Fort holding

Lobbydog has returned to work today to find all sorts of people stressing that Nick Clegg is definitely not running the country.

I never actually thought he would run things in Cameron’s absence, but the veracity with which the point is now being forced is making me think otherwise.

It’s like a bad whodunit TV show when some-one says “I didn’t murder him,” and the detective replies with raised eyebrow, “no-one said anything about murder.”

Maybe the Tories are scared Clegg will do something stupid while they’re away. Anyway, the rather comical line, of which we’re reminded every 15 minutes on Sky, is that Nick is only “holding the fort”.

If the polls are anything to go by then maybe that’s what they’ll write on his political head stone. Lib Dem Leader Nick Clegg – holding the fort from 2007 to 2010.
