  • I was at Nick’s Q&A today. While I found some of his answers to the trickier questions put to him wanting and sometimes not germane, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that, after hearing him in a fringe meeting and at the Q&A, that I’m not a little reassured by us being in coalition. It’s been interesting taking the temperature of the party and it is obvious that many of us are not sure about all this, but Nick gave a spirited and convincing defence, and was general quite sensitive to those of us not as enthused by the coalition as he is. I feel a little more confident that we aren’t’ just being swept away by power, and our purpose in this coalition is more defensible than I thought.
    So, while I am not as distrubed by all this, I feel very comfortable about “holding Nick’s feet to the fire” as one member suggested.
