|Do you think Nick Clegg has read The Wizard of Oz?

Launching the Liberal manifesto today, Nick Clegg promised to 'add heart to a Conservative government and a brain to a Labour one'.
Which makes him the little old man hiding behind a screen, pretending to be a powerful wizard, doesn't it?
He certainly doesn't seem to comprehend that his party is going to implode on the 7th May!
Oh, I think he does. But he isn't allowed to say so.
Jinx! Exactly the same thought went through my head!
(Also, my worry about a prospective Labour government certainly isn't that it won't be right-wing enough.)

It's not even coincidence, is it? The same thing must have struck anyone who actually knew what he was talking about. Pity that excludes Nick *and* his speechwriters, but there you go.
(Also, well, quite!)
Either that or the cowardly lion :-)
But the Cowardly Lion is one of the good guys...
That is very true. Maybe Vince Cable is the cowardly lion (he's the only one I believe on Lib Dem attempts to mitigate the Tories).
There was a brief moment when Vince Cable was acting leader of the party, and saying all the things a liberal ought to be saying: I assumed at the time he was demob happy. But that was before the entire party blotted its copybook so very comprehensively...
