This could be interesting....

You're confusing Paddy Ashdown with Lord Ashcroft.

It was Paddy Ashdown who said it

does he think 10's a bit generous?

My apologies.

Hopefully a local baker will be making one now and driving it over

I was watching that at the time he said it. Captain Pantsdown must be so deluded that he actually believed that he was right and the exit poll was completely wrong. He must live in a bubble - it was obvious that the LibDems were going to get a pasting, they have been completely sidelined.
LibDems traded their soul (and USP) so that a few MPs could feel important for a few years - and this is where it has got them. Clegg should have made tuition fees a matter of principle - if he had been seen to stand up to the Tories then perhaps things would have been different. Actually feel a little sorry for them as they have generally put the country's interests first duriung their spell in coalition.

Has he eaten it yet?

Hats off to Paddy. I hope he is a man of his word!

If I was Paddy Ashdown, I'd be getting someone to make me an edible hat by now.

Probably heavily cake based and held together with that rollable icing.

Maybe, in true LibDem style, he has gone back on his election night promises

I was saddened that no one at the Beeb thought of getting hold of a nacho hat; he could have nibbled a bit and honour would have been satisfied. I thought those people were meant to be amongst the brightest.

I switched on this morning especially to see it him do it, too.
