I assure you the left leaning press generally dislike him as much as the right leaning press. The HuffPost is practically the daily mail as far as Clegg is concerned.

Perhaps they miss the good old days when they could just swap power between labour and the Conservatives....

who do you reckon the guardian will support for the election, though? do you really think they aren't going to support the lib dems? nick clegg, as their leader, will obviously, on the whole, not be put down too hard by them if they want to convince people to support his party

They're going to support Labour almost certainly.

The only newspapers I can see backing the Lib dems would be the Economist and the FT, the latter wrote an editorial praising the lib dems in government.

The others are far too tribal to support the liberals.

Why would two papers like those support an economic joke?

One would think because they're not an economic joke. Id also imagine that they're probably more qualified than you're.

But do tell me why they're exactly?

Nope, nor from the EU as is sometimes asked.

I might be doing an internship with them in the summer.

So out of the two of us I'm the only one that has, interesting!

Surprised you've not done any formal campaigning for them.

I thought the intro bit in regards to the scientist lady being a lib dem member was excellent.

I liked the line about "the only interesting thing labour have done is bought a pink van"

I thought it did a good job of showing what they have achieved and what they hope to achieve - pupil premium and mental health care respectively.

Obviously I'm biased but I liked all of it!

I know, back then the Lib Dems wanted to have a 50% tax rate on those earning over £100k.
