Yes, this is somehow so petty that it falls short of being outrageous. "Liberal Democrats" are strange creatures, aren't they? This spiteful little manoeuvre is arguably democratic, in that it makes it more likely that the will of the majority will prevail. (And nothing wrong with that, apart from the fact that the majority are usually wrong!) But the liberal bit puzzles me. I think they only claimed to be "liberal" as it was a good way of being oppositional and campaigning. Now they have got their power, they are as illiberal as all the others. Don't you just wish Clegg serious harm?!

Nothing too fatal, I hope!
