    Personally, I feel sorry for him because he obviously didn't aim to be. The coalition is probably the BIGGEST mistake he has ever made and will all be in vein if we don't get AV. I want to know opinions on a few questions... I'm interested.
    Why is it that people are hating more on the Lib Dems than they are on the Tories? Because they are the same old Conservative Thatcherists?
    Has Nick Clegg sold out on his party's ideals for power?
    And why are the students so angry with him for doing so?

    What do you think?

    He cannot possibly be as hated as Simon Cowell.

    I wouldn't say he was the most hated. There are others who will be more hated, that's for damn certain.

    However, I can guarantee that he isn't as well liked as he was during his election campaign.

    IMHO yes. He might not have had as much a part n f*~!ing up the country as Cameron has, but at least he didn't spend his whole election campaign lying again and again. It's actually quite humorous to watch the Lib Dem party broadcasts - they're almost satirical.

    He may not be the most hated. It's just that the people who dislike him are very vocal in showing their disgust.

    Do you agree with AV? Personally- I think it's rather silly. It's just an excuse for the Lib-Dems to "remain" in power (if you can call what they're doing now as being 'in power').
    Also- not to be on the side of The Clegg or anything- but what was he supposed to do, if not join the coalition? Let the Tories have a minority goverment and then- in turn- have every single one of their policies slashed and denounced by Labour? Although the coalition wasn't the ideal for Lib Dem voters, and they feel Nick Clegg has "sold out on his party's ideals"- at the time- it was what was best for Britain.

    Well I imagine Andy Choudry is mildly more hated. Maybe Clegg's the 2nd most hated.

    I want to get AV, not because I really want AV but because (being slightly left-wing) I want Proportional Representation (But that's another matter I posted on the actual AV thread) Most Lib Dem voters will not vote Lib Dem anymore because they feel sold out and betrayed. I don't feel the Lib Dems have been strict enough with what they 'believed' in.

    Both Tories and Lib Dems are hated as much as each other, and that hatred is spreading amongst the populace day-by-day.

    Both parties have instigated policies that weren't in their manifestoes and both party leaders lied during their election broadcasts. Additionally, the whole bunch appear to be totally inept at governing. So many bad decisions, u-turns, 'pauses' and re-writing of proposals.

    Nick Clegg is not alone in being a target for disdain by the electorate, and I think he should feel some sense of reassurance that we consider them all second-rate.

    Nick Clegg isn't so bad. The politicians that I do strongly dislike are Liam Fox and Diane Abbott.

    I totally agree. As a matter of fact, I think a good lot of MPs need out and I totally disagree with an unelected house of lords.

    I don't hate the guy, I just think he's a prat.

    Students won't forget the party's betrayal when they grow up and I think it might haunt the lib dems for a long time.

    He made his bed and must now lie in it.

    The coalition is probably the BIGGEST mistake he has ever made and will all be in vein if we don't get AV.
    Anyone could have predicted this would happen if he did what he did - abandon everything for what he feels is a 'miserable little compromise'.
    Why is it that people are hating more on the Lib Dems than they are on the Tories? Because they are the same old Conservative Thatcherists?
    Whilst you might dislike your opponent, you reserve a special hatred for those who betray you. There's also the kick in the teeth of democracy for someone to go so directly against what won them the votes to get into power.
    Has Nick Clegg sold out on his party's ideals for power?
    Short answer is yes. The long answer is that he thought he had one chance for the Lib Dems to have an impact on British politics, and took it. Of course, they might have had another chance under a different leader in the future, but that's another issue
    And why are the students so angry with him for doing so?
    Are you stupid?
