Clegg's hung like a donkey

Surprise, surprise, ole bed troubler Cleggover WILL join Labour's love-in if this dying government wears a noose come May.

Despite the little lefties not Labour's biggest fans most days, the chance to achieve their dream of power, real power, seems too good an opportunity to miss as they camp out again at Gordon's.

But by backing Brown for a hung parliament, they are simply leaving their policies at the door of No.10.

Clegg really is possibly the most indecisive leader of the liberal (little L because they are not worthy of a cap) demoprats of all time. TTG wonders how he manages to even choose what to have for breakfast each morning-he just dilly dallies about, dithering (maybe there is something in common with him and his Brown chum after all), and backtracks on policies, littering speeches with soundbites that may have worked with a heavyweight Commoner but not with mousey Clegg, a second-rate, poor man's Cameron.

Voters may moan about the Tories but at least they have someone and KNOW someone to whom to direct their ire. Can't say the same with the liberals. Name their front bench ... got a handful yet? TTG has got 3, maybe 4 and that's pushing it.

How do they expect the great depressed Britons to know? You could always rely on the one policy party to sprout crap about PR. We knew what they stood for, even it was just the one thing. But it seems with their stable 17 per cent, the Lib Dums are prepared to support the government of the day, provided of course it's Labour ... they may stretch to the Tories though - political opportunism doesn't rule that out. Perhaps Mr Invisible thinks he will finally be known in the public eye - fame by association?

While TTG should probably open up her arms to Clegg for his support should we be hung, TTG would rather strip off to her undies in Parliament Square. Our party is one of hope. We're not settling for a hung parliament - we are working towards becoming the next Government.

Vince Cable is their trump card but while TTG is sure he is a very nice man, he too can't seem to make his mind up about the economy but him and Nick can't resist a sneak dig at our plans.
Do we really want to pick up these boy-wonders from their so-called talent pool to sit with us at our table, making policy?
We already have the best in the business on our bench - why pick Almunia when you can have Fabregas?

TTG's point is that we will never surrender our policies, our beliefs and politics just for a seat in power.

Like their logo, their policies have flit, fluttered away as have their credibility as Clegg limpets on to Brown. They may have moved off the bench but they've flown right into the Labour nest.

The worrying thing is that so many, sick of Labour yet even sicker of the Tories deem the liberals as an option but it really is a wasted vote.

You're voting for a hung parliament and you're voting for another five years of Labour assisted by the policy-defunct, liberal cheerleaders prepared to support ANYONE for a shot to sit in the hot seat. We simply can't let this happen.

The choice is clear. If you want Labour in, vote Labour. If you want Labour in, vote Liberal Democrats. If you want Labour in, don't vote. End this cycle by voting Conservative.

Your point is good. But you can't expect the little ones to pass up an opportunity to sit at the big table.
