On day UKUncut protestors targeted Clegg family home, Tory MP Louise Mensch urges people to donate £5 to Lib Dem funds

Louise Mensch, the Tory MP for Corby is recommending that her followers donate £5 to the Liberal Democrats for today only.

She thinks it will show solidarity with the Cleggs who have been targeted by UNuncut protestors today. Hundreds gathered outside the Putney home of the Lib Dem leader, some chained themselves to railings and they held a noisy but apparently peaceful street party. No arrests were made but a large contingent of police officers had to be deployed. The Cleggs have young children and it can't have been pleasant for them (if they were at home) or for local families.

Louise is appalled and as gesture of solidarity with Nick Clegg and as a poke-in-the-eye for UK Uncut she suggested we all donate £5 to Lib Dem campaign funds.

I tweeted that if Louise wants to do something she should send a card and flowers to Mr and Mrs Clegg. I don't want my money going to finance Lib Dem leaflets so that the party can try and hold on to seats like Eastleigh, Torbay and Bath. Mark Wallace agrees:

I'll let Louise have the final word:
