[email protected]: James Graham – Reasons for Lib Dems to be cheerful

Over at the Guardian’s Comment Is Free blog, Quaequam Blog!’s James Graham argues that the Lib Dems’ spring conference ‘revealed Nick Clegg’s sense of purpose as he delivered a message of hope amid the economic gloom’. Here’s an extract:

Nick Clegg’s early weakness for attention-grabbing gimmicks has been superceded by a new seriousness of purpose by a leader finally finding his voice. He has been rewarded by a small but perceptible shift in the polls. The talk a few months ago was of a Tory landslide and a Lib Dem wipeout, yet it has become increasingly apparent that Clegg may find himself holding the balance of power after the next general election. That is both a massive opportunity for the party and a massive risk. Fevered speculation about who the party is likely to deal with rarely works in our favour, yet equally if we aren’t in politics to change things then what is the point?
