I always felt that Nick Clegg was never far away from being a closet Torrie, so I'm not surprised at his change of tune. However I do think Vince is a good solid man, maybe he should be their nest leader.
Don't look back; something may be gaining on you.

A Liberal Democrat Defence Minister has claimed he was sacked to avoid a damaging Coalition split over a pre-emptive strike on Iran.
Former Armed Forces Minister Sir Nick Harvey told friends that he was fired in the reshuffle to allow Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to sign Britain up to an Israeli-US preventive strike to take out Iran’s nuclear installations.
Friends of Sir Nick – who was handed a knighthood just days later – say that he could have embarrassed the Lib Dem leader by being too critical of Israel’s actions if he had still been in the key Ministry of Defence post.
The row broke as sources confirmed that British intelligence agents are already deeply involved in attempts to discover Iran’s nuclear secrets.
It is also understood that the US has asked Britain to provide frigates to patrol the Straits of Hormuz, through which much of the world’s oil passes.
The sacking of the respected Minister took MPs and Army top brass by surprise.
Destroy another fetus now, we don't like children anyhow, I've seen the future baby......... It is Murder.
To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic.
The Coalition parties are popular in Winchester. Do you see that changing any time soon?
There is NO chance of Labour getting in here, I made the mistake of voting LD to keep the Tories out, neither worked for we have a Tory MP and the LibDem tarts [they will lift up their skirts to anybody for power] are propping up the lousy Tories.
Coalition parties may be unpopular but not to such an extent to give Labour an overall majority. tbh I'd like to see our political system less focused on the two biggest parties but i'm not sure who would rise to compete with them. Could UKIP get their first seat at the next election?
Out of interest, which British parties/politicians do you like serpentdove?
