Clegg: my party hate me even more than you do!

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has today conceded that he’s even less popular amongst rank and file Liberal Democrats than he is with the public.

Abandoning the party’s long-standing policy of equidistance was always bound to cause ructions, with Scottish Liberal Democrats like Menzies Campbell and Charles Kennedy favouring a coalition with Labour. But with the Liberal Democrats’ Chief Secretary to the Treasury being the designated hatchet-man, and rumours of the LibDems most popular figure contemplating defection its little wonder that grassroots members are getting “nervous.”

Recent polls show LibDem support playing a game of limbo, posing only one quesiton: “how low can they go?!”
