Nick Clegg, the people's superman of the past week, has seriously critised Labour and Gordon Brown in particular.

The speculation is that the price for any Libdem deal with Labour would be that it ditches Gordon Brown as leader. David Milliband has been touted as a possible replacement who would be acceptable to the Libdems.

This will be a blow to Gordon Brown who spent 90 minutes last Thursday agreeing with Mr Clegg who, it is reported, is exasperated with the way the Prime Minister has suddenly decided to talk about changing the electoral system.

Not everyone is impressed with the leader of the Libdems though. Douglas Murray recalls his one and only meeting. The thought of a Lib/Lab administration at Westminster fills me with some foreboding. It didn't work well in the Scottish Parliament where the Libdems were treated as a small and irritating necessity to Labour's hold on power.

And apparently Mr C is a well reported trougher of parliamentary exes as well!

I'm sure you meant to say that the Lib Dems were Labour's Lap dogs in Holyrood. Nice for petting occasionally but with a tendency to a bit yappy.

Oh aye dram. I posted a video this morning with Andrew Neil grilling him on exactly that.

Maybe not, but they are producing some very good Election Broadcasts. Did everyone see this one which was shown on Tuesday? Powerful stuff and superbly executed.

And they say Cameron is slick? He's merely an amateur compared to Clegg.

Aye it's not a bad video John. Very similar in style to Alex Salmond's one at the weekend.
