You would need a stone not to laugh;
Nick Clegg plunged the Coalition into brutal bloodletting last night after delivering a crushing blow to Tory hopes of a majority at the next election. The Deputy Prime Minister announced he was abandoning his pet plans for House of Lords reform after opposition from Conservative backbenchers. And in a tit-for-tat move branded a ‘treachery’ by senior Tories, Mr Clegg said the Lib Dems would now vote against Tory plans to redraw constituency boundaries which are expected to help the Conservatives gain 20 seats at the next election.
David Cameron has said he will press ahead with proposed changes to the House of Commons despite the Lib Dems saying they will vote against them. The prime minister said plans to redraw constituency boundaries would be “put forward” to MPs and he urged all parties to back the “sensible” plans.
When I think Nick Clegg I see Violet Elizabeth Bott.
