Remember this when you watch the beatific Clegg tonight, discussing foreign policy.
Baroness Tonge is a Patron of the Palestinian Telegraph, an online "newspaper" which specialises in lies about Israel and vile antisemitism. The current issue of this sewer of a publication features a video of none other than David Duke, neo-Nazi and onetime grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. (Cherie Blair's sister Lauren Booth is also a Patron).
(Click on "PT Channel 3" on the right hand side of the screen and you will see it).
This is the woman of whom Lord Wallace last Sunday said "I would defend her rather over-emotional approach to the rights of the Palestinians". (Wallace is the LibDems' Deputy Leader in the Lords and their most senior foreign policy spokesman in that House and an Emeritus Professor of International Relations at LSE).
If any of tonight's TV Debate live audience is reading this, maybe they could ask Clegg if he agrees that being a Patron of a journal which indulges in the filthiest possible antisemitism is merely "overemotional".
