Marching orders

I AM never surprised by the ­hypocrisy of Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats. We have ­become accustomed to this.

The latest example is Nick Clegg’s suggestion that a government made up of smaller parties who are prepared to work together in government and who represent more than 50 per cent of voters, would not have legitimacy. This is hypocrisy and an affront to democracy, from a party which has always claimed support for proportional representation, the main advantage of which is to allow smaller parties to participate in government.

We have the opportunity at this election to get rid of this hypocritical party, let’s do it.
