mickey Mouse towel.

Last night's viewing: Who Do You Think You Are?, BBC1
Big Bad World, Comedy Central

Gary Lineker's family is fascinating. But not necessarily the ancestors he found with the help of the crack squad of genealogists in the Who Do You Think You Are? team. More interesting is the world of his brother, Wayne. Wayne – the black sheep Lineker – was once sentenced to two and a half years of bird for tax fraud. He also turned up on ITV's The Only Way Is Essex and runs a raft of Lineker's Bars in parts of the Med usually seen in the backdrop of Sky1's Ibiza Uncovered. The guy's a card.
