Nick Clegg is reported to have said that if there is yet another hung parliament as a result of the 2015 election, he would be open to forming a coalition with the Labour Party. Setting to one side the question of whether there would be sufficient Liberal Democrat MPs* to even make the question of a coalition possible, what I find interesting is this quote:
“If the British people said that was the only combination which could work would be those two parties…….”
This can only be taken to mean that the British people would be given the opportunity of agreeing to another coalition government by means of a referendum, or similar (or has Clegg once again failed to synchronize brain and voice box).
Where coalitions and the present relationship twixt Cameron and Clegg are concerned, there appears to be a rather telling expression on Clegg’s face in the picture that has been used – but I digress……
Anyway, methinks that Master Clegg is getting a little too big for his boots and that he is counting his chickens before they have hatched. In any case, where current opinion polls are concerned, Clegg might not be an MP and it might then be necessary to ‘commission’ a post for him in
*Afterthought: the way things are going Clegg might not be the only party leader who only just scrapes into double figures where the number of seats obtained is concerned – eh, Mr. Cameron?
