The Nick Clegg Phenomenon
What is going on? My last post is now blown out the water. I have no idea what the latest polls will mean to the results. I do know that this could be a defining moment for our electoral system. To have the 3 main parties vying for first place, within a few points of each other and yet having such ridiculous disparities in the seats allocated is going to really show what sort of failed attempt at a democracy we have. The best news is the Tories back in the low thirties. The Mail on Sunday poll showing the Lib Dems in the lead is truly extraordinary. The Tories wish for change. We might actually get real change if people turn their backs on both the Tories and Labour. Incredible.
Lets just hope the Lib Dems can open up a big lead and lets see the Tories and their press friends try to spin that as a success for plastic Cameron. He has come across as a typical posh Tory because that is precisely what he is. Brown is what he is, and everyone knows what I think of him. Go Nicky!
