Headed for Government?


Nick Clegg gave his speech to the Lib Dem conference yesterday and told the gathered masses (or, erm... the Lib Dems):

"I can't tell you every step on the road... but I can tell you where we're headed - government."


Right


Reminicent of David Steel in 1981 when he told conference to "go back to your constituencies and prepare for government."

In 1983, the SDP-Liberal Alliance won a grand total of 23 seats, somewhat short of a workable majority...


In 2008 the Lib Dems have 66 seats. Does anyone think they will win more than that next time round?

I'm quite happy - indeed, eager - to engage in debate with others when the topic provides opportunity to do so. I like knowing who I'm debating with and I'm fed up with some abusive anonymous comments so I've disabled those comments for awhile. If you want to comment, log in - it only takes a minute.
