  • I was at the speech this morning (thanks LDV for the info!) and Nick gave a great speech, including robustly hitting back at some of the distortions of the NO campaign. Anyway, the reason I comment is because there were plenty of journalists there and it was very interesting to overhear them:

    Journo 1 to Jounro 2, before Nick had entered, “Do you think the Lib Dems will be hammered next time?”
    Journo 2, “I do hope so.”

    Hurrah for independent political journalists!
