The problem for Labour and the Tories in attacking Lib Dem policies…

From today’s YouGov poll in the Sunday Times (one of the questions which I don’t think was reported in the paper, though I’ve not seen a hard copy):

The other parties have been targeting Liberal Democrat policies in recent days. What is your view of this?

It shows the parties are doing their job – the Liberal Democrats need to be scrutinised: 34%
It shows the other parties are rattled: 53%

This one also looks to have been unreported:

Newspapers have questioned Nick Clegg’s personal financial dealings. What is your view on the basis of what you know about this?

He has serious questions to answer: 25%
It is an attempt to smear him because he has been doing well: 53%

    …Rather nice summing up of the past week on Conservative.Home, picked up in the Sunday Times:

    “It has a feeling of 1906. The Liberals are winning, and not a plane in the sky.”

    Hope they are right. Didnt we land a majority of 400? can’t quite remember myself, must be the Alz.

    I liked this from Peter Hennessy on this morning’s Andrew Marr Show: ” [the press] have always been patronising to the Lib Dems. Always a whiff of Arran sweater or a whiff of nut cutlet. Now there’s a whiff of grapeshot. It’s glorious! No Liberal has go up their nose so much since Lloyd George.

    The comparison made by Peter Hennessey on the Andrew Marr Show was indeed epoch making to speak in glowing terms that it has not been since Lloyd-George that a Liberal Leader has so got up the nostrils of the Tories and Labour Party..

    It is the task of Liberal Democrats now to better represent the 4 million least off families, to implement in Government,the pledged cut in tax on first £10 K earnings, to really emulate Lloyd-George.
