Nick C Legg - My Fake Diary
Monday, 16 July 2012
In the Mail today: If Nick Clegg had any knowledge of British history, he'd know that Liberals always lose out in coalitions. The complete collapse within two years of Nick Clegg's two most cherished political dreams - changing the way we vote and 'reforming' the House of Lords - should surprise no-one with a knowledge of British political history. But since this subject is one of the many on which Clegg displays profound ignorance (despite his professing expertise in them) the crumbling of his pet projects may have come as something of a nasty shock.
A cursory glance at the history of coalition government in Britain over the last century shows two things: that the junior partners in coalitions lose out, and that those junior partners have always been the forerunners of Mr Clegg's own sorry political sect - the Liberals.
People can be cruel!
