  • This morning I have seen three Liberal Democrat MPs on TV.

    Julian Huppert and Steve Webb speaking at the Conference. Nick Clegg stumbling through an Andrew Marr interview.

    Julian Huppert and Steve Webb come across clearly as bright, articulate Liberals who think and speak in paragraphs. Both are obviously capable and intelligent MPs.
    At the other end of the capability spectrum was someone who had difficulty stumbling through a single sentence.
    Can a party leader have ever missed so many opportunities in a Sunday morning interview?
    Is it any wonder that Clegg has reduced us to 2% in today’s polling for Rochester.
