Perhaps it's silly from a shadow minister to be using such loose language, but it also makes the Lib Dems look silly by taking it seriously. They could have just said, "Well that's nonsense, we don't care."

I'm not really biased towards any party in the UK, but I don't think it's at all silly to call out invocations of comparisons of British parties to regressive, violent regimes. It's nasty politics, and it should come back to slap Thornberry on the arse.
