Are The Lib Dems In Danger Of Over Playing Their Hand
The hung parliament story, broadcast loudly by the left wing media as a sort of last resort of keeping Labour in power and by the rest as the polls are a story in themselves.
As many political commentators are endlessly saying the Leaders Debates have upset the polls, and no one really understands what the polls really mean, and how they will translate into votes on May 6th.
There is an old saying that you should never believe your publicity and Nick Clegg is starting to behave in way that shows the polls are going to his head by saying that his price for a Lib-Lab pact would be the head of Gordon Brown.
On the face of it, nothing wrong with that; Aardvark would like Gordon Brown’s head on a spike at Traitors Gate.
However when you dig deeper what you have in effect, is the Leader of one Political Party trying to say who will not be the Leader of another political party, understandably those who support Labour are none to impressed with Clegg.
Labour’s twitter Czar:
@Kerry4MP: It’s rather gone to Clegg’s head, hasn’t it? Who the hell is he to tell us who our party leader should be? << 100% agree!
@Kerry4MP So true, two weeks ago no-one knew who he was, now he thinks it’s his job to chose who leads OUR party, who does he think he is?
@kerry4mp apparently under the Labour party’s rules if Brown goes then Harman automatically becomes leader unless she quits as DL not likely
Obviously the Labour mob are not happy, but the question is how will undecided voters see it?
Sensible or arrogant?
But then the spectre of a Harman/Clegg regime raises it’s pointed head, that could actually just be worse than Gordon Brown.
