If there is a hung Parliament

You’d think that David Miliband might want to get along with Clegg

Instead of accusing him of “anti-politics”, you know – apparently Clegg is in no mood to prop up a Gordon Brown led Labour Party and might insist on him being replaced by someone like Miliband (this is just a scenario you understand). The South Shields MP had this wonderful quote as a put down to Clegg:

‘If you look at the transformation of the country in the last 65 years it is because of the energy, drive, determination and sacrifice in the Labour party to take on the forces of inertia,”

Oh, hang on a minute, hasn’t the Labour Party only governed for 29 of those 65 years David? So the bulk of that transformation that you talked about must have happened under Conservative administrations – no? Your maths must be as good as Cable’s economics!
