Cleggy got it right once -- a long time ago -- when he showed Gordon and Dave how to use a microphone and television camera on stage to one's best advantage. In fact, it's about the only thing he's ever done well -- it's all been downhill since then.
The Liberals have usually been the guys with the big ideas but have difficulty selling them to the masses. So theTories do get dragged along into the present minus 20 years or so.. Labour has been unable to break their ties with the Unions - after all they pay their bills.

I expect they will win on Thursday as all the local council members are Libs so it's a hot bed of support. Many will simply not vote knowing the Libs will get in anyway and then leg-over clegged brain will hail it as a great triumph and vote of confidence in them.
Hands up anybody who believes a word the Libs say......they are even more adept at lying than the other parties.
