The former Labour MP for Wavertree, Luciana Berger, today announced that she was joining the Liberal Democrats after a brief stint in the slowly disappearing Independent Group/Change UK/Whatever They’re Called This Week – but she probably should have gone through her personal blog and social media accounts before doing so!

A tweet from former Evolve Senior Editor, Matt Turner, revealed that Berger had previously written that “You can’t trust the Lib Dems” – a headline which was, hilariously, juxtaposed with Berger’s most recent tweet declaring her defection to that very same same party:


Furthermore, Berger does not appear to have gone back through her old tweets either, with a link to an anti-Lib Dem article still proudly declaring that “You can’t trust the Lib Dems, no matter what they say“:

Embarrassingly, another tweet by Berger from 2012 describes the Lib Dems as “Tories in disguise“:

Despite repeatedly voting with the Tories during her time in the coalition Cabinet, it is unlikely that the newly elected Lib Dem leader, Jo Swinson, will take kindly to being called a “Tory in disguise” by one of her colleagues.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
