I for one hope he is reelected. He is a valuable member of political society...not least because he arouses so much irrational reaction amongst the chattering classes of the soft left on here,

"It seems to me that it's just preposterous, the idea that if a party comes third in terms of the number of votes, it still has the right to carry on squatting in No. 10."

 

That was Nick Clegg in May 2010, just before the last General Election. Talking about Gordon Brown and Labour then, of course.

 

He seems to have changed his tune now, on this as on so many things.

Funny that. It's not the sort of thing politicians normally do.

They all do it, and we are all weary of it, but Clegg and his party claimed to be something quite different in May 2010.

 

How hollow it all sounds now.

I was being sarcastic. Anyway, may it just shows that the leading Lib Dems are as politically " mature" as the rest of the bunch.  Realpolitik?

And thus, they are held in equal if not greater contempt.
