Do you think Nick Clegg has read The Wizard of Oz? [Apr. 15th, 2015|06:20 pm]

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!)

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...
