Progressives reactions to the attacks on Clegg etc.

...Can we have a bit less bleating about the poor little LibDems, please? If they weren't by and large such filthy campaigners, they would deserve the sympathy they are currently getting. But they are. So they don't.
(Unless and until they change their ways, and stop the misrepresentations that disfigure every single leaflet they put out.)
I hope we get a hung Parliament. But it would be more likely, if there weren't more and more people fed up to the gills with the distorted graphs, '2 horse race' distortions and untruths, unpleasant personal attacks etc., that are most LibDem electioneers' stock in trade
See for instance http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/election-2010/7617709/General-Election-2010-Nick-Clegg-uncovered.html. When challenged by Michael Crick, Nick Clegg defended the vicious attacks on me by the LibDems in Norwich North, last year. When he expresses contrition, then maybe I'll think about jumping on the Cleggmaniac bandwagon.
Not before.

The Libdem tactics against me and the Greens in the Euro elections were not ‘one’ isolated incident – they are standard LibDem practice. That practice is disgraceful, and fully deserves to be denounced wherever and whenever it appears. One cannot take seriously the LibDems’ alleged interest in cleaning up British politics until they clean up their own act. That means no longer putting out leaflets in other Parties’ colours designed to confuse voters, no longer using distorted graphs, no longer saying ‘It’s a 2 horse race’ when it isn’t, etc etc etc. The way that the LibDems campaign debases politics, every day.
