Clegg's moment of realisation

"Cannae dae that any mare, there's nae money."

So says Lib Dem leader (for how much longer?) Nick Clegg. According to Clegg, an extension of free childcare, rolling out free personal care for the elderly across England, a citizen's pension and cutting tuition fees are all too expensive while there is a recession on.

Is it just me, or does that beg the question as to what the Lib Dems are actually for? I mean, before Clegg's realisation (apparently a year after Vince Cable predicted it) that we're too skint to do anything, I probably couldn't have told you many Lib Dem policies, but I could have told you that they were for cutting tuition fees and... erm... um... yes, changing the electoral system to PR. But now what do they stand for? I can see their new slogan now:

"Vote for us 'coz we're, um... not as red as Labour. And not as blue as the Tories. And we're more yellow than the Nats!"

Maybe Howard (Russell, not Michael) was right...

(Incidentally, I meant to write this last week when I first realised Nick Clegg had just realised there was a recession on - looks like my timing is just as off as his).

He's just realised what the rest of us knew all along, he was living in cloud cuckoo land.
